The Genetics

Studies show multiple genetic variants can significant influence a person’s body weight, and how they respond to specific diets and exercise plans.

VARIANTS TESTED:

  • MC4R – disrupts appetite suppression
  • NMB – associated with food disinhibition
  • FTO – influences energy intake, diet impact and satiety
  • SH2B1 – interrupts a satiety hormone signalling pathway
  • BDNF – influences exercise motivation
  • APOA2 – alters saturated fat metabolism
  • AMY1 – reduces the ability to digest starch
  • FABP2 – increases fatty acid uptake
  • ADIPOQ – disrupts normal glucose regulation
  • ADRB2 – affects weight loss in response to exercise
  • CLOCK – disrupts the normal circadian rhythm

Obesity is a worldwide problem that affects all ages and ethnicities. According to the World Health Organization, obesity affects 600 million adults (13% of the world’s adult population) and 41 million children under the age of five years.

Obesity increases the risk of multiple health problems, particularly cardiovascular issues, type 2 diabetes, liver disease, obstructive sleep apnea, cancer, asthma and osteoarthritis. Because of these health complications, obesity is associated with a reduced life expectancy (averaging 6 – 7 years lower than healthy weight individuals).

On top of lifestyle choices (e.g. poor diet and lack of exercise), obesity risk is also strongly influenced by a person’s genetic makeup. An understanding of your genetic variation can provide you with the tools you need to change your diet and lifestyle, to maintain a healthy weight.
