How to understand your hair loss report

Share

One of the most exciting parts of the Roots by Genetic Arts process is receiving your genetic data and treatment efficacy results. To better help you understand the report, and what to expect we’ve put together a brief overview:

The report is broken up into 4 sections:

1) Patient identification data
2) Recommendation of the most suitable drugs and supplements
3) Complete data
4) Methodology

1) Patient identification data

The patient identification sections will detail information

2) Recommendation of the most suitable drugs and supplements

Within this section, we’ll show on a color scale which compounds the algorithm recommends the most. The transition from white to dark green indicates drugs from least recommended to most recommended. Medications blocked due to intolerances or contraindications are shown in red.

Our board certified dermatologist will review this section, in addition to your medical history and lifestyle questionnaire data to find the optimal combination of ingredients best suited for you.
Once they review your report, they’ll create a personalized subscription and you’ll receive an email when it’s ready to review.

One thing to note, not all ingredients may be used in your final prescription. Our experts work closely with our compound pharmacy to make sure every topical we product is the highest quality, so we make sure when pulling from your recommendations we only choose the combinations of ingredients that work well together, and are stable when mixed.

3) Complete data

This section showcases more details about the specific genetic activity that informs the drug and supplement recommendations. You’ll see the 7 pathways and their associated gene activity: Androgenic Effect, Prostaglandin Metabolism, Collagen Synthesis, Inflammation, Vasodilation And Blood Circulation, Vitamins And Minerals Metabolism and Insulin-Like Growth Factor Metabolism.

4) Methodology

This section give you a general overview of how your genetic test was conducted,
