Genomic testing is used to empower every medical professional and patient with the specific knowledge to properly prescribe and dose a patient’s symptoms and conditions with accurate medication in specific dosages for optimized results. All of this can be done by providing genetic information specific to the patient and the condition to be treated. Up to now, patient diagnostics are done through a trial-and-error dosage scheme based on historical data. Today, through molecular genetics, a patient can now have a treatment plan tailored specifically for their body type and physiology. In other words, their known genetic code becomes an “owners manual” unlike any that have been available to date for patient diagnostics – a personalized medicine profile.
WHY DO I NEED AN ADDICTION PGx PANEL?
Genetic testing has potential benefits whether the results are positive or negative for a gene mutation. Test results can provide a sense of relief from uncertainty and help people make informed decisions about managing their health care. For example, a negative result can eliminate the need for unnecessary checkups and screening tests in some cases. A positive result can direct a person toward available prevention, monitoring, and treatment options. Some test results can also help people make decisions about having children.
IF I’M GETTING AN ADDICTION PGx PANEL ARE THERE ANY OTHER TESTS I SHOULD LOOK INTO?
The addiction genomic test kit will come with 2 buccal swabs. This test will use the DNA collected from the buccal swabs to test a wide variety of genes that have been identified as having a significant clinical impact.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY TEST RESULTS?
Test results generally takes between 5-7 business days after your sample has been received by the lab.
The results will be reported in a format to make it easy for the patient as well as the patient’s healthcare provider to understand how the results can impact the patient’s response to most of the commonly prescribed medications.
