Has Anyone Had A Genetics Test Done For Yourself?

Has Anyone Had A Genetics Test Done For Yourself?

For ME..... I had a genetics test done and it showed me what medicines MY body metabolizes and what doesnt...We are all made differently and so is our ability to medicate for our specific body...

It is done by a Company named NRLBH, 1616 Eastlake Avenue, Suite 360,… read more

It proved that what I had told my doctors were true about when I said certain medications didn't work, like Vicodin and Hydrocodone! I suffered every side effect for 24 years... Peace of mind is a great feeling!

SMC, my family doctor, he never understood my conditions dealing with pain management. He too, didn't see the light for doing the test. I have had all 3 of my kids ( all adults except 1 who is almost an adult) test done now so they will always have to take to Dr appts when meds are often prescribed. My daughter I hope will have my grandsons done, but he is only 3 now. Hope this helps! Like I said, don't ask, as asnewerd above they work with you on cost, so that can't be an excuse anymore!, TELL them you want! If you suffer, maybe the meds aren't working, what have you got to lose?

My insurance, Medicare, and they did pay for the test. It was a simple swab of the mouth and the doctor sent the test and results were sent to me in less than a week. I hope well wishes and prayers for all. God Bless.. MW
