General Information About Pharmacogenetics

Pharmacogenetic analyses offer insights into specific DNA variations that might impact how your body interacts with certain drugs. As an illustration, our documents shed light on particular DNA changes that could determine the efficiency of enzymes responsible for drug metabolism. Additionally, some of our pharmacogenetic evaluations come with Medication Insights. These insights delve into how specific DNA variations might alter your body's reaction to particular drugs.

Possessing a certain DNA variation could mean that your body metabolizes some drugs quicker or slower than the average person. However, the presence of such a variation doesn't necessarily affect the majority of drugs.

A myriad of factors, both genetic and external, play a role in how effectively your body handles medications. Factors such as age, body mass, the health of your liver and kidneys, concurrent drug intake, and even lifestyle choices can influence this. Moreover, there might be other DNA changes, not covered in these analyses, that could influence drug metabolism.

It's crucial to consult with a medical expert regarding how DNA variations might alter your drug metabolism. It's advised not to base medical decisions solely on these test outcomes. Before making any medical decisions, it's recommended to get these results verified through a separate genetic analysis as prescribed by a healthcare professional.
