Unique issues such as pregnancy and menopause are issues requiring physicians to educate patients and develop customized treatment plans to increase positive outcomes and quality of life for their patients. Women can have a healthy pregnancy by getting early and regular prenatal care, and quantitative drug testing plays an integral part in ensuring the overall health of expectant and future mothers.
Although women and men also have many of the same health problems, women can be affected differently. For example, women are more likely to show signs of depression and anxiety than men and seek treatment options from physicians to address their issues.
Comprehensive drug testing programs provide physicians a clear picture by reporting the presence of all drugs in the system, allowing the physician to address drug misuse immediately and/or address adjustments to treatment options quickly if necessary.
