What is Diet & Exercise DNA testing?

If you’re finding that your body just doesn’t “want” to lose weight, the issue may be that you two just aren’t on the same page. Your genes may not like your diet and exercise choices. Your answers may lie in your DNA. The professionals at ARCpoint Labs of Columbia, SC will collect a saliva sample and, using this, test a set number of genes for specific variants that may affect your diet and exercise efforts.

Studies have shown that tendencies of certain genes comprising our genetic makeup can play a major role in maintaining a healthy body and employing a successful wellness regimen. They can even tell you what foods to consider eating and avoiding. Treat your body the way your genetics ask you to.

What We Test

The  genes we test for, which may tell the body how to process or absorb carbohydrates, fats, micro-nutrients, proteins and more, include the following:

  • FTO: Your genotype can indicate whether or not you feel full after you eat a meal, thus revealing the cause behind your tendency to overeat.
  • ADIPOQ: This gene is associated with adiponectin, which in decreased levels, impairs fat processing and increases the risk of obesity.
  • MC4R: A variant can lead to insulin resistance as well as an increased BMI and waist circumference.
  • TMEM18: This gene’s variants are associated with increased risk of obesity in adults and extreme obesity in children.
  • IRS1: This specific gene has proven to be related to insulin sensitivity and how carbohydrates affect the body.

DNA testing can unlock far more than these few secrets, and they can give you a head start on your health and wellness goals. By understanding what role these genes play in you or your client’s body, it’s possible to incorporate a diet and exercise regimen that is tailor-made to work hand-in-hand with an individual’s DNA.
