DIABETES GENOMICS

Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin a hormone made by the pancreas helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. Sometimes your body doesn’t make enough — or any — insulin . Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells. Over the time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause health problems such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Eye problems
  • Dental disease
  • Nerve damage
  • Foot problems

The genetic mutations that cause diabetes, involve the proteins responsible for insulin production or the ability of the body to use insulin. Mutations cause the proteins to function improperly. Genetic testing can identify these mutations in certain cases.


The genetic test is only going to reveal an association or a probability that someone might get type 1 or type
2 diabetes.

Individuals suffering from or having family history of lifestyle disease can go for this test:

  • Cardiovascular Diseases
  • Hypertension
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

What Do We Test

  • Tendency of Insulin Resistance (IR)
  • IR in response to Fat intake and body fat
  • IR tendency in response to carbohydrate intake
  • Vitamin D requirement for, Diabetes (type II) management
  • Tendency of gluten triggered inflammation and impact on
    Diabetes (type I & II)
  • Diet Vs Exercise responsiveness for weight loss IR
    Intensity of Exercise
