myDNA Testing

Our pharmacists have been accredited to administer the insightful myDNA medication test. This is a pharmacogenomics (PGx) test, which is the study of how genetic factors influence the way a person responds to medications. Depending on their genes, people vary in how quickly they clear medications from their body, and this can influence how well a medication works and the risk of side effects.

The myDNA test can:

  • Identify what medicines are best suited to your body
  • Reduce the risk of side effects
  • Save money by avoiding ineffective medications
  • Help determine the optimal dosage of a particular medicine
  • Identify what particular diet & exercise approaches would be best suited to your body

The myDNA test is performed by a simple cheek swab, which is then sent to a lab. Our pharmacists can evaluate your results and help formulate a personalised healthcare plan based. The results can also be shared with your healthcare professinoals.
