Personalized Medicine Overview
If you’ve ever tried a medicine that didn’t work or caused you side effects, you know that medicines don’t work the same for everyone. Your genes influence the way your body responds to specific medicines. Pharmacogenomics can help.
Who should get a test?
Anyone who wants to learn about their genes should consider getting a Center for Medical Genetics test. In particular, people who are concerned about their health, people who have started or are considering taking certain prescription medicines, and people who are planning to have children or expecting a baby may benefit the most from a Center for Medical Genetics test.
We have a solution called Pharmacogenomics
When you’re on a medicine that doesn’t match your genetics, you could have unwanted side effects or not be helped by the medicine. The good news is that now the Center for Medical Genetics can perform genetic testing and help your healthcare provider select the medications that are more likely to work better for you.
