Guidance on the Use of Medication for the "Three Highs"
The "three highs" refer to hypertension, hyperglycemia, and hyperlipemia, and are common among the elderly.
According to data provided in the Health Care Forecast 2020 report, the number of people with the three highs in our country has reached 350 million, with nearly 300 million people suffering from hypertension and more than 100 million people suffering from hyperlipemia and hyperglycemia.
(1) What are the dangers of using medication?
Patients with "three highs" need to take long-term medication to control their indicators. In terms of clinical medication, due to individual differences, the same medication for the same condition may have completely different results for different patients. This can lead to unsatisfactory results, recurrence and deterioration of the disease, and even serious adverse reactions. Patients may experience a painful drug selection process.
One patient described the experience of taking antihypertensive drugs for a long time: after taking the first antihypertensive drug, he was full of energy and could not sleep all night; after taking the second, he had a dry cough; after switching to the third, he became dizzy; after switching to the fourth, he became incontinent. The cost of trial and error is too high for an elderly person who is ill!
(2) How dangerous is it to use medication inappropriately?
According to the WHO (World Health Organisation), one-third of all deaths worldwide are due to the irrational use of drugs rather than to the natural disease itself. This is because the absorption, effectiveness, and excretion of drugs in the body are genetically controlled and genetic variability can lead to differences in drug efficacy and toxic side effects.
(3) How do you achieve precision medication?
Genetic testing can make it possible. Genetic testing of patients to identify drug sensitivity genes allows for accurate typing and medication guidance. Genetic testing for this is now very common!
(4) Detection and sampling method and process
The genetic sample collection method developed by our company - is the integrated saliva sampling and detection method, this method is more convenient and fast and realizes non-invasive collection, and the detection effect is the same as that of extracting oral mucosa.
The genetic sample collection process is as follows:
Step 1: Rinse with clean water 30 minutes before sampling Oral, clear foreign body.
Step 2: Spit saliva into the sampling tube, Reach Mark Line (2ML).
Step 3: Unscrew the funnel, and the preservation solution, and Remove the funnel after the saliva is mixed.
Step 4: Keep the tube upright and save, Unscrew the cap at the end of the tube.
Step 5: Use the cap to seal the collected sample.
Step 6: Shake up and down to make the preservation solution, Fully fused with saliva.
(5) How to check the report?
The report can be accessed on your mobile phone and will give you relevant medication instructions, such as advice on changing medication, increasing the dose, decreasing the dose, etc. The report can be shown to your doctor as an important medication reference.
