Kelvin's Story

"DForesee® gave me a different perspective on diabetes prevention."

My dad has type 2 diabetes and I have seen him struggling with the disease for as long as I can remember. With problems with his eyesight, he measures his blood sugar level religiously and goes on all these special diets. Knowing diabetes is a lifelong condition and witnessing how my dad’s life has changed since his diagnosis, I could not help but wonder if I would become like him one day. 

I came across DForesee® when I accompanied my dad to his regular follow-up with our family doctor. I told our doctor about my concerns and he recommended that I get a genetic test to find out my risk of developing diabetes. 

My test result came back in 2 weeks. While my genetic score is on the high end of the spectrum, I was told that I only have a moderate risk of developing diabetes and that maintaining a healthy weight and an active lifestyle would help lower my risk further.

Having “bad genes” in my DNA doesn’t mean I am condemned to develop diabetes. The test addressed my desire to learn more about diabetes risk; more importantly, it supported the development of a personalised healthcare plan tailored to further reduce my risk of developing the disease. In addition to understanding my body better, I now have a clearer picture of the disease and no longer feel overwhelmed when I think about it.

It’s better to foresee than to lament

Finding out about your precise risk of developing chronic diseases is now possible once we know your unique genetic makeup and variable risk factors (such as body weight). DForesee® is an innovative risk assessment tool that reads into your genes and tells you the likelihood of developing diabetes  – not something conventional screening tests can deduce. The results may provide a guide to your professional medical team in designing a personal healthcare plan and guidelines to help you – and you only – to lower the risk of getting diabetes. This is the best assessment to have for both health-conscious individuals as well as those at risk of diabetes.
