Pathway Fit®

Pathway Fit® analyzes over 75 genetic markers known to impact metabolism, exercise and energy use within the human body. Through the examination of these genetic markers, which are expressed in various organs such as the brain, stomach, gut, muscle, pancreas, as well as directly in fat tissue, we are able to gain an insight into how a person’s body processes sugars, fats, and nutrients and vitamins. What’s more, our report includes detailed analysis on how a patient’s body responds to exercise and performance, and provides strategies to help a patient reach an optimal potential to maintain a healthy weight based on that specific patient’s genetics.

Pathway Fit® may help patients with:

Pathway Fit® may help physicians with:

  • Improved clinical outcomes
  • Better treatment options for weight loss and would like to have simple, clear, proven plans
  • Improved performance or overall health of patients

The NYSDOH has reviewed this test for technical and clinical validity. The clinical merit is unknown. The results of this test provide educational information to be used between the patient and his or her physician, as an aid to patient management and health.
