DNA and Genetic Testing

Optimizing Healthcare With DNA and Genetic Testing

Medication is designed to help people treat health problems. Unfortunately, it can 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 — a newly prescribed drug has a 20% chance of causing unexpected symptoms.

In the past, many physicians would put patients through a game of trial and error until they found a medication that worked. The result was a taxing, time-consuming process that forced patients to experience a series of negative side effects. Fortunately, there’s now a better way to optimize treatment plans: DNA testing.

What Is DNA Testing?

DNA testing, also known as genetic testing or pharmacogenetics (PGx), examines your genetic material to find variations that may affect your medicine 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 clinically used drugs. 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 sensitivity, your physician can prescribe the optimal treatment and dosages for your body.

Where Can I Find Genetic Testing?

Now that you understand the benefits of PGx testing, you might be wondering where you can find a DNA test for yourself. At ClarityX, we offer two genetic testing options: Mindwell and Max Rx. Both are designed to provide valuable insight regarding your unique metabolism needs.
