NUTRIGENOMICS

DNAlysis is at the forefront of nutrigenomics, the study of the interaction of nutrition and genes, providing healthcare practitioners with an unparalleled depth of insight into your personal dietary needs.

DNA DIET

Your DNA is unique to you, we believe your diet should be too

DNA Diet is designed to assist the healthcare practitioner in the design of a personalised healthy eating plan based on individual genetic differences. As part of this world-leading product’s offering, DNA Diet also provides additional insight into how each patient individual responds to:

  • Mono-unsaturated fat
  • Poly-unsaturated fat
  • carbohydrates,
  • saturated fats, and
  • exercise

This allows a dietician to personalise an optimised eating plan that is scientifically driven to work.

It is important to note that DNA Diet is not a diet plan and simply having the test done in no way contributes to weight loss. It is a tool that your healthcare practitioner will use to better understand your genetic profile, helping them to recommend a healthy eating plan best suited to you.

There is no one diet or way of eating that is correct for everyone, but DNA Diet will identify the best way for each person. DNA Diet tests several gene variations that impact metabolism, absorption and storage of fats and carbohydrates, as well as eating behaviour to understand how an individual’s genetic profile will impact their response to our most effective healthy eating plans:

  • Low fat
  • Mediterranean
  • Low Carbohydrate

Weight management and healthy eating are integral to long-term health and can prevent poor health and various chronic diseases. DNA Diet is used by medical practitioners to gain insight into their patients’ requirements for healthy eating.

DNA HEALTH

Start living your healthiest life today

DNA Health is designed to identify any potential lifestyle diseases and to optimise a patient’s well-being and health by personalising their lifestyle and diet choices.

The DNA Health approach assists the healthcare practitioner in establishing the optimal nutrition necessary for good health, longevity and disease risk mitigation.

To help patients live healthier, more rewarding lives, DNA Health tests for 36 gene variants to identify any precursors to lifestyle diseases:

  • Cholesterol metabolism and risk for heart disease
  • Bone Health & risk for osteoporosis
  • Methylation and B Vitamin requirements
  • Inflammation and oxidative stress
  • Insulin Sensitivity and risk for diabetes
  • Detoxification
  • Food Responsiveness, including lactose intolerance, caffeine processing, salt sensitivity, and blood pressure and iron overload disorders

DNA SPORT

Physical training raised to the level of science

The effectiveness of training and sporting performance is affected by key biological areas, and with DNA Sport, we can help personalise a training strategy that optimises your genetic potential, and identify the right lifestyle, nutrition and environmental interactions to optimally express your genetic potential.

DNA Sport reports on the following areas:

  • Structural integrity of soft tissues
  • Inflammation & oxidative stress
  • Blood flow & respiration
  • Energy during exercise
  • Fuel during exercise
  • Caffeine metabolism
  • Muscle and bone composition
  • Endurance/aerobic capacity
  • Power/strength potential

From exploiting potential advantages as and identifying weaknesses, the DNA Sport test can distinguish every aspect of a person’s sporting potential. These insights can then be used to personalise a training programme and identify appropriate training and nutrition choices.

Ultimately, DNA Sport can determine the best way to maximise sporting potential, prevent injury and optimise recovery to reach peak levels of conditioning.

DNA MIND

A sound mind in a sound body

According to research, neuropsychiatric disorders account for up to 25% of all disability-adjusted life years. Whilst the heritability of these mental disorders is significant, environmental factors also factor into their development. Genetic variations involved in key biological processes that contribute toward the risk of development of mental health disorders may give insights to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease.

The DNA Mind test analyses 30 genes which have been shown to have significant associations with key mental health disorders, and reports on the following areas:

  • Neurodegenerative disorders (alzheimer’s disease, dementia, cognitive decline)
  • Addictive behaviour (a risk for alcohol, nicotine, cannabis & opioid dependence; Psychosis response from cannabis use; eating disorders (binge eating))
  • Adrenaline-seeking (risk-taking behaviour)
  • Mood regulation (depression, bipolar, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorders)

By understanding an individual’s unique genetic makeup and predispositions, healthcare clinical professionals can better in developing strategies for individuals suffering from, or at risk of, mental health disorders.

DNA Mind Report Provides:

  • Identification of the level of impact of any genetic variants
  • An explanation of their impact on the specific biochemical area
  • An explanation of each area’s impact on mental health

Taking the test may help you, and/or your patients, understand ways that may avoid the onset of a range of neurological disorders.

DNA oestrogen

Take control of your life

A majority of breast cancer occurs in women with no family history of it, but oestrogen gene testing can assist in identifying at-risk individuals and thereby lessen the risk of undetected cancers. DNA Oestrogen tests for gene variants that have been shown to have an impact on how oestrogen is processed in the body and if the processing of oestrogen and related compounds is efficient and healthy.

DNA Oestrogen reports on the following areas:

  • Variations in key genes involved in metabolizing oestrogen and related compounds
  • Impact of high-risk gene variations
  • Intervention strategies for carriers of high-risk genetic variations
  • Personal risk factors associated with HRT, oral contraceptives and bio-identical supplementation 

Research shows that an increased lifetime exposure to oestrogen is a strong risk factor in the development of breast cancer.

The DNA Oestrogen test guides the personalisation of diet, hormone and nutritional supplement recommendations to improve oestrogen metabolism.

Not only does DNA Oestrogen benefit men and women who suffer from numerous oestrogen-dominant conditions, but the test is particularly important for woman considering:

  • oral contraceptives,
  • hormone replacement therapy,
  • bio-identical supplementation or
  • who have been diagnosed with oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer.

Practitioners use DNA Oestrogen test results to prescribe individualised nutritional and lifestyle interventions to mitigate breast cancer risk in women with high-risk genetic profiles.

DNA SKIN

Look younger for longer with a healthier skin

Your genetics determines everything about you, including how your DNA handles the potentially destructive exposure to UV rays. DNA Skin can, however, help you mitigate that by testing 19 gene variations involved in the following areas:

  • Firmness and elasticity
  • Sun sensitivity and pigmentation
  • Sun damage, protection and repair
  • Antioxidant status
  • Inflammation

Based on the results from the DNA Skin test, personalised lifestyle, nutrition, nutraceutical and cosmeceutical recommendations can be given for improved skin care and to decrease the visible signs of ageing.

We can help you identify potential risk factors and inherent propensities to a range of skin conditions and qualities, from oily skin to freckling.

PHARMACOGENOMICS

As a worldwide leader in the field of pharmacogenomics, DNAlysis is able to test an individual’s genetics to determine how a patient will respond to medication. At DNAlysis we test how patients’ genes metabolise, transport, and bind specific prescription drugs; this informs physicians to prescribe personalised regimes of the most effective compounds.

It’s no longer a case of ‘take two and call me in the morning’

How a patient responds to medications is partly determined by the genes that govern drug metabolism, and pharmacogenomics empowers the doctor to provide specific medical interventions, based on the patient’s genetic profile and replaces the current trial and error approach to drug therapy.

The benefits of pharmacogenomic testing include:

  • Improve efficacy of treatment, improved quality of life for the patient
  • Decrease treatment time
  • Save money on ineffective medications
  • Patients avoid unpleasant or possible fatal side effects of some medications
