FOX 9, a TV station covering the Twin Cities, visited OneOme’s office in Minneapolis to learn how genetic testing is being used to determine which medications may be best for an individual. By having this genetic information when prescribing medications, doctors may be able to prescribe more effective medications with fewer side effects.
While at OneOme’s office, FOX 9 met Rachael Drazan-Malmberg, a 32-year-old former Minnesota Golden Gopher hockey player and member of the world champion USA Hockey team. Last year, Rachael was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer that had spread to her brain and lymph nodes in her chest. After struggling with medication side effects, Rachael found the RightMed test. Watch the segment below or read the story to learn how pharmacogenomic testing works and how it helped Rachael.
The RightMed test covers hundreds of medications used to treat many medical conditions, including depression, anxiety, pain, nausea/vomiting, cardiovascular disease, and much more.
