DrPGx™ is short for Doctor of Pharmacy (Dr) and a scientific field called Pharmacogenomics (PGx). With a simple swab of the cheek we can see little parts of your DNA that are responsible for determining how you metabolize (or process) medications. Everyone processes medications differently; some slower, some faster. Sometimes people barely metabolize certain medications at all.
Based on your genetics we can educate you on how your body handles the medications you are on, alternative medications that are a good fit, and medications that could cause a severe reaction.
In combination with your genetic results, your Pharmacist will also look at many other factors that can contribute to how your body processes medications including:
- Drug Interactions
- Medication Timing and Spacing
- Diet and Supplements
- Age, Kidney, and Liver Function
- Laboratory Levels
- And More
The best part is you can use your results for life. We can see the results for medications that you could potentially need to take in the future and know if they are the right fit for you. Wouldn’t you want to take a proactive or active approach to your health with just a simple swab?
