Pain Medications DNA Test - What’s Included:
Information about your genetic variables relating to pain medications and analgesics which you can share with your physicians for personalized care
Detailed breakdowns of each core aspect of your genetic markers and real recommendations for helping your physician select the best pain treatments.
A one-page summary and breakdown of your genetic information regarding pain relief medications
Gain insights on how our genetic testing indicates your body’s response to 13 pain relief medications. We provide an in-depth analysis and healthy recommendations according to your genetics so that you and your physician can quickly determine the best treatment plan for you.
Learn how you metabolize certain drugs, which medications may cause unpleasant or even life-threatening side effects, and appropriate dosage amounts.
In accordance with CLIA and CAP regulations, all of our genetic tests are Laboratory Developed Tests (LDT’s). In addition, each ordered test is prior authorized by a licensed physician, and the test results and report are reviewed by a licensed physician before returning to the consumer.
This product will tell you:
How your body metabolizes a pain drug, relative risks of taking the drug, and the appropriate dosages for you
Recommendations on pain medications and dosages that give you severe side effects
Options so you could get to the right choice sooner
In genetics, some research can be described as stronger than others. We only report on scientifically verified genetic information, unlike some companies. With that in mind, we provide a rating system for all our results to ensure you know if the science on that particular finding is extremely strong or just preliminary.
Saliva has small cells in it called lymphocytes, this is what we isolate the DNA from.
OmeHealth genetic reports are scientifically accurate. Our genomics laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), accredited in accordance with the U.S Health and Human Services’ Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA), and licensed by the California Department of Public Health, thereby assuring you of high quality results. Unlike other laboratories that outsource the actual performance of the laboratory tests and only handle the interpretations and the reporting of the results, we handle the testing, interpretation and reporting from beginning to end. This allows Ome Wellness better control over the research, testing, pricing and security.
Insurance coverage is dependent on the type of test ordered, and who the insurance carrier is (or medicare). We can help with this.

Your body’s response is based on many factors including genetics, medication efficacy, side effects, and more. Almost 100% of all drugs are eventually metabolized in the liver. There is very good evidence showing that certain genes in the liver are responsible for this metabolism, and other genes are responsible for drug transport into the cell. Our test reports on many of these genes and how everyone metabolizes and transports differently.
A DNA test can help your clinician decide which medication will work best based on your genetic makeup and help you to know your body’s response, dosage, and side effects according to your DNA.
You should schedule a consultation with your doctor to go over your OmePainMeds report. The doctor will use the report to prescribe you with pain medication that will effectively work for you.
Yes, because there are other factors at play but your DNA gene will not change.
The top 3 factors to consider are rate of metabolism based on DNA, rate of drug transport into the cell, and correct drug dosage based on age, ethnicity, gender, and weight.
In general, yes. Most of the issue with generalized pain is related to how your nerves transmit pain information, and how certain genes and proteins are responsible for this. OmePainMeds DNA test tells you the pain medication efficacy based on your genetics.
Yes, all types of pain from stomach to headache to arthritis. This DNA test discovers how your genes respond to pain medication and how efficacious the pain management medication is.
Yes, this genetic testing will inform you how your DNA responds to any substance for your pain management. Please check if the drug ingredients in the topical medicine are reported on in the test.
To ensure the highest standards of scientific validity and integrity, we process all samples at our clinical-grade laboratory and do not outsource any aspect of our testing. We also do not report on an genes/data that hasn’t been confirmed in multiple human clinical trials and peer-reviewed publications

“My approach with patients is more of a team approach. I tell them I’m here to encourage and empower them, give them the knowledge they need but the decision has to be theirs. Genetic testing fits into that process 100% because it’s precision medicine. So what’s right for one patient is not right for somebody else. not only in their lifestyle but also in their genetic makeup. You explain that to a patient, you empower them. Now they understand their illnesses, and they can make those changes and also affect their family and their children. So I think genetic testing is crucial in the way I see medicine and the art of healing.”

“I use OmePainMeds a lot because I think, for me, dealing with patients who are so pharmaceutically geared, it’s important for them to know how destructive it can be. I had a patient who was addicted to opiates for over 20 yrs. I did the testing and it showed how destructive basically it was in terms of the metabolization in his body, so that was more of an impetus for him to go and try the medical cannabis and really get off of it. It was a very heart-wrenching process to watch him go through because you know people die from opioid withdrawal, but I really supervised him and I think with the labs and the results from the test, he was just more convinced.”
