Being overweight or obese is linked to many health conditions. Obesity leads to negative impacts on a person’s metabolic system, such as decreased levels of HDL cholesterol and elevated levels of LDL cholesterol, as well as elevated blood sugar and triglycerides. The adverse metabolic effects are precursors to metabolic syndrome, as well as health conditions such as coronary artery disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.
Your weight can be influenced by many genes. Our test includes genetic markers associated with metabolism, the tendency to regain weight after losing it, as well as a predisposition to obesity.
How you may respond to some foods can be linked to your genetics. We currently screen for genes related to caffeine, bitter and sweet taste, as well as gluten and lactose intolerance.
Eating behaviors can have as much effect on health as our diet. Some of our behaviors are learned over time and some are influenced by our genetics. Through the Caligenix report, we describe certain genetic markers that are associated with eating behaviors, and with this information, you can modify your lifestyle to help you achieve or maintain health and wellness.
Exercise has long been shown to provide many health benefits. Many studies have shown a link between genetics and exercise. Your genes can affect your chances of losing weight, having improved cholesterol levels, and other health bene ts in response to exercise. Caligenix tests for a number of genes related to exercise and optimal performance.
