Adverse drug reaction is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. Are your employees sick or sluggish because of their medications? We help their doctors help them. Anyone taking more than one prescription drug at the same time is in danger.
In the U.S. 125,000 people die every year from adverse drug reactions. In addition, 2 million are hospitalized and many have lifelong issues. This is due to taking a medication that doesn’t suit your body’s genetic profile.
A very simple genetic test to determine if your medications are making you sick has been available for 14 years. Major clinics like Mayo, Vanderbilt, Duke, and Stanford have incorporated this test into their procedures. In May 2011 St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital announced that every patient entering their hospital will have the test performed.
The test is a simple cotton swab cheek swab which is then sent to a world-class lab. Within a few days, your doctor gets a report that clearly shows what medications you can safely take and what medications are making you sick. Many insurance companies, Medicaid and Medicare will pay for this test.
A father shares the following story about his daughter.
“My daughter suffered for 15 years with medications that caused depression and changed her personality. After discovering this genetic test, she was given this very simple procedure. The results came back to the doctor and showed that all the medications she had been on were all the wrong ones. In fact, her doctor was surprised she was still alive. Needless to say, the doctor has corrected the medications and she is like another person today.”
