According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over one-third of U.S. adults are obese as defined as having a body mass index (BMI) above 30. Being at an unhealthy weight increases an individual’s risk of developing many serious health conditions, including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer. Fortunately, obesity is reversible with close monitoring of nutrition and appropriate exercise. In addition, an individual’s genetic makeup can influence how his/her body utilizes energy and nutrients, responds to exercise and medications, and affects the risk of developing certain health conditions.
How our genetic test can help
Healthy Weight DNA Insight® is a comprehensive health and wellness genetic test that provides physicians with a unique combination of information regarding nutrigenetics, medication response, and a number of common health conditions. Using a proprietary algorithm, this test also provides physicians with a genetically-matched diet allowing them to make specific recommendations to their patients to help them achieve or maintain a healthy weight.
Clinical Implementation for Patients
A patient’s unique genetic profile provided in the Healthy Weight DNA Insight® test empowers physicians with actionable information to guide their patients with weight management goals and to improve their overall health.
