Diabetes & Pharmacogenomics (PGx)
Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is the study of how a person's unique genetic makeup (genome) influences his or her response to medications, especially for diabetes patients on two (2) or more medications.
Prescription Medication Use by Older Adults
34% of Older Adults in the US are Prescribed Potentially Inappropriate Drugs.
Genetics and Medications
When seeing a medical provider for a certain health condition or concern, patients are often prescribed a medication — and many times, multiple medications. Patients fill their prescriptions, take the medications for a period of time, and check-in with their provider to discuss how they're feeling, what side effects they're experiencing, and to explore potential alternatives.
Pharmacogenetic (PGx) testing bridges the gap in understanding how the role of how genetics can help with patient care and offers a simple non-invasive DNA test (buccal swab) that provides a report of the results to providers that can be discussed with patients.
