Developmental Panel: Genetic Testing Providing a Personalized Approach

GX Sciences offers a Developmental Panel: a genetic test that allows doctors to better understand the biochemical processes of the individual with relative developmental challenges. Using the DNA test, doctors can follow their patient’s processes and discern their unique nuances. Gaining individualized and extensive data can make significant difference in possible protocols.


How Our Developmental Panel May Help

Aiding Biochemical Processes

Methylation plays a crucial role in supporting the immune system and supporting recovery of the nervous system, among other important genetic markers analyzed in our Developmental Panel. It also aids dopamine and serotonin function, functionality, and reproduction in the system. Proper methylation can bring many health benefits as it’s responsible for 200+ biochemical processes in the body. Genetic testing can help inform whether one has difficulty or may have difficulty converting folic acid into the bioactive form of folate which is methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) that the body requires. Genetic testing for autism can help determine whether one could benefit from more vitamin B12 and / or methylated folate. Promote more good days overall by determining if methylation protocols are needed due to a methylation deficiency.

Delivering Necessary Nutrition

Many of those with developmental disorders struggle to receive the necessary nutrients. Sensory disintegration can lead to sensitivity to certain textures of certain foods, prompting a picky eater. Gastrointestinal issues are also found among some, leaving them with nutritional issues until the GI tract issues are relieved. Especially with young children: it is critical that they receive proper nutrition to avoid further compromising systems in the body. Our Developmental Panel can help determine personalized nutritional protocols to help aid overall health like avoiding gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, yeast, or nuts or incorporating specific supplements.

Help Control What’s in Your Control with Developmental Panel

Developmental disorders affects individuals differently. With no two cases being the same, it’s imperative that protocols and therapies be personalized for children and adults. GX Science’s Developmental Panel can help those with developmental challenges or their caretakers gain a better understanding of their genetic makeup, promote good overall health, and avoid any foods or supplements that may hinder progress.
