The next BIG step in medical practice
Please note that we are closed for testing currently but are open for telephone enquiries.
I have always been disappointed with how difficult it is to detect a liability to cancer (especially breast, prostate, and colon cancer), so the availability of genetic testing is a welcome advance.
We now have tests to help determine who is liable to cancer, and who is not. We have so far done a few tests on those interested in knowing their optimum diet, exercise, and lifestyle regime, as predicted by their personal DNA profile.
The cost for two attendances are as follows:
Health & Fitness genes - £500
Breast Cancer screening - £800
Hereditary Cancer screening - £1,000
Drug suitability (pharmacological) - £1,000
Because your genes do not change, these tests should only need to be done once (unless future research reveals other genes that might prove more significance). All that is required to do the tests is a mouth swab, after which you will be seen again in order to discuss the results.
We are also doing genetic tests for medication matching - which drugs are most suitable for which patients. This will be important for those unhappy with their medication. For those too young to have developed 'furring' of the arteries, when there is a family history of heart disease, we have a separate genetic testing package to define heart disease liability (includes rarer heart diseases).
If you are interested in any such testing please telephone me for more detail.
