Blood Testing and Genetics

Ep 91
In this episode of ReInvent healthcare, I dive deep into more comprehensive blood testing and how to combine that with genetic testing. I also share how essential it is to personalize care and use a holistic approach based on genetics, appropriate testing, and a comprehensive health history, and lifestyle to effectively get a clear picture of the health of our clients.


The Importance of Comprehensive Blood Testing
There is a significance of more extensive blood testing beyond what is traditionally done in medicine. Standard tests often do not provide a complete picture of a person’s health, and a more comprehensive set of blood tests can help identify various risk factors and imbalances of our clients in order to help them better.

Testing Before a Diagnosis
Doctors should not wait until someone is diagnosed with a disease before conducting certain tests. Proactive testing is important to identify clients at risk of developing health issues, before they have received a formal diagnosis. 

Genetics in Blood Testing
There is a synergy between genetics and blood testing. Genetic markers can guide which blood tests are most appropriate for our clients and the results of blood tests can provide insights into a person’s genetic predispositions, helping us as healthcare professionals tailor our recommendations and interventions accordingly.
