Genetics knowledge can enable effective action

People with high cholesterol and FH are 22 times more likely to develop coronary heart disease than those with normal cholesterol and no FH.3 Knowing your genetic risk can help you work with your healthcare provider to create a personalized cholesterol-lowering plan that might include:

Cholesterol management:

If you have FH, your healthcare provider might recommend treatment with statins or alternative medications to help remove some of the extra cholesterol from your body.

Lifestyle recommendations:

Your healthcare provider may suggest lifestyle changes to limit FH’s impact on your health. They may recommend a regular exercise routine or a diet that’s low in saturated and trans fats, salt, and added sugars.

Family care:

As hereditary health disorders run in families, your results can help your loved ones understand their health risk.

Clinical-grade, Actionable Results:

Your results can help you make a plan with your healthcare provider that reduces your risk of breast and ovarian cancer.

Complimentary Genetic Counseling Available:

Our board-certified genetic counselors can help explain how your results may impact you.

Physician-ordered test:

All Color tests are ordered by a physician. Your own doctor can do this for you, or Color can have an independent physician review your information and order your test, if appropriate.

How it works:

  1. Buy your test online: We’ll connect you with an independent physician who can order testing on your behalf.
  2. Provide a saliva sample: Just spit in a tube, then mail it back to Color using prepaid postage.
  3. Get your results: You can view your results online, and meet with a board-certified genetic counselor to discuss next steps.
  4. Create a health plan: You and your healthcare provider can use your results to tailor your prevention and screening plan.

*  You must be at least 18 to use Color. If you have a personal or family history of cancer, you may want to consider Color’s Hereditary Cancer Test.
