For Intermountain patients, any medical information from clinical visits, inpatient stays, test results, and more may be used in this registry. These may include, but are not limited to, diagnoses, medical test results, outcomes of medical procedures, and responses to medication.
The study researchers will be comparing genetic data for those with various disease and treatment patterns. For example:
Here are three links that show the process for genetic data uploading:
And here are step-by-step instructions for AncestryDNA and 23andMe.
Here are step-by-step instructions for how to use the Our Family Health tool for entering family health data and uploading this into the GeneRosity Registry.
Here is a step-by-step instruction sheet for the GeneRosity Registry main study questionnaire.
If you have multiple DNA results from different companies, please upload them all. Any possible information is useful.
No, only individuals that are 18 years or older can participate in this registry at this time.
