Personalized Precision Medicine Q & A

What is personalized precision medicine?

Genomic analysis is a detailed evaluation of your unique genetic information. Family history and genetics play a major role in determining your risk for common conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders.

An important component of genomic analysis is the identification of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNP's), which are common mutational variations that may be present in your genes and are passed from generation to generation. The presence of certain SNP's can have an important impact on your risk for developing age-related diseases.

For example, a SNP involving the Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene is relatively common, present in about 30 to 40 percent of all people, and can have an important impact on how well your body performs the very important metabolic process called "methylation". This can be reflected in an elevated homocysteine level in your blood, which is a very important indicator of your personal risk for developing cardiovascular disease and other age-related disorders. If this affects you, Dr. Erdman will recommend actionable strategies for dealing with this issue.

The genomic analysis helps Dr. Erdman make more informed decisions about maintaining and optimizing your overall health. Genomic analyses are commonly performed using a sample of your saliva or blood. The sample is sent off to a lab where it is used to produce a detailed report of your genetic information.

Dr. Erdman will use this information to help develop a personalized comprehensive health plan with actionable strategies designed to address your unique personal health risks.

What is body composition analysis?

Body composition analysis is a simple in-office test used to determine the percentages of fat, muscle, water, and bone in your body.

This evaluation gives a more detailed look at your body composition compared to measurements like BMI (body mass index). Body composition analysis can help you and Dr. Erdman make more informed decisions about your diet, nutrition, and weight management. It can also help track your progress with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and other therapeutic interventions.

What are the benefits of personalized medicine?

Dr. Erdman works very closely with his patients to develop comprehensive, personalized health plans tailored to address each individual patient's unique health issues and concerns.

Personalized medicine is not a replacement for but rather an extension of primary and preventive medicine, helping you minimize your health risks and develop actionable strategies for maintaining long-term health and vitality regardless of age.

The benefits of personalized medicine include:

  • Strong doctor-patient relationship
  • Shared decision-making
  • Comprehensive preventive medicine, screening and risk reduction strategies
  • Personalized diet and exercise plans

Personalized medicine allows you to access medical care centered around your needs and goals. Your medical evaluations are used to develop a personalized health plan catered to your specific health concerns and goals.

What are the components of a personalized anti-aging health plan?

  • Science-based medication and supplement recommendations
