Genetic Testing uncovers your predispositions to inherited diseases 

 

We  inherit obesity and other diseases through gene mutations. About 30,000 human genes play a role in your health. Unfortunately, most people don’t know about their own genetic risks to diseases until they become sick. This is however changing thanks to at home genetic tests like BioActify home DNA testing.

 

 

BioActify at home DNA testing is aiding new prevention possibilities.  

In your genetic data from BioActify, some information will show the definite outcome of your future health, while others will only show your increase risk of developing certain diseases. Since, the development of many diseases depends on the interplay between genes and the environment/lifestyle, you can use your genetic analysis from BioActify to help you take preventative measures for better health.

If you know your genetic predispositions to diseases,

you can adjust your lifestyle and environment to decrease your risks factors before the first symptoms of diseases appear.

In doing so, you might be able to prevent the development of diseases or get early medical help to better manage your health.

 

Your genetic makeup can’t be changed. But, testing your genes, knowing your genetic mutations, making lifestyle and environmental changes and having frequent disease screenings can help reduce your disease risk.

Minimize emotional stress and economic burden of not knowing what’s making you sick or what will make you sick if you keep eating it.

 

Benefits of testing your genes with BioActify DNA Test:

It helps you uncover

  • how foods you eat interact with your genes
  • what you are genetically predisposed to
  • Exploration of the root cause of your health issues
  • A deep dive into your nutrition and health

More info about some of the genes we test

– FTO gene and fat sensitivity: people who take in a lot of fat and carry the unfavorable gene variation of this gene have a BMI of about 2.4 points higher than people who take in a lot of fat and have the favorable gene variant. This is a difference of approx. 18 lbs!

– PPARG gene and influence on fat sensitivity: people with the unfavorable gene variant who had a particularly high fat intake through their food, had an average of 1.9 BMI points more than persons with the favorable gene variant who had a particularly high fat intake through the food. This is a 15 lbs difference!

– PPARG gene Influence on weight reduction with calorie reduction and exercise: people with the favorable genetic variation lost 4.9% more weight than people with the unfavorable genetic variations.

– ADRB3 gene Influence on weight reduction through exercise: People with the unfavorable gene variant, who exercise have a 2.98-fold higher risk (298%) of becoming overweight.

– ADRB3 gene Influence on exercise and calorie reduction: People with the unfavorable gene variant lost 1.6lbs less weight than people with the favorable gene variant.

– APOA5 gene Influence on weight reduction efficiency: People with the favorable gene variant reduced their BMI by 13.4%, while people with the unfavorable gene variant reduced their BMI by 0.4% with the same effort.

– APOA2 gene and fat sensitivity: People who take in a lot of fat and have the unfavorable gene variant have on average a 6.2% higher BMI than people who take in a lot of fat and carry the favorable gene variant. This is again a variation of about 14 lbs!
