DNALabs offers a few different classes of genetic testing products… MatchMyMeds is a drug compatibility test used as a prescribing tool which uses information stored in a patient’s DNA to identify which medications should work, which ones won’t, and which ones may require a dosage adjustment. LoveMyHealth is a nutrition/lifestyle test which can identify things like potential nutrient deficiencies, risk for food sensitivities, it looks at mental health, hormonal health, physical fitness, and others. This test can help people understand their specific needs to ultimately support optimizing their health.
