Which patients can benefit from the Methylation Panel?
The Methylation Panel can offer insight in patients with:
- questionable detoxification (patients who take hormone therapy, drink alcohol, or have toxin exposure)
- cancer risk
- cardiovascular disease (non-coronary atherosclerosis, hypertension, coronary artery disease)
- psychiatric and mood disorders (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression)
- neurologic disorders (Parkinson's disease, cognitive decline)
- chronic fatigue
How are the results of the Methylation Panel helpful?
The Methylation Panel can uncover needs for nutritional support such as amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Knowing this can help guide dietary and nutraceutical treatment plans. Additionally, knowing genetic predispositions can help focus supplementation to override potential methylation defects.
