Although a “one size fits all” approach has been traditionally used to prescribe medications, a number of factors affect how medications work in the body including your genetics, age, kidney function, use of other medications, and certain medical conditions. The GenXys team of pharmacists, geneticists, and physicians has developed an evidence-based system that generates personalized treatment options for you.
Depending on your genetic makeup, some medications may work more effectively, less effectively or cause side effects for you. Our pharmacogenetic testing, myPGx, report on how your genes affect the way medications work within your body. These results can be used to help you and your health care professional select the best medication and dosing for you.
TreatGx equips you and your health care professional with a software tool that can swiftly provide medication options based on your genetic profile, strengthening your ability to make informed decisions to improve your health. Prescribing medication is not as straightforward as patients may assume-medication that is prescribed can be ineffective, and sometimes even harmful. Selecting the right medication is not straightforward- medications may not always work, and in addition may cause harmful side effects. TreatGx software provides support for the management of common medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and pain. Your genetic information uncovers another critical layer of information required for your doctor to optimize medication decisions with you.
TreatGx provides decision support for the management of common conditions. By combining your genetics and clinical information with up-to-date evidence, TreatGx generates medication options that are safe and effective for you. These options may be discussed with your family physician, pharmacist, or other primary care providers.
