5. One size doesn't fit all personalizing treatment
The old adage, "take two aspirin and call me in the morning," doesn't work as well as we might think. It turns out that one size doesn't fit all when it comes to drug response, and for some people, certain drugs might be more effective, not work at all, or even produce serious side effects. The growing body of pharmacogenomics research has helped us understand that, at least in part, genetics play a role in how well some drugs work for different people. The 23andMe Drug Response reports link customers' genetics to the way they might respond to certain drugs and medications. The results range from whether you're likely to benefit from a drug, need a different dose due to sensitivity, experience toxic or adverse effects, or even have increased risk for other conditions. 23andMe cautions that its Drug Response reports should not be used to independently establish, abolish, or adjust medical treatment and medications but should be discussed with your physician. Only a medical professional can determine whether a particular drug or dose is appropriate for you.
