The body and weight management test aims to analyse your genetic profile in relation to weight gain and weight loss. The test will give you an insight into how your body responds to dietary intake and dietary habits.
The test will uncover your body’s biological responses in relation to Eating Behaviour and Blood Sugar sensitivity and metabolism.
High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is known as the ‘good’ cholesterol as it removes excess and bad cholesterol from the blood. This test determines your HDL cholesterol levels.
Genes Tested: ABCA1, ANGPTL4, CETP, FADS1, GALNT2, HNF4A, KCTD10, LCAT, LIPC, LIPG, LPL, PLTP, TTC39B, ZNF259
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is known as ‘bad’ cholesterol as they transport cholesterol to tissues and cells. This test would determine your LDL cholesterol levels.
Genes tested: LDLR, MAFB, NCAN, ABCG8, APOB, CELSR2, HMGCR, HNF1A and Intergenic
Triglycerides are made up of unsaturated and saturated fatty acids. When we eat foods containing triglycerides, they are absorbed and processed by the liver. This test will determine your triglyceride levels.
Genes tested: ANGPTL3, APOB, FADS1, GCKR, LPL, MLXIPL, NCAN, PLTP, TRIB1, XKR6 and ZNF259
Fat regulation ensures that fat is broken down efficiently, which could otherwise lead to dyslipidaemia (altered lipid levels). This test will determine your sensitivity to fat intake.
Cholesterol and Gene X
Gene X has protective effects towards cardiac health. Carriers of Gene X will experience will have a 34% reduction in their risk of coronary artery disease, lower LDL and higher HDL levels. This test would determine if you possess a copy of this gene and its associated health benefits.
Gene tested: ASGR1
Milk and dairy products contain a natural sugar called lactose, which is broken down by a protein called lactase in the small intestine. This test will determine your ability to produce lactase and your tolerance to lactose.
Gene Tested: MCM6
Gluten is a protein found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye. Coeliac disease occurs when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy small intestine cells when gluten is consumed. This test will determine your tolerance to gluten and your chances for developing coeliac disease.
Gene tested: HLA
Caffeine is a natural substance found in coffee beans, tea and carbonated drinks. Caffeine intake is associated with slowing down the heart rate of carbohydrate store depletion and thus energy conservation over long periods of training. This test will determine the rate at which your body degrades caffeine.
Excessive long-term alcohol consumption has been linked to developing cardiac conditions such as high blood pressure and will negatively impact an individual’s training regime. Your genetics play an important role in determining how quickly you can break down alcohol and the likelihood of experiencing any side effects.
Gene tested: ADH1B
Folate, also known as Folic acid, is a Vitamin B required by the body to make DNA and other processes. Folate cannot be made by the body so needs to be consumed in the diet. If folate levels are not high enough in your diet, you can develop folate deficiency. This test will determine your ability to process folate.
Gene tested: MTHFR
Vitamin B12 is required by the body to make DNA and other processes. Vitamin B12 cannot be made by the body so needs to be consumed in the diet. If these levels are not high enough in your diet, you can develop Vitamin B12 deficiency. This test will determine your ability to process Vitamin B12.
Genes tested: FUT and TCN1
Vitamin D is made by the liver in response to sun exposure and can also be consumed in the diet. Vitamin D deficiency may cause muscle pain and weakness, bone pain and experience increased risk of fractures. This test will determine your ability to break town Vitamin D.
Gene tested: GC
Vitamin A regulates growth, bone remodelling, vision, cell growth and immune system function. Vitamin A deficiency is rare but can result in poor vision and weak immune system, increasing the chance of infection. This test will determine your ability to process Vitamin A.
Gene tested: BCMO1
After food consumption, a hormone called leptin is released which acts on the brain to suppress hunger, making you feel full. Some individuals may not feel full after a meal due to specific polymorphisms in their genes leading to higher food intake and weight gain. This test will determine your satiety response and chance of obesity.
Genes tested: LEPR, SH2B1, MC4R
A protein called NYP acts on the brain’s appetite centre to stimulate hunger which contributes to increased food intake and weight gain. This test will determine your hunger stimulation response and chance of obesity.
Gene tested: NYP2R
This test will look into the effects of Ghrelin, a hormone involved in increasing your appetite, and how your levels of ghrelin will affect your eating behaviour.
Gene tested: FTO
Decreased energy metabolism contributes to increased weight gain. This test will determine the relationship between energy metabolism, appetite and chance of obesity.
Gene tested: PCSK1
Food pleasure response
This test will determine how the chemical dopamine controls your brain’s pleasure and reward centre. A decreased pleasure response can increase the desire to consume more food to experience satisfaction of feeling full.
Gene tested: DRD2
This test will look into how the protein NMB regulates food intake, and how the levels of this protein affects your susceptibility to hunger and binge-eating.
Gene tested: NMB
This test will look into the effects of leptin, a hormone that acts on the areas of the brain responsible for hunger suppression. Changes in leptin function can determine your snacking behaviour and response to food intake.
Gene tested: LEPR
This test will look into your sensitivity to sugar and ultimately the likelihood of consuming sugar-containing food.
Gene tested: SLC2A2
Proinsulin to insulin conversion
Insulin is made from a precursor protein called proinsulin in the pancreas. This test will look at the efficiency of proinsulin to insulin conversion, and how this affects your glucose levels.
Genes tested: MADD, ACDY5, GLIS3
Fasting blood glucose
This test will investigate your fasting blood glucose levels (between meals) and how your genes predisposes you to Type 2 Diabetes.
Genes tested: G6P2C, ADRA2A, PROX1, GCK and SLC2A2
This test will look into your insulin secretion and its impact on glucose regulation.
Genes tested: TCF7L2, SLC30A8, MTNR1B and Intergenic
This test will look into how well insulin can be detected.
Genes tested: NAT2 and Intergenic.

Blood Pressure Response
Regular physical activity is recommended to decrease or maintain overall blood pressure. Your genetics can help you determine how your blood pressure changes in response to exercise.
Gene tested: EDN1
High-density lipoprotein (HDL), also known as ‘good’ cholesterol, removes excess and ‘bad’ cholesterol (LDL) from the bloodstream and prevents it being deposited in the arteries. This test will determine your response to cholesterol changes post exercise, and the associated benefits.
Gene tested: LIPC
Muscle fibres can be categorised as slow titch and fast twitch. The proportion of each fibre varies from person to person due to genetic differences. Fast twitch fibres contract quickly but tire easily and are used in power exercises such as sprinting and weightlifting. This test will determine your muscle response to power based exercises.
Genes tested: ACTN3, NOS3, ACE and AGTR2
Muscle fibres can be categorised as slow titch and fast twitch. The proportion of each fibre varies from person to person due to genetic differences. Slow twitch fibres contract more slowly but don’t tire as easily and are used in endurance activities such as football, swimming and cycling. This test will determine your muscle response to endurance based exercises.
Genes tested: ACE, PPARA, ACSL1, NFIA-AS2 and AGTR2
Muscle growth, repair and recovery
These are key components of a training programme that determines overall exercise performance and efficiency. A balance between these allows for normalisation of blood pressure, replenishment of energy stores and maintains homeostasis. This test will determine your body’s immune response during exercise and determine your muscles ability in growth, repair and recovery.
Genes tested: IL6, TNF and AMPD1
The achilles tendon joins the heel bone to our calf muscle, allowing for movement during muscle contraction. Achilles tendinopathy is where there is a gradual deterioration of the tendon due to micro-injuries developed over time. This test will determine your genetic risk of developing this condition.
Genes tested: MMP3 and COL5A1
