theraSEEK™ Sequence Analysis for Functional Disorders
Next Generation Sequencing test focused on genes associated with metabolism, physiological function, and neurologic development are factors in functional symptoms and disease
- Metabolism and physiological functions (amino acids, carbohydrates/glucose, cell signaling, cofactors, metals, select drugs, extracellular matrix, fatty acid oxidation, glycosylation, heme, ion channels, lipids, lysosomes, neurotransmitters, organic acids, peroxisomes, purines/pyrimidines, transcription/translation, urea cycle);
- Metabolic pathways (antioxidant, biopterin, coenzyme Q10, folate, methionine, transsulfuration);
- Neurological development and function;
- Mitochondrial function (electron transport chain, mtDNA replication, morphology).
Indications for Testing - 2 or more of the following:
|Migraine headache||Neuropathy/sensory deficits|
||Autistic spectrum disorder with additional functional symptoms|
|Gastrointestinal conditions (dysmotility, intermittent diarrhea or constipation, abdominal pain, recurrent vomiting, nausea, GERD)||ADHD and other behavioral conditions|
|Fatigue/exercise intolerance||Abnormal movement (tics, tremor, dyskinesia, restless legs)|
|Autonomic dysfunction (dizziness, POTS, arrhythmias)||Sleep disturbance|
|Psychiatric / mood disorders (depression, anxiety, schizophrenia)|
