WHAT IS GENETIC TESTING?
Genetic testing is often used to identify changes in a person’s DNA sequence which can be helpful to discover genetic differences, anomalies, or mutations that may prove pathological. While there are many options, at Aloha Integrative Health we offer the services of GeneSight and IDgenetix®. GeneSight Psychotropic is a pharmacogenomic test that analyzes clinically important genetic variations in your DNA. While IDgenetix® is an advanced pharmacogenomic test that improves the chances of getting a response or remission in depression or anxiety.
These tests are used to analyze clinically important genetic variations that may affect your response to medications. The results of these tests can provide your doctor with information about which medications may be more likely to work.
