What is nutrigenomics?

Nutrigenomics is a fascinating, up-and-coming field that uses genetic testing to determine the correlation between genes, nutrition, and health. This information is used to help pinpoint the ideal diet for each individual. Nutrigenomics is used to learn more about how genes and diet together may affect a person’s health and risk of developing diseases.

Is nutrigenomic testing right for you?

Nutrigenomics can shed light on issues that a simple health history canโ€™t. This includes everything from a tendency of heart disease to why youโ€™re not losing weight when youโ€™ve tried everything. Genomic testing truly is useful for anyone wanting to be proactive about their health. Examples of genetic related disorders that improve with nutritional correction are obesity, coronary heart disease (CHD), hypertension and diabetes mellitus type 1.

Can Nutrigenomics or a DNA based diet help you lose weight?

If you’ve tried to lose weight using all means available and still hit a wall, or if you just can’t match the right nutrition plan to achieve your weight goals, DNA tests will help reveal why.ย 

Every dietary intervention is a hit and trial first, for example elimination diets. We check for what might work for your body and then go on to increase or decrease the portion/ change the food type.ย 

Now, gene variants might predict that your body wouldnโ€™t benefit from a vegan diet or wouldnโ€™t adapt well to a keto diet due to genomic tendencies for fat metabolism. Hence, Genomic testing can help explain why situations exist for a patient, such as which style of eating might suit them best, thus getting resolved faster.ย 

Can it be the future of how you eat?

When we say โ€˜Everyoneโ€™s body is different ” it is true down to the genetic level.ย  Itโ€™s long been clear that we donโ€™t all respond the same way to the same dietary interventions. Some people do really well on a higher fat diet. Others develop high triglycerides or cholesterol on the same diet. Some people lose more weight when they reduce carbs. Others lose more weight when they increase complex carbs and reduce fat.ย 

Nutrigenomics could help people overcome health obstacles other approaches canโ€™t. The more personalized our approach, the better the outcome. If these differences are genetic, we could skip some of the trial-and-error and zero in on the best approach for each unique individual based on their DNA.

How does it help PCOS women?

Genes specific to estrogen are tested to verify if the production is increased or moderate. Such individuals can then be put on a better detoxification diet to eliminate the overactive estrogen metabolites from the body. This variation is associated with both PCOS and breast cancer risk. It helps maintain proper hormonal balance in the body as well.

How does it address Fertility?

Mutations in the MTHFR genes may result in to Hyperhomocysteinemia causing, neural tube defects,

infertility, recurrent pregnancy losses in females. This is also tested in our panels. Another example is Anovulatory cycles which are menstrual cycles where no ovulation occurs. 70% of anovulatory infertility is related to PCOS. Hence addressing PCOS and its symptoms using a good diet and lifestyle is greatly needed for increased fertility in women.
