Simplifying the method for collecting the DNA samples so that any patient, doctor, or medical institution can easily take it and mail it in for testing
Here are some of the most common reasons for testing:
Conditions Not Improving
When you’re taking a medication and not receiving the outcome you expect, testing can reveal reduced sensitivity to medication and suggest more effective options.
Unwanted Side Effects
Whether you’re experiencing a minor side effect like dizziness or a major adverse drug reaction, testing can suggest alternative medications or dosages that are better tolerated.
Taking Multiple Medications
Do you ever wonder if your medications are interfering with each other? Testing can alert you and your doctor to potential drug on drug interactions.
