Determine Your Genetic Risk Of Going Bald
Knowing your risk of hair loss means having the chance to lower it.
This DNA app predicts your genetic risk of losing your hair and empowers you with a report focused on prevention.
If your genes are increasing your risk of male pattern baldness, there are preventions that may help lower that risk. Whether you still have a full head of hair or are already experiencing hair loss, based on your genetic testing results, we'll provide you with a personalized plan to combat further hair loss.
Because optimizing cardiovascular exercise is one of the lifestyle preventions that can help prevent hair loss, this app also includes an analysis of genes involved in fitness and athletic performance.
Am I Losing Hair And Going Bald?
Hair loss affects the majority of men in America. By age 35, more than 65% of men will have noticeable hair loss, and by age 50, more than 85%. Some even begin to notice significant hair loss before the age of 21.
Hair loss can negatively impact one’s lifestyle. Men with hair loss often report a decrease in self-confidence, negative effects on interpersonal relationships, problems in their professional lives. Recent studies have even found that balding is associated with a higher risk of more severe COVID infection.
More than 95% of the time, hair loss is caused by male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia), which usually manifests as a receding hairline or thinning hair on the crown (top) of the head.
The Good News
Hair loss is determined by both your genes and nongenetic factors, such as your lifestyle. This app will analyze your genes and generate a report that includes your genetic risk of hair loss along with a genetically tailored plan of prevention that may significantly delay or prevent hair loss.
This app is compatible with most DNA tests including 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and MyHeritage.
Once your DNA data is stored in your Sequencing.com account, click the app's 'Start' button. You'll receive your results in about 15 minutes.
