Why do I have to go to my healthcare practitioner for Medication results?
DNA tests in Australian must be approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). This helps to protect consumers from tests which are unreliable or not properly accredited.
The TGA requires that certain tests, like our myDNA Medication tests, are provided to a healthcare professional (AHPRA registered) and not direct to consumers to ensure that they are interpreted correctly. Further, it is important that your doctor is aware of your results particularly if you are currently on medications which may be affected by them.
These should be discussed with a doctor and/or myDNA accredited pharmacist. Your health professionals are best placed to make any final recommendations about your medication and can ensure that any prescription adjustments suggested by the myDNA medication report are considered together with your medical history.
We are aware that pharmacogenomics testing is a relatively new area in healthcare and health professionals are able to contact the myDNA clinical team directly if they have any questions or would like to discuss your myDNA report further.
I've seen my GP, how can I access my medication report?
After your consultation with your healthcare professional, they should release your results, which provides you with a copy in your online portal for you to access at any time.
If your doctor hasn’t released your report could you please provide:
Doctor or Pharmacists name
Their practice or Pharmacy
The email address you registered with
After we have received this information we will contact them to action the process.
