Functional Genetic Testing

Functional Genetic Testing | Baseline Genetic Testing | MTHFR Pathways

Through the Impact Your Genetics program, Dr. Tetlow interprets your raw genetic data and makes it an essential aspect of your treatment plan.

In addition to identifying genetic vulnerabilities that stay with you for lifeDr. Tetlow, through Impact Your Genetics program, offers functional genetic testing—whose results change as you change your lifestyle.

Genes don’t change, but the proteins manufactured from on our genetic material do. Moment to moment and day to day choices profoundly impact health and well-being through affecting gene expression.

Changes in gene expression can be measured through our body shape, how we age, the stability of our mood, our blood sugar levels, whether we develop common family conditions, how we handle environmental toxins, etc.

Monitoring your genes for powerful prevention.

Dr. Tetlow monitors these changes upstream in powerfully preventive ways through functional genetic testing. She provides you with individualized supplement recommendations to naturally and supportively affect gene expression, as well as personalized lifestyle recommendations based on your health goals.

Genetic Testing

Baseline genetic testing through 23andme provides Dr. Tetlow with your raw genetic material for interpretation (test kits are $199). These results include all methylation or MTHFR pathways and reveal your genetic blue print that does not change with time.

Dr. Tetlow and the PIM team use highly specialized genetic  software including MethylGenetics ,StrataGene, and others, to analyze your raw genetic data. This is included in the cost of your appointment.

These test results do change over time and include:

  • Methylation Pathway Test (gauge your progress!)
  • Methylation Plasma Profile
  • Methyl Detox Testing
  • DNA Oxidative Damage Testing
  • Organic Acids Test
  • Urine Amino Acids Test
  • CardioGenomic Plus Profile
  • EstroGenomic Profile
  • ImmunoGenomic Profile
  • NeuroGenomic Profile
  • ApoE4 Testing
  • Telomere Testing
  • Vitamin D (absorption, conversion and cellular transport) Gene Testing
