This panel identifies specific genetic variants that can influence the development of ADHD. It is a helpful tool in confirming an ADHD diagnosis.

The faces of ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD is widespread and is estimated to affect almost every tenth child of school age. Boys have ADHD about twice as often as girls. It can manifest itself in different ways. Patients are either mainly unconcentrated, predominantly hyperactive, or both unconcentrated and hyperactive. Depending on the severity of the disorder, ADHD can have a more or less strong influence on the daily lives of those affected and their fellow human beings.

ADHD Gene Panel Benefit


With the ADHD Gene Panel, we can determine the genetic risk of ADHD and know which drugs are appropriate for treatment.

Once the analysis is complete, we prepare a detailed evaluation in which we summarize all the results of our test in a Gene Book.

Thus the ADHD Gene Panel can make a valuable contribution to the diagnosis of already existing behavioral disorders and help to determine the correct treatment measures.

You’ll get:

  • Investigation of the five relevant genes
  • Assessment of the genetic risk for ADHD
  • Evaluation of the efficacy of 16 drugs based on the gene profile
  • Reliable analysis in our laboratory
  • Detailed report with all results

LifeScience Genetic Tests

Genetic tests analyze our genes and look for changes in them that may hinder us from being our healthiest selves. These changes are called mutations and are inherited from our parents, which we then pass on to our offspring.

Tests like these identify these genetic alterations because these can manifest the disease and therefore can be helpful in confirming the diagnosis. This can also influence and personalize the type of medical treatments you or your family may receive

Why should I take it?

You can take gene tests so that you can:

  • Learn your risk for a certain disease, particularly one that runs in your family (like cancer, diabetes) and what to do before you have symptoms
  • Find out if you, your child, or any other family member has a genetic condition
  • Know what you can do to lower your risk of having it, preventing a disease, or managing it if you already have the disease

Whether it yields positive or negative results, genetic tests are helpful. If you receive a negative result, it can provide relief, stop needless worrying, and help you be more proactive in managing your health. In some cases, it also eliminates the need for other unnecessary tests.

On the other hand, having a positive result can help you prevent the development of disease and monitor your well-being. It may also help you and your medical team focus on personalized treatment plans and medications that can optimize your health. For newborns, it identifies genetic disorders early on. This helps ensure that the child can get treatment as early as possible.
