Pharmacogenetic testing. How it works and how to apply.
Genes are the building blocks of our DNA. Each gene is formed by a specific genetic code. Genes encode the production of specific proteins, including the proteins, which are known as enzymes.
Genetic variants can induce specific reactions in drug use. We then speak of side effects. The most common side effects are gastrointestinal disturbances, nausea, fatigue, reduced concentration and muscle weakness.
Pharmacogenetics examins the genetic variants that affect how the body reacts to certain substances. This knowledge is very important when prescribing a drug. If more medications are prescribed, and this is often the case, then it is important to know how this combination of drugs is broken down by our metabolism.
