APOE4 Test: APOE Gene Test
Comprehensive Analysis of the APOE Gene for Protecting Brain Health
The APOE Brain Health DNA Test Analysis includes:
- An analysis of your APOE gene
- Includes APOE genotype status (ε2, ε3 or ε4)
- An assessment of health risks and benefits based on your APOE gene analysis
- Includes an assessment of risk of Alzheimer's disease
- A comprehensive review of the latest research on the functions and biochemistry of the APOE gene
- Detailed diet, lifestyle, and supplement recommendations based on SelfDecode’s Proprietary Biochemical Analysis and experience with over 1,000 clients
- A Personalized APOE Diet Guide to help reduce the non-genetic risk of Alzheimer's based on your APOE gene version (known as your APOE 'epsilon genotype')
APOE2 (ApoE-ε2) Gene Variant
Contrary to popular belief, the ApoE-ε2 allele actually decreases the function of ApoE. Although this variant of ApoE-ε2 is neuroprotective (decreased risk of Alzheimer's disease), it does confer health risks of its own.
If your DNA is found to have the ApoE-ε2 genotype, it becomes even more important to regularly monitor blood biomarkers and live an ApoE-ε2-compatible lifestyle.
This app will identify your APOE genotype and, based on your APOE gene, you'll receive clear solutions for better health
PPAR-γ Function and The ApoE Gene
Reduced ApoE function can raise your cholesterol and make your brain more susceptible to damage. The ApoE-ε4 genotype results in significantly lower function and levels of the ApoE protein.
The PPAR-γ protein is responsible for controlling the production of the ApoE proteins and several activators of PPAR-γ have been proposed as preventive or therapeutic measures for Alzheimer’s.

Stay Up-To-Date With DNA Research
Sequencing's new Education Center provides articles on genetic research, DNA testing technologies, and precision medicine. It's a great place to visit to stay up-to-date on the latest genetic discoveries.
For example, the Education Center contains a section on how DNA impacts the side of having a side effect from a medication. If you've ever experienced a side effect after taking medication, it may be due to your DNA.
This app analyzes your DNA data and provides personalized insights for protecting and improving brain health.
Once your DNA data is stored in your Sequencing.com account, after purchasing this DNA report simply click the app's 'Start' button and you'll receive your report in about 30 minutes.
If your DNA data is not already stored in your account, you can either import your data from a DNA test you've already taken (such as from 23andMe or AncestryDNA) or you can order one of our DNA tests.
