Hey Explorer,

This week’s update includes two new reports based on two recent studies. The first report examines the genetics of vertigo (dizziness) and the second report looks at predisposition to frailty. Both studies also implicated genes that you can examine in detail with the exploration tools that are available with our Deep and Ultra Deep Whole Genome Sequencing! Looking for actionable advice? Read on and learn what you can do against vertigo

Vertigo: Vertigo causes an illusion of motion, leading to feelings of moving or spinning even when you remain stationary. Vertigo can either result from a problem with the inner ear which is the location of an organ that controls balance, or problems with certain parts of the brain. Attacks of vertigo may come and go, lasting from several seconds up to days, and may be mild or severe. Overall, nearly 1 in 7 individuals are affected by vertigo attacks. In this study, the researchers examined over 940,000 individuals of European ancestry and identified 6 genetic variants associated with vertigo.  [Published on October 7th, 2021Got your results already?

Frailty: Frailty is a medical condition characterized by reduced ability to function and diminished health. Individuals experiencing frailty often experience weight loss, reduced strength, and low activity levels. As a result, these individuals are more susceptible to having major health declines from issues such as infections or falls. Age increases an individual’s odds of becoming frail. This genome-wide association study aimed to identify regions of the genome that may predispose individuals to frailty. After examining more than 175,000 individuals of European ancestry, the researchers identified 14 genetic variants associated with the onset of frailty. [Published on August 25th, 2021] Got your results already?

Two of the genes linked to vertigo were OTOG and OTOGL. They are active in cells that line the inner ear where they contribute to structural stability. Mutations in those genes were also linked to different types of inherited deafness. 

You can use our genome browser and gene analysis tools to examine the OTOG and OTOGL genes and any other of the ~20,000 genes in your genome! Simply log in, open the gene analysis tool and search for the three gene names.

Follow Science and Improve Your Health

If you tend to experience repeated episodes of vertigo (dizziness), consider these tips:

  • Avoid moving suddenly.
  • Sit or lie down immediately when you feel dizzy. Lie still with your eyes closed in a darkened room if you're experiencing a severe episode of vertigo.
  • Avoid using caffeine, alcohol, salt and tobacco. Excessive use of these substances can worsen your signs and symptoms.
  • Drink enough fluids, eat a healthy diet, get enough sleep and avoid stress.
