- Genomic Tests Prescribed By Doctors
"Your genome knows much
more about your medical
history than you do".
Thank you for joining the Genomic Revolution.
The fields of medicine and genetics go hand in hand - one can even say looking at the recent surge in genetic testing, that they complement each other! While medical professionals bring age old experience and expertise - the extremely advanced gene testing techniques provide a key - a base for understanding and curing several unknown disorders. Prognostic and diagnostic testing are key to a superior and immaculately planned lifestyle. One where an individual has the scope of acquiring knowledge about gene mutations early in life - one where he can help his family physician assign correct dosage of medication for him. Utopia is not a dream - if we are able to find the divine equilibrium in this very world.
How can Genetic Testing help Doctors?
Doctors rely on clients coming in post symptoms for diagnosis. What if you could foresee risks for certain life disorders early enough to prevent them? In cases of Hypothyroidism, Diabetes, Obesity, Hypertension, Cardiovascular Disease, Vitamin Deficiency - a bit of precaution, early medical consultation could save several years in an individual’s life. Having access to such information would allow physicians to take better care, alert their patients on time and ensure speedy recovery.
Gene mutations are personally responsible for a large number of disorders as well : Thalassemia, Hereditary Cancers, Cystic Fibrosis, Metabolic Deficiencies, etc. Early discovery of these would profusely aid their management too! Factors such as stressed patients, limited time, financial constraints can also be approached a bit better!
The efficacy, choice and dosage of medication can also hugely benefit from tests in the field of pharmacogenomics. The same medicine affects individuals in different ways - information on drug behaviour pre-administration would save time and effort. Knowledge on drug response (or lack thereof) would be a boon for these gifted professionals!

"Primary Genetic Risks Report": This highlights which all genetic markers were tested for each condition to calculate your risk score and how you stack up against the population average.
"Post Genetic Counseling Recommendations Report": This generated by taking into account your family history and lifestyle habits, post counseling. This report provides only the recommendations, actionable steps and screening tests related to each of your high risk conditions.
