Since the beginning of the pandemic, individuals are now more aware and have taken more initiative to be more physically healthy. However, raising awareness is only the first step in a collective effort to encourage Malaysians to take control of personal healthcare and live a healthier lifestyle. Keen to further empower, MyLifeCodes, the newly founded genetic testing solutions provider in Malaysia, has recently introduced exciting packages to inspire individuals to understand their body better.
Founded in October 2020, MyLifeCodes has grown significantly in the past few months and has successfully improved the lives of over 120 patients. Led by Jacky Loong, who has eight years of experience as a healthcare provider, and in collaboration with expert medical professionals in Bioinformatics, MyLifeCodes offers a convenient, affordable and accessible approach to genetic testing. Keen to provide a solution-based approach to its patients, MyLifeCodes collates data from Malaysian and East Asian DNA samples, which ensures higher accuracy in comparison to other test kits in the local market. Striving to further improve others’ lives, MyLifeCodes strongly believes that genetic testing is necessary to lead a healthier lifestyle and vocally advocates prevention as a better solution than cure.
The introduction of MyLifeCodes and its exciting packages coincides with a critical period where non-communicable diseases (NCDs) or non-infectious medical conditions in Malaysia are worrying. Among the common types of NCDs are diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol, all of which are major risk factors.
The Ministry of Health recently released the National Health and Morbidity Survey 2019, which shares a staggering 1.7 million people in Malaysia currently live with three major risk factors, with a further 3.4 million living with two major risk factors.
With many solutions for patients to understand their health better, MyLifeCodes are offering three different packages; the Basic, Premium and Platinum packages. Amongst the key highlights of these packages are TP53 Gene cancer-risk, 23 health-risk, 11 nutrigenomics and 14 weight management reports, which tests an individual’s risks of developing a wide range of conditions.
All three of these packages also detail other conditions by providing wellness, allergy and sensitivity, skin condition, weight management, fitness, and personality traits reports. Additionally, for the Premium and Platinum packages, patients are offered a free COVID-19 risk report and a vitamin and mineral analysis.
The data collated from MyLifeCodes’s reports are highly accurate. The reports are compared to the average predicted genetic risk, calculated based on data samples from the Malaysian population. Its accuracy and reliability are further enhanced with MyLifeCodes’ usage of the East Asian Genomic Coverage chip sequencing, a process that involves clinical research and scalability by combining genome-wide coverage from East Asian populations. Also, to understand health risks and to treat or prevent health complications, expert medical professionals are able to give patients free consultations upon receiving these genetic testing reports.
Patients interested in undergoing genetic testing with MyLifeCodes are able to undergo tests from the comfort of their homes and are able to be delivered throughout the country.
