Genetic testing is a medical process for screening your genetic makeup for specific markers and genes that provide details about your health. The tests can show your risk of developing medical conditions like cancer.
The results can also predict how you’ll respond to specific medications. Dr. Jehangir also offers genetic testing to identify the best diet and exercise regimes to help you lose weight and reach optimal health and wellness.
When you and Dr. Jehangir have a detailed understanding of your genetic makeup and your potential health risks, you can work together to change your diet, exercise, and other lifestyle habits to optimize your health and reduce the external and environmental factors that can contribute to conditions like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and more.
