Genetics

DNA tells a unique backstory about our health. It helps illuminate patterns in family medical history, gives clues about our risk for chronic disease, and guides clinicians to prescribe highly personalized treatment. Our testing for lipoprotein and coagulation genetics, and pharmacogenetics can help uncover a more complete picture of a patient’s health.

Comprehensive Testing

Reveal Inherited Risk.

True Health provides testing for various genetic markers with a wide-range of clinical uses. Testing for lipoprotein genetic markers, such as the apoE genotype, can help evaluate a patient’s inherited cardiometabolic risk. Coagulation genetic markers, such as Factor V Leiden and Prothrombin G20210A Mutation, determine whether a patient is at significantly higher risk for blood clotting. Pharmacogenetics tests, such as CYP2C19 or Warfarin Sensitivity, help predict a patient’s individual response to a given medication, allowing for highly personalized treatment plans.

Available Testing
  • ApoE Genotype
  • CYP2C19
  • Factor V Leiden
  • MTHFR 677 & 1298
  • Prothrombin G20210A Mutation
  • Warfarin Sensitivity

Patients: Learn the facts about genetics.

Testing is Just the First Step

Currently, there is no accepted technology that can change a person’s genes. However, clinicians can respond to genetic risk by altering treatment plans accordingly. Understanding a patient’s health risks and predicted responses to medications, such as clopidogrel and warfarin, allows clinicians to tailor medication and lifestyle plans. This helps mitigate patient’s underlying genetic risk, which may help prevent the early onset of conditions, such as cardiovascular disease. Because genetic risk is inheritable, the information from these tests may also help benefit patient’s family members for years to come.

Health Management

How True Health Helps

Learning about genetic health risks can be overwhelming. True Health can help patients understand their genetic test results and how these inherited risks may affect their health. Our team of health professionals is available to work one-on-one with patients to support them as they follow their clinicians’ customized treatment plans. This may include designing meal plans and recipes, personalizing exercise plans, and providing medication support. Our goal is to empower patients to make clinician-recommended lifestyle changes that help offset any inherited genetic risk factors.  Learn more about our health management program.
