What does the Livewello Gene App do?

  2 years, 11 months ago

The Raw Data you receive from 23andMe can be translated by Livewello for a 1-time fee of $19:95. LiveWello is unique because it gives users much more than just a 900 SNP Gene report: LiveWello will give you your report for 600,000 SNPs, AND attaches 11 resources for learning to each Gene.

Updates are FREE for Livewello users: Free updates are crucial as it allows users get their results for new SNPs when 23andMe adds new SNPS to your raw data during their Chip updates. It is also crucial for when new research is added to information about ... ..more

You have been diagnosed with a chronic health condition. Your genetic information will help you determine which genes or biochemical pathways were altered to result in that health condition. Getting to the root cause, will help facilitate recovery by tailoring any treatment plans and lifestyle changes your Doctor recommends specifically to your body.

Several members of your family live with one or several chronic health issues. Genetic information will help your family uncover the inherited Gene sequence patterns that contribute to the chronic illnesses plaguing them.

You plan to have a baby: Research is implicating certain genetic mutations in a ... ..more

Physicians don't always know what to do with your genetic information because epigenetics and pharmacogenomics are relatively new fields, and everyone is trying to catch up.  Also Traditional/Allopathic physicians have very limited time in which to  go over all the information that you hand over to them, so the best way to present them with new information like this, is to share a link to your Report and make sure you tell them to read the associated medical references that come with your App. For instance, every Gene in the LiveWello Gene App report is directly linked to ... ..more

What is pharmacogenomics?

  3 years, 10 months ago

Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genes affect a person’s response to drugs. This relatively new field combines pharmacology (the science of drugs) and genomics (the study of genes and their functions) to develop effective, safe medications and doses that will be tailored to a person’s genetic makeup.

Many drugs that are currently available are “one size fits all,” but they don’t work the same way for everyone. It can be difficult to predict who will benefit from a medication, who will not respond at all, and who will experience negative side effects (called adverse drug reactions ... ..more

The human genome is a string of over 3 billion chemical letters that spell out every inherited trait. Although the letters of all our genomes are virtually identical and have little variation, more and more frequently, nature gets a letter wrong, similar to a typo. Scientists call these genetic misspellings SNPs (Pronounced: snips), or single nucleotide polymorphisms, which occur as variations at a single site in DNA. In fact, a SNP is the most frequent variation in the human genome with about 5-10 million of them. Although not all of these disparities contribute to disease. Scientists are now using them ... ..more
