Are you eating the right diet for your genes? Now you can find out. Newtown Nutrition is excited to announce the introduction of genetic testing, available in-office.
Nutrigenomics is the study of how food and diet interact with genes to increase the risk of chronic disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity. Now you can find out if your genes put you at risk for weight gain, or increase your sensitivity to sodium or put you at risk for chronic disease. Based on the results of your genetic test, a dietitian will be able to personalise a diet for you. It is no longer a one-size fits all approach to nutrition.
Newtown Nutrition is able to offer a range of genetic tests, including tests for appetite control, folate metabolism, caffeine, sodium, vitamin C, saturated fat, coeliac disease, lactose intolerance, inflammation and sports and exercise performance. Based on the results of these tests, a dietitian will be able to provide specific, DNA-based nutrition advice. Our dietitian Kate is the nutrigenomic expert and she will be able to lead you through the genetic-testing process.
