Abstract

Theoretical and practical aspects of complex health monitoring of man are reviewed. Health monitoring includes comparison of genetic testing results with the relevant physical features, life history data, present mode of life and the results of standard laboratory analysis. The history of origin and progression of sport genetics, its main directions, and the problems of genetic risk is briefly outlined. Options, indications and restrictions of genetic testing for prevention of monogene disorders with late manifestation, genetically proved limitation of sport activity, prediction of multifactorial diseases, optimization of training policy are discussed.
