How Your DNA Influences Your Medications
Optimizing Healthcare With DNA and Genetic Testing
Medication is designed to treat health conditions. Unfortunately, it can also have the opposite effect. If you’ve ever experienced adverse side effects (such as nausea, headaches or inflammation) after taking medication, you’re not alone.
Typically physicians put patients through a process of trial and error until they find a medication that works. The result can be a stressful, time-consuming process that often takes months to find relief. Fortunately, there’s now a better way to optimize treatment plans utilizing ClarityX Pharmacogenetic testing.
What Is Genetic Testing for Medication Response?
Genetic testing for medications, also known as pharmacogenetics (PGx), examines your genetic profile to find variations that may affect your medication sensitivity. Every DNA molecule hosts genes, which produce enzymes used to metabolize medications. Even a small variation in a gene can affect the function of the resulting enzyme.
Pharmacogenetics generally focuses on the CYP450 enzyme, which is used to metabolize over 70% of FDA approved medications. After you complete the test, you’ll discover the following:
- Whether a medication is metabolized too slowly (making it ineffective)
- Whether a medication is metabolized too quickly (causing adverse effects)
- Whether a medication will interact negatively with other prescribed drugs
By learning more about your medication response, your physician can prescribe a more optimal treatment plan and medication protocol based on your genetic profile.
