Prevention and early detection of illnesses
Cardiovascular diseases, obesity, intolerances to foods and certain autoimmune disorders are influenced both by genetic factors as well as by diet and lifestyle. Nutripass gene testing can help you adjust your diet to suit you. The test results give you valuable insights and tips on prevention.
|Shed light on intolerance to foods (Nutripass)|
|The way the body reacts to specific foods depends on our individual genetic makeup. For example, one person may be lactose intolerant, while another may have trouble digesting gluten. If you have certain genetic variations, some dietary habits may increase the risk of developing specific illnesses. It is therefore vital to know about your genetic disposition so you can adjust how you eat.|
|Limits of the test|
The development of many common conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, obesity and some autoimmune disorders is influenced by genes and lifestyle (e.g. diet). Nutripass gene testing can provide advice on lifestyle changes, but cannot completely exclude the possibility of developing an illness. The results need to be interpreted by the responsible medical personnel, who factor in all relevant clinical and pathological data and laboratory analyses.
|Genetic factors that influence intolerance to foods are clinically relevant. This has been proven several times in scientific literature.|
