Develop a better understanding of how you will respond to medications with PGx testing
Pharmacogenetics is the study of genetic variations that influence an individual’s response to medications. Genetics account for 20–90% of the variability in medication disposition and effects.
The rate of medication metabolization varies between individuals and each person responds uniquely to treatment. The same approach may not be effective, or worse, may cause adverse side effects in one patient and not another. Those who are poor or rapid metabolizers are prone to drug toxicity or lower effectiveness of their medications.
Who is it for?
PGx testing is frequently utilized for when one or more of following issues is present:
Consumption of multiple prescriptions
770,000 injuries and deaths annually in the United States are tied to adverse medication reactions
The pharmacogenetic testing service, PGx testing, uses your genes to determine how they will respond to a particular medicine or a combination of medicines and identifies their unique sensitivities to possible effects. As a result, healthcare providers can minimize or completely avoid trial-and-error dosing and substantially reduce the risk of potential adverse medication events.
