Making Genetic Testing More Clinically Valuable.

Abstract

The concepts discussed in this article-from the limitations of current assessment tools, to the emerging research on polygenic analyses, to my own thoughts about defining functional genetic categories-are all very relevant to the goal of improving the precision implementation of personalized lifestyle medicine for many complex chronic diseases. By using this lens of understanding the interaction between genes and lifestyle, many clinical studies demonstrating the effectiveness of lifestyle in improving health outcome in patients with chronic diseases can be identified.
