Categorization of diseases and traits

The categorization used by Pregenic is modelled upon ICD-11, which is the 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases. ICD-11 is a large taxonomy with thousands of classes for diseases. This is of great help to doctors all over the world since it provides a common language for reporting and monitoring diseases. At Pregenic, we keep it at the top levels, enabling you to efficiently look through your predispositions in the different categories.

On the top level, we categorise “Organic diseases”, “Mental diseases” mapped from ICD-11. Furthermore, we provide insights into the categories “Appearance”, where we look at genetics that influence how you look and the category “Other” where we have some fun facts. Furthermore, the aim is also to show which exact categories and sub-categories we cover in our report.

This category includes all mental diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia and schizophrenia.

Infectious diseases

This category refers to diseases caused by infections by e.g. bacteria or vira. Of course you need to be exposed to these infections for the disease to develop, however, your genetics might increase your risk of developing the disease upon exposure, due to various factors. This category includes chronic hepatitis B and C infection as well as leprosy.

This category refers to diseases of your immune system. This can for example be autoimmune disease or diseases that lower your immune responses.

Autoimmune thyroid disease
Behcet’s disease
Limited cutaneous systemic scleroderma
Sjögren’s syndrome
Systemic lupus erythematosus
Systemic sclerosis
Respiratory system diseases​

This category contains all the different diseases related to your respiratory system. Your respiratory system includes your airways, lungs and blood vessels.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

Pulmonary emphysema
Visual system diseases

This category includes all diseases related to your visual system, which consists of your eyes and its related nerves.
