The way we eat, how our bodies process foods, and our overall health are impacted by our genetics. Scientific studies have shown that the consumption of particular nutrients may turn certain genes on or off. Diet results are calculated to help select the best diet for you.
Eating behaviors can have as much effect on health as our diet. Some of our behaviors are influenced by our genetics. We describe certain genetic markers that are associated with eating behaviors, such as excessive snacking and difficulty feeling full. With this information, you and your physician can modify your lifestyle to achieve ultimate wellness.
Your genetics may impact how your body responds to some foods. We report on genetic markers associated with caffeine metabolism, bitter and sweet taste sensitivity, as well as lactose intolerance and alcohol flush.
Exercise has long been shown to provide many health benefits. Your genes can affect how you respond to exercise – your chances of losing weight, improving your cholesterol levels, and other health benefits.
Your Body and Weight
Your weight can be influenced by many genes. Genetic markers associated with metabolism, the tendency to regain weight after losing weight, as well as predisposition for obesity.
Metabolic Health Factors
Good metabolic health can prevent serious health conditions. Lab work will determine your likelihood for having decreased HDL (good) cholesterol levels, as well as elevated LDL (bad) cholesterol, blood sugar and triglyceride levels. All of these are indicators of adverse metabolic health, which are precursors to various health conditions, including coronary artery disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.
