Statins are a category of drugs prescribed to decrease blood cholesterol levels. They block the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, responsible for the synthesis of cholesterol which, if present in large amounts in the blood, increases the risk of suffering from heart problems. In the Genetic Test PersonGene the four main categories of statins on the market ( Atorvastatin, Rosuvastatin, Pravastatin and Simvastatin) are taken into consideration and for each one their genetic predisposition is indicated for the outcome (how well that specific drug works) and for the manifestation of side effects. In some cases it is also possible to predict the best dosage based on one’s genetic heritage. This test therefore allows you to choose, based on your DNA, the most suitable therapeutic molecule. Through this genetic test it will be possible to have an indication of which of the four statins is best suited for your body.
