Medcheck

Medcheck gives you insights into your responsiveness to different medications and the likelihood of side effects and treatment failure.

Medcheck gives insight into how a patient metabolizes, transports and binds specific drugs, which in turn allows physicians to prescribe those medications that are most likely to prove effective whilst minimising side effects.

Such a personalised approach to medicine has the power to produce better results, particularly for individuals whose genetic profile puts them at risk of experiencing either treatment failure or an adverse reaction from a given drug.

Ideal for:

The Medcheck test is suitable for anyone on medication* or planning to start a new medication*. The Medcheck test is also suitable for anyone experiencing side-effects to their medication* or not responding to their medication*, or where their prescribing doctor is constantly having to adjust the dose of the medication* outside of the recommended range.

*It is important to confirm that the medication you are questioning is included in the Medcheck report as this test does not report on all medication, but rather only medication for which there is sufficient scientific evidence linking the metabolism of the medication to a genetic variant.

The benefits of the Medcheck pharmacogenetics test include:

  • Improving drug efficacy
  • Decreasing length of treatment time
  • Minimising adverse side effects
  • Reducing money spent on ineffective medications or time in hospital
