Advances in science make it possible to better predict your medication response and identify potential health problems before they start. Pharmacogenetics is a type of genetic testing which can help patients avoid much of the trial and error associated with developing an effective treatment plan. This powerful, proactive information allows doctors to treat each patient as a unique person. Personalized medicine using genetic testing can assist in quickly improving your quality of life, lowering unnecessary medication costs, and reducing the risk of possible side effects. A GeneTrait pharmacogenetic test is easy, accurate, and provides lifelong benefits to anyone beginning a new medication regimen or having difficulty with their current medications.
