Weight management is harder than rocket science unless you know the genes that can help you control your appetite and metabolism. With this knowledge, you can adjust your food choices and the type of exercise you do to give you better control of your body weight and percent of fat and muscle.
Our test takes the guesswork out of your food choices and exercise routine by going straight to your genetics for the answers. This Weight Management Health Panel analyzes genes involved with weight gain, fat percentage and fat distribution, food cravings, blood sugar regulation, and the type of exercise you should focus on for maintaining a lean strong physique.
This panel is ideal for individuals with food cravings and frequent over-eating, or those who have poor results with dieting. If you suffer from persistent weight gain, have a lot of body fat, or tend to gain weight in the stomach, hips and thighs you will obtain important information from this panel. Specific genes of focus include:.
- FTO gene mutation
- MC4R gene
- FABP2 mutation
- ADRB2 mutation
Our partners at Kashi Clinical Laboratories use the latest in quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction instrumentation with a high degree of sensitivity for detecting gene snips accurately.
Scientific rigor matters
SNP’s are only included in our panels when peer reviewed studies show there is a clear connection with treatment decision making, the studies are relevant across a range of population types, clinical intervention is indicated, and that nutritional or other lifestyle choices can affect the regulation of gene expression.
