Pharmacogenomic testing looks at how genetic variations can affect medication metabolism.
It can be helpful to prevent adverse drug reactions and assist in prescribing effective medications and treatments. No individual is the same; learn how your genetics influence your medications here.
Are you concerned about your family history and risk for disease? Drawing a pedigree may be useful in identifying “red flags” in your family history that you should bring to your care provider's attention. Med City Nurse would be happy to help you draw a pedigree.
Your genetics dictate everything, from how you look, to your health. Genetic testing for inheritable disease has many benefits. Your care provider may refer you to a genetic counselor if your family history is concerning for inheritable disease. You may be unsure if genetic testing is appropriate for you, information and links are provided. Learn more here.
