FindWhy™ DNA Testing
FindWhy™ Genetic Testing for Weight Control looks at five genes that are known to have a significant impact on the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates and responsiveness to exercise. The genes in the Weight Control panel were selected following a very thorough and current review of research literature related to genes, exercise, obesity and nutrition. The genes (SNPs) tested are:
FTO Regulation of metabolism and satiety
MC4R Regulation of satiety and meal frequency
ADRB2-E27Q Sensitivity to carbohydrates and stress impact
FABP2-T55A Fat absorption and insulin regulation of sugar
SH2B1 Regulation of insulin and leptin systems
Testing is performed on the DNA collected from on cheek cells which are obtained by brushing the three swabs on the inside of the mouth.
