For medicines to work, your body needs to metabolize them correctly (change them into a form your body can use). Certain variations in your DNA can cause these medicines to work very slowly. For example, in cases where you need pain relief and your body breaks down codeine slowly, you will not get the relief you need in time, or at all.
Other times, variations in your DNA can cause medicines to be used very quickly. In our pain medicine example, some children have overdosed on the ‘normal’ dosage of codeine because the medicine worked too fast!
The Kailos test tells you which medicines will work the best for you and which ones will not.
