Make Informative Decisions
The enzymes your body produces to metabolize medications are determined by your genetics. Your unique genotype also specifies how active your body is in creating the necessary enzymes. Your enzyme levels influence how you react to different medications. The traditional way of finding the right medication requires trial and error.
Reduce Your Risk of Negative Side Effects
Some medications can cause adverse reactions, from irritating side effects to life-threatening complications. Genetic testing can reveal which medications are not compatible with the enzymes that your body creates, helping you and your physician chose or avoid medications.
