Genetic Profiling

Genetic profiling is the analysis of DNA from samples of body tissues or fluids, especially when conducted in order to predict susceptibility to a specific disease and disorder such as cancer, diabetes, gout, and cardiovascular diseases, among others. This procedure also screens for genetic markers related to adverse reactions towards drugs commonly used in treating certain diseases. This information may assist your clinician to prescribe a safer and more effective medical treatment plan. It can also screen for traits linked to your overall health and wellness.

By having a better knowledge of some of the genetic risks for a disease, you will be in a position to make positive changes to your lifestyle and diet.
