Healthy Weight DNA Testing

Healthy Weight DNA Testing

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.

Healthy Weight DNA testing personalizes diet, nutrition and exercise with genetics to increase wellness. Understanding a person’s genetic propensity to specific diets, eating behaviors, nutritional needs, exercise activity, and various health conditions is important for true, long term success in weight management.
