Nutrigenetics can explain why two individuals of similar age, stature, and activity levels will react differently to the same diet. Should you be consuming more or less saturated fat? Will a low-carb diet actually benefit you? What supplements should you be taking? Which supplements do you need to function properly? These are all questions that the information hidden in your DNA can help to solve.
If good health is what you seek, it is imperative that you take a DNA test. This is to help you discover more about your genes and nutrition. It helps in managing of weight and avoidance of chronic diseases. Most tests are taken with cotton swabs and tested.
Nutrigenetics allows, through the study of DNA, to determine the quantity and quality of nutrients that each person needs. Dr. Gaia Zaccarelli, Head of the Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics Service at Villa Igea Private Clinic in Modena, at our Poliambulatorio in Modena offers specialist services for diagnosis and treatment of all food-related problems, using innovative methods.
She began his medical profession as a doctor in medical radiology techniques, earning a second degree in Applied Dietary Sciences in the year 2011.
In 2014 she obtained the title of Doctor of Nutrition Sciences at the Sapienza University of Rome. In addition to carrying out the nutritional examination and elaboration of the personalized dietary scheme, it performs GENETIC TESTS through a simple salivary swab, which allow to obtain information on the genetic component, which is unique in each or of us, which regulates the functioning of our body. Genetic tests are not only aimed at patients who have to lose weight, but all those who want to have an evaluation of their health status as a prevention.
The Genetic Tests available are:
Genodiet Sensor, to identify any food intolerances and sensitivities of genetic origin.
Genodiet Health, for a personalized and complete evaluation of the individual physiological and metabolic characteristics for a tailored prevention.
Genodiet Slim, a concrete support to define a balanced and tailored food plan, to lose weight more quickly and easily.
Genodiet Sport, to define the training plan and nutrition that best exploits its potential, improving sports performance.
Genokit antiaging, which analyzes specific biomarkers to trace the profile of cell aging.
Procreates nutrigenokit, for targeted nutrition in pregnancy.
Genokit Cardiorisk, to prevent cardiovascular risk.
Stressox Genokit, for oxidative stress.
Vitamin Genokit, to evaluate a genetic predisposition to osteoporosis.
Genokit Child , to know what the arrangements are metabolic ions against fundamental substances that are introduced with the diet.
Genokit Woman, typically female issues are taken into consideration, such as the predisposition to osteoporosis, the analysis of the MTHFR gene gives us useful indications on the use of oral contraceptives , the predisposition to migraines.
It is also possible to carry out the following tests by drawing blood from the finger, using a small lancing device: Test for intestinal dysbiosis, in addition to taking blood from the finger, a urine sample is also needed to assess a deficiency or an imbalance in the intestinal bacterial flora.
Lipidomics, studies the composition of the body's fatty acids, taking into consideration the most representative compartment, that is the cell membrane, highlighting functions and variations linked to different physiological and pathological situations.
Food intolerances, for the search for IgE mediated immunoglobulins that the organism produces and when it is exposed to an allergen. Rast test, aimed at finding antibodies directed towards specific allergens (environmental and food), the presence of immunoglobulin E (IgE) is evaluated in order to confirm the predisposition to specific allergic reactions.
Nutrigenetics, is carried out with a simple salivary swab, for to identify a predisposition to celiac disease (chronic inflammation of the small intestine, triggered by the ingestion of gluten in genetically predisposed subjects) or an intolerance to lactose, the main sugar in milk.
Specialized in: Slimming with the SAIP method (Food System) Integrated Penta), which takes up the thought of the 1973 Harvard professor Blackburn GL, also a researcher at MIT Thanks to this method, it is possible to lose weight easily, safeguarding the muscle mass. METABOLIC HOLTER or Sense Wear Armband (SWA) is a multi-sensor instrument that, when worn on the right arm for a period of time, provides the calculation of energy expenditure and the quantification of physical activity during normal daily activities, sleep. The physiological signals of the body will be used to calculate energy consumption based on predetermined algorithms. The analysis of these algorithms allows the doctor to accurately draw up an at personam nutritional protocol.
