The bloom pharmacogenetics test focuses on your body’s drug metabolizing enzymes and provides you with useful insight as to which medications are more useful, less useful and those that are potentially harmful. Pharmacogenetics is the study of how people respond differently to drug therapy based upon their genetics.
Within the United States alone, serious side effects from pharmaceutical drugs occur in two million people each year and account for as many as 100,000 deaths, according to the FDA. Costs associated with adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are estimated at $136 billion annually.
For any given symptom or illness there are a handful of name brand and generic drugs to treat it. Due to the vast nature of pharmacology, it can be near impossible for a physician to know exactly which drugs your body will respond to positively or negatively. This test allows you and your prescriber to know what drugs to use, which to use with caution, or to stay away from.
What traditionally works for one person may not necessarily work for another, and more frequently that has become the case. This test provides you and your prescriber the insight needed to know if your current medications or dosages are the right fit for you, while minimizing or eliminating undesirable side effects.
Knowing how your body processes specific medication can empower your physician to tailor a prescription drug strategy that is specific to you – taking the guessing game out of pharmacology and choosing only drugs and dosage that are known to work most effectively with your genetic makeup.
Over 300 medications are considered within the bloom Pharmacogenetics Test, part of the below medication categories. This includes a variety of commonly prescribed medications for pain management, blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, depression and many more.
