FitGenes has developed Carb Choice, a personalised genetic profile report based on your salivary amylase, AMY 1 gene, which determines how well you break down and tolerate starch from carbohydrates. This has a knock-on effect on many areas of health, so by understanding your Carb Choice gene profile, you can best manage health issues including weight management, diabetes, gluten intolerance and dental decay.
Using your Carb Choice genetic profile, Amanda can design a personalised intervention plan, including recommendations on the type and quantity of carbohydrates that you are best suited to consume.
The test requires a simple DNA sample taken from a mouth swab. You will receive a report containing your AMY 1 gene copy number variation and further supporting information, with dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
