Intercare Wellness Abu Dhabi offers extensive personalized DNA & Genetics testing service to all the fitness and health conscious people.

This allows you to advance beyond the ‘one-size-fits-all’ suggestions – using the right skincare ingredients targeted to your own genetic blueprint.
Geneus is another DNA & Genetics test but aimed at those looking to get a deeper insight into future illnesses. Through a simple blood test, Geneus screens for a huge range of medical conditions from age-related conditions (dementia, Parkinsons, and Alzheimer’s disease), allergies and immune disorders (arthritis, asthma), heart-related conditions (heart attacks, blood pressure) to infertility and reproductive health. It can also screen for cancers, blood disorders and other conditions such as male pattern baldness and sleep apnea.
Telomere testing defines our biological age and it is an excellent indicator of individuals’ overall general health status. Knowing our biological age allows us to obtain a better understanding of the lifestyle habits that impact our aging process, allowing for more personalized medicine. DNA & Genetics testing results can not only change your overall health and wellbeing but provide a sense of relief from uncertainty and help you make informed decisions about managing your health care. The Intercare Wellness experts focus on identifying risk in the earliest stages and advising clients on personalized treatments; empowering people to take ownership of their wellness. Intercare Wellness is the only clinic in the UAE shifting the focus from a disease-oriented health care system toward one of wellness and prevention.
