Choosing which reports to view

You will be asked to choose whether you would like to include or exclude Carrier Status* and Genetic Health Risk* reports. Our health reports provide information about genetic risks for health conditions that could be relevant for you, your children, and potentially other family members. Deciding whether or not you want to learn about these risks is a personal choice. You have control over what types of information you would like to see and can choose to exclude certain reports that you may not want to view.

If you choose to exclude these reports, you can include them at a later time from within your account settings. You will also have the choice to remove these reports from view at a later time, however, please remember that once you have viewed your genetic information, the knowledge is irrevocable.

It is important to note that reports on wellness and traits are always visible.

*The 23andMe PGS test uses qualitative genotyping to detect clinically relevant variants in the genomic DNA of adults from saliva collected using a collection device (Oragene·DX model OGD-500.001) for the purpose of reporting and interpreting genetic health risks and reporting carrier status. It is not intended to diagnose any disease. The relevance of each report varies based on ethnicity. Each genetic health risk report describes if a person has variants associated with a higher risk of developing a disease, but does not describe a person’s overall risk of developing the disease. These reports are not intended to tell you anything about your current state of health, or to be used to make medical decisions, including whether or not you should take a medication or how much of a medication you should take. Our carrier status reports can be used to determine carrier status, but cannot determine if you have two copies of any genetic variant. These carrier reports are not intended to tell you anything about your risk for developing a disease in the future or anything about the health of your fetus, or your newborn child's risk of developing a particular disease later in life. For Gaucher Disease Type 1, we provide a single report that includes information on both carrier status and genetic health risk.
