Complex diseases are common health problems caused by genetic and other internal and external factors. Probabilities and results on this report are based only on your genetic profile.
What are complex diseases?
Multifactorial conditions are common health problems and rare conditions caused by a combination of both genetic and other factors that may include internal factors such as ageing and exposure to external environmental factors such as diet, lifestyle, and exposure to chemicals or other toxins.
Multifactorial conditions have in common that they do not always develop despite the suggested presence of an affected gene(s). The inherited affected gene(s) make the person at increased risk for developing the condition (predisposed or susceptible) but unless other factors are present, the condition may never develop at all.

Parkinson disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system. The disorder affects several regions of the brain, especially an area called the substantia nigra that controls balance and movement.
