DNA4LifeHave you ever wondered how one medication works for all people that it is prescribed for?  Can medications be one size fits all?  The simple answer is they don’t but DNA4Life Pharmacogenetic Tests can help you and your doctors better understand what medications will work best for you.

DNA4Life InfographicThe DNA4Life Drug Sensitivity Report is the most comprehensive and affordable pharmacogenetic test on the market.  The test reviews how and individual will respond to over 100 of the most commonly prescribed medications. The test analyzes the 12 most common genes affecting drug response and metabolism.

The idea behind DNA4Life’s phamacogenetic program is to help doctors develop treatments  tailored to an individual based on their genetics and other personal characteristics.

DNA4Life packageThe test is simple.  The kit comes with two sterile swabs and you simply rub the swabs inside your cheek for 45 seconds.  After the swabs have dried, you place them in the completed Sample Collection Envelope and after placing the collection envelope and requisition form into the pre-paid return envelope, you drop it in the mail.  A gentle swab of the cheek and a trip to the post office or mail room is all it takes, and we would love to provide you with the opportunity to see your results. Rest assured – all test results are completely private, accessible only to the test taker.

I have long been interested in how genetics impact health, fitness, and drug interactions.  I just received my results and while, due to privacy reasons, I will not share the full details of my 15 page report with you all, I will tell you that the report was fascinating. The report listed the top 120+ drugs commonly prescribed for various conditions.  It color coded which would work best and worst for me based on the genes that metabolize them.  I will most definitely be taking the report to my doctor to go over the results.

One thing that did stand out was that I have a gene allele that makes me metabolize caffeine ultra-rapidly.  Knowing this explains how I can drink highly caffeinated beverages at any time of day or night and it not keep me from sleeping.  People are constantly asking me how I have tea or soda late in the afternoon, and now I know. One might think that it is great that I drink caffeine at any time and it not keep me awake but on a down side it also means that medications that make use of caffeine to test for certain illnesses and conditions will not work for me since my system burns it up so quickly.

Genetic testing for medication efficiency or pharmacogenetics is an amazing science that can have many great benefits.
