Advice for Staying Healthy and Saving Money on Medication
Pharmacogenetics is the study of how people respond differently to drug therapy based upon genetic. There are no stronger indicators of medication response than your genetics.
From the moment medications enter your body, the body is working to actively process or metabolize them. All drugs will eventually leave the body by a process called elimination. However, the time that they stay active, in your bloodstream, is often determined by genetic variations that change the way your drug-processing enzymes work.
Medications that are not in line with your genetic makeup, will end up costing you more money in the long run. This will come in the form of drugs not working as they should to costly side effects. Save money on medication by knowing your pharmacogenetic information, something we call precision medicine.
