Pharmacogenetics: The first step towards personalized medication

The Pharmacogenetics test will help you and your doctor to choose the most suitable medicines.

How many times have we seen that a particular medication does not feel the same as other people?

It is accurate, and it has been right all our lives; each person is different, and we feel medications (and foods) differently. The reasons for these differences are many, some known and some not yet.

One of the apparent reasons is genetic predisposition.

Science has identified some genes that directly influence how certain medications feel to us. They are not the only factor, but they are one of them, and essential and clinical services have to start taking it into account because they do not always do it.

Until relatively recently, carrying out this genetic analysis of pharmacological predisposition was something expensive and complicated, but recently we can do this analysis at prices that leave no room for excuses for not using this information before prescribing certain drugs.

Thanks to our pharmacogenetic DNA test, our clinician will be able to identify better which drugs will be more productive and suffer less adverse side effects.
