Women’s Health and Genetics
Many factors affect an individual’s overall health and wellness, including nutrition, exercise, and body weight as well as predispositions to a number of health conditions. However, women face additional health circumstances and challenges such as pregnancy, menopause and other gynecological conditions. In order for a woman to achieve optimal health and wellness, it is important for her to understand how her unique genetic profile may be affecting how her body utilizes energy and nutrients, as well as how it responds to certain foods, diets, and exercise regiments. A woman’s genetic makeup can also provide with insights into common health conditions that she may predisposed to, as well as other information that may be helpful during a woman’s lifetime.
Clinical Implementation for Female Patients
A woman’s unique genetic profile, provided in the Healthy Woman DNA Insight test, empowers physicians with actionable information to help guide their patients with feasible weight management goals and to improve their overall health.
Healthy Woman DNA Insight® can be ordered from a licensed and registered physician or other qualified healthcare provider.
Once the physician has ordered the test, a Pathway Genomics sample kit will be sent for sample collection.
Pathway Genomics processes and analyzes the submitted sample in its CLIA certified and CAP accredited laboratory. Typically within two to three weeks, the patient’s personalized results will be available to the ordering physician. The results will then be released to the patient. Pathway Genomics has a team of genetic counselors available to ensure that both the patient and the physician understand the information in the report, and to answer additional questions. To contact a Pathway Genomics genetic counselor, please call client services department at +1 714-864-3730 or email pe@anti-fragilityhealth.
