How Does SelfDecode Work?

SelfDecode is a service that allows you to upload your DNA and lab results and receive custom health reports based on them. If you do not have a DNA file yet, you can purchase a kit from us.

The first step is to sign up for a subscription. You may or may not need to purchase a DNA kit based on 1) whether you already have one, and 2) whether your account option includes a kit. Please read below to see whether a DNA kit is included. 

We have four account options:

Free Plan (Try Before You Buy): Upload your DNA file for free. No credit card is required!  Includes Personalized Insights, 3 Health Reports, 7 Trait Reports, Lab Analyzer & Tracker, Action Plan Tool, Lifestyle Analyzer

Health Insights Plan: DNA Test Kit (saliva-based), Personalized Insights, 25 Health Reports, 15 Trait Reports, Personalized all-in-one supplement formula, Lab Analyzer, tracker & recommendations, Action Plan Tool, Lifestyle Analyzer, Discount at Lab Shop

Premium Insights Plan: Includes all features of the Health Insights Plan, plus 150+ Health Reports, 50+ Trait Reports, 600+ Personalized Genetic Blog Posts, SNP & Gene Explorer, Early access to New Features, and Ancestry Insights (coming soon!).

Annual Subscription: Includes all features of the Premium Insights Plan except for a DNA test kit, which can be purchased for an additional $99 plus shipping; Renews each year (unless you cancel) for $97

Lifetime Access: Same features as the Annual Subscription but with no annual fees, just a one-time payment of $297 to get unlimited access forever; DNA kit is not included

***To sign up for an Annual Subscription or Lifetime Access, please sign up for the Free Plan first and then purchase the subscription from your Account Settings according to these instructions: How to Purchase a Subscription

Unless you purchased the Health Insights Plan, the DNA kit is an additional $99 plus shipping ($12 within the US).

Once you receive the kit in the mail, you register the kit according to the instructions in the kit, spit in the tube, and put the sample back into the return packaging we provide. Then, you schedule a pick-up with the courier and it will be shipped back to us. 

Once we receive the kit, it takes about 6-8 weeks for the results to be uploaded to your account. We'll send you an email when they're ready!

Then, you can start viewing your Health Reports, which give you information about your personal genetic health risks and make diet, lifestyle, and supplement recommendations to help you counteract this risk. 

You can also upload bloodwork results to your account at any time and we will tell you what they mean.
