Stress Induced Depression

What is Depression

How we turn raw DNA data into the "Stress Induced Depression" report

Major Depression Disorder, a common response to stress is highly heritable. This means that variations in your DNA have an influence on whether you experience as a response to stressful situations. Reference 1. Reference 2.

People may respond to stressful events and chronic stressors in many different ways. For example, while some people may experience anger or exhaustion when dealing with stress, others may experience depression.

Recently, scientists have discovered variants in your DNA that affect this particular response to stress, and people who have these DNA variations are more likely to experience depression as a result of stress.

Our advanced algorithm analyzes the parts of your DNA that are important for this trait, and it estimates your degree of risk for experiencing depression in stressful circumstances.

Why DNA is only part of the story

When it comes to your likelihood of stress induced depression, DNA is only part of the story. The environment also plays a role.

This is good because this gives you the ability to positively influence your environment to manage your stress, and mitigate your response. We tell you what your DNA predicts, so you can use it to help manage your stress response.
