DNA Methylation Bloodspot-Doctor's Data Kit

Note: This is a home collection test kit that will be mailed to you.



Fasting Required: No

Specimen: Bloodspot

Results: 14-21 Business Days

Special Instructions: 48 Hours before discontinue taking dietary supplements containing methionine, cysteine, and SAMe unless otherwise directed by your physician. Discuss with your healthcare provider if you are taking blood thinning medications or if you have a blood clotting disorder. Never discontinue prescription medications without first consulting your physician. The lancets and collection card provided are for one time use only. Do not collect from the fifth/little finger or on children younger than one year.

Limitations: Not suitable for children less than one year old.

Description:Identification of SNPs that influence health and disease risk may improve clinical success and allow patients to optimize health and wellness.

The DNA Methylation Pathway Profile allows clinicians to screen their patients for a variety of genetic changes (single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs) that may impact the function of important biochemical processes such as methionine metabolism, detoxification, hormone balance and Vitamin D function. The presence or absence of SNPs may modify disease risk. The risks may be reduced by lifestyle changes, and inefficient biochemical processes can be supported by diet and nutritional supplements to maximize the functions of metabolic pathways.
