Introducing: HomeDNA Food & Pet Sensitivity DNA Test

Get reliable, actionable answer answers from your DNA!

Do you ever get an upset stomach, gas, diarrhea, or feel sleepy after eating? Do you suddenly have itchy eyes or difficulty breathing and suspect you might be sensitive to your new kitten’s dander? In your search for answers, the HomeDNA Food & Pet Sensitivity DNA test is a great place to start. We’re very excited about the newest addition to our high-quality suite of at-home DNA tests and are confident it can help you and your family members get the answers you need to live a more comfortable life.
Here's an overview of our brand-new scientific analysis.

It’s an easy, fast, and affordable way to pinpoint sensitivities

The personalized report from our DNA test tells you whether you are genetically more sensitive or less sensitive to specific irritants, giving you detailed information from your DNA about factors that may be causing discomfort from the inside out. In addition to identifying any genetic predispositions to a variety of common foods, this analysis also provides results for sensitivity to pet dander.

Results include your genetic predisposition for sensitivity to:

  1. Gluten—Gluten is a protein in wheat, barley, and rye. Humans do not have the enzymes to break down gluten, leaving tiny particles in the digestive tract that may cause sensitivities for certain individuals
  2. Lactose—Lactose is a sugar found in animal-sourced milk and dairy products. Certain genetic markers may make it more likely to have difficulty digesting foods containing lactose
  3. Cow Milk Protein—Milk is made up of water, fat, lactose, minerals, and protein. Sensitivity to milk protein is not the same as lactose sensitivity, but it is one of the most common ones for children
  4. Egg—Egg sensitivities are very common, and many people are sensitive to the white part, called albumin, versus the yolk
  5. Peanut—Peanut sensitivity is extremely common and is often passed down through generations
  6. Other Foods—Many people are sensitive to other foods that are different from the ones included elsewhere in this test; they may include tree nuts, soy, corn, yeast, fish, and shellfish
  7. Pet Dander—Pet dander consists of tiny particles of skin shed from animals that have hair, fur, or feathers. Certain genetic markers may make an individual more sensitive to contact with dander
  8. Histamine—Histamine is a natural compound that may be found in foods that are aged and fermented, red wine, and more. Some people have an inability to break down excess histamine, which can cause sensitivities

In addition to giving conclusions about your sensitivity to individual irritants, the report also provides comprehensive and detailed diet, lifestyle, and supplement tips based on your results, so you can start making proactive changes right away.
