You are unique

Your DNA is the instruction manual for every cell in your body. It influences how you look and how your body works.

The myDNA test can find variations in the genes that – along with other medical factors such as kidney failure, liver function and bodyweight – affect how your body processes certain medications.

Our interpretation of these results can help guide your doctor in choosing the best treatment for you.

70% of people who take a myDNA test have a finding that predicts how their genes could affect the way they respond to many medications.


(Based on an analysis of approximately 4750 myDNA tests. Other non-genetic factors can also affect medication response.)

Research indicates that up to one third of people may process certain types of medications too quickly, which can increase the risk of treatment failure or reduced efficacy


Statistics for CYP2D6 and CYP2C19 genotypes are quoted in the CPIC Guidelines Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (August 2015) and are confirmed by the analysis of the results of approximately 4,750 myDNA tests - Hicks J et al (2015)

Patient story

Lee suffered with chronic back pain following a work accident and had endured sleep difficulties for almost a decade. “It didn’t matter what medication I took, just about everything had no effect,” he says.

After his doctor recommended a myDNA test, the results showed that Lee was a reduced metaboliser of many drugs, including the analgesic Tramal (tramadol), and was likely to see a reduction in pain relief as a result. “I was taking up to 12 painkillers a day and the cost was going through the roof,” he said.

He was switched from tramadol and advised to take ibuprofen, which is not affected by his genetic variation, more frequently. “Within a couple of months I was feeling much better,” he adds.
