Genetic Testing

The Pharmacogenetic Test empowers you to be an advocate for your own health. Testing provides information about how people with your genotype commonly respond to prescribed medications. With knowledge of your genetic make up, treatments can be tailored to you. Our test report details how your body metabolizes medications and suggests alternative prescriptions when increased sensitivity or reduced response is likely. Testing is beneficial whether you’re in good health and taking an active role in your personal healthcare or you’re suffering from a serious condition and facing decisions about treatment. Testing may be right for you if you are experiencing the following:

  • Condition not improving
  • Unwanted side effects
  • Allergic or adverse reactions
  • Taking multiple medications
  • Starting or taking anticoagulant therapies

Traditional medicine employs a trial and error approach, but pharmacogenetic testing offers specific guidance about medications that work best for you based on your DNA.  A simple cheek swab can reveal which medications may cause side effects or even dangerous adverse reactions-the cause of more than 100,000 deaths in the U.S. each year.
