re:GENE Comprehensive Genetic Risk Assessment
大量科學研究已指出不同癌症、重大疾病均是與遺傳風險有 莫大關係。如果您的直系親屬或家族中有人曾患上某些疾病,您 亦會有很高機會帶有患上有關疾病的基因,即有遺傳性疾病的先 天風險。假若,後天再加上不良生活習慣,如吸煙、飲酒等等, 令到患病風險自然更高。
儘管基因的因素是先天、不能改變的,但可透過後天的努力 ,如改善生活飲食習慣、定期做身體檢查、或積極尋求醫護人員 協助,以減低患病風險。因為不同癌症、重大疾病在初期都未有 明顯症狀,到了有顯著症狀時,為時已晚。re:GENE®特別為您提供一個機會及早了解自己先天疾病基因 風險,從而後天上主動預防各種疾病,給自己最佳的保障!
re:GENE Comprehensive Genetic Risk Assessment
Recognizing your genes to prevent diseases resulted from the environment. A fair number of scientific studies have linked cancer and major diseases to genetic risk. If you have an immediate family member or someone in your family who has had certain diseases, there is a high chance that you will also carry the gene for the disease, meaning there is a congenital risk of genetic disease. The risk is even higher when heredity combines with unhealthy lifestyle choices, such as cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption.
Although genetic factors are innate and cannot be changed, we can prevent health risks by leading a healthy lifestyle, for instance, improving dietary habits, having regular health check, or seeking help from medical professionals. As different cancers and major diseases have no noticeable symptoms in the early stages, it would be too late by the time they become apparent. re:GENE® offers you a special opportunity for you to recognise your genetic risk for congenital diseases, so that you can take a proactive step to safeguard your health from now on.

華人基因庫解讀結果更準確。不同種族的遺傳因子和罹患常見疾病的遺傳風險各 有不同。例如, 鼻咽癌於華人的病發率遠高於西方人。市面上不少基因檢測都用以西方人基因為主的資料庫作為檢測對比,如檢測對象為華人,準確性自然大打折扣。以中國人為主之基因資料庫,解讀基因檢測結果更準確。
此檢測針對華人常見的疾病範疇, 包括癌症、自身免疫疾病、心臟及血管 疾病、呼吸疾病等訂制的33項疾病檢測 項目。對比其他基因測試集中針對癌症, 專為華人訂制病種基因檢測,覆蓋更全面。

Why is it crucial to have regular medical check-ups? How often should I have a health screening?
It is recommended that adults aged 18 or above should undergo a regular health screening every year to detect potential health disorders or hidden illnesses. High risk groups and elderly should have their physical examinations every six months as it can be difficult to diagnose diseases in the early stages. Behavioural risk factors such as smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of sleep and exercise are also attributed to poor health, a comprehensive health screening can be conducted to acquire a full understanding of your physical condition. Individuals who have family history with serious illnesses like cancer or heart disease, should undergo appropriate health checks according to their needs.
What are the common health concerns and screening items for men?
Common health concerns in men include heart disease, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, nasopharyngeal cancer, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Physical examinations for men generally include: routine blood test, test for blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels, hepatitis test, electrocardiogram, chest and abdominal X-ray, faecal occult blood test, tumor markers for pancreatic, nasopharyngeal and prostate cancer, sonography, thyroid function screening, etc. These tests could help to assess top health risks for men, in particular colon cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, coronary heart disease, liver cirrhosis. Consider STD screening, fertility hormone and sexual health screening such as HPV DNA, syphilis spirochetes, HIV antibodies and antigens and testosterone if required, for a better preparation for marriage and childbirth.
What is the typical cost of a medical check-up plan?
re:HEALTH offers a variety of packages for medical check-up. Our standard health check-up package starts from $980, depending on your physical condition and needs. Please leave your name and contact number for enquiries about the check-up fees via WhatsApp. Our customer service team would advise you on the most suitable screening plan for you within a business day.
How long does it take to make an appointment?
Please make your appointment at least 1 working day in advance. Call (852) 2156 5857 or leave your name and contact number via WhatsApp (852) 6324 5948. We will respond within a business day. Depending on packages, some tests will not require you to fast beforehand, for example, it is not needed for HOTMAN System non-invasive cardiovascular examination, thereby test can be scheduled in the afternoon.
Is there anything in particular I should prepare for?
You need to be fasted for eight hours before your blood glucose test, i.e. no food intake in the morning before your examination. Only small portion of water intake is allowed.
