The science of pharmacogenetics studies the way genes affect drug metabolism.
Genetic testing is now recommended before prescribing many medication and is required for several drugs that are associated with severe side effects. GENEdiagnostics examines the genetic variants of a patient to assess how the genetic characteristics may influence a medications effectiveness.
