Tired of conflicting weight loss advice? The reason it is all so confusing might be because there is no such thing as an optimal lifestyle for weight loss -- rather, it comes down to your genetic makeup.
Studies have shown that variation in certain genes has an impact on our requirement of nutrition and changes the impact that different foodstuffs may have on health. These genetic markers may signal susceptibilities to certain health conditions.
Our hormone and DNA test kits provide the output of genetic analysis on a range of genes. Testing is easy: in order to send us a saliva specimen, you simply spit in a tube and send the tube to us in a supplied envelope. Our reports contain your results, their relationship to your health, and customized advice on nutrition and exercise routines to reach and maintain your ideal weight.
Get weightloss advice based on your genetic makeup. Nutrient intake and physical activity are essential factors affecting body weight, body composition, energy metabolism, and energy utilization. Two thirds of our ability to gain or lose weight is down to our genes, which are involved in the susceptibility to gaining or losing weight in response to a given diet, to appetite, to lipid over-absorption and more.

This kit provides actionable results to achieve your ideal weight, identifying lifestyles that are apt for your genetic makeup. The DNA test kit from Persometrics requires a saliva sample to be returned to our lab. From this, we provide you a report to tell you about your fat and carbohydrate sensitivity and weight loss ability. We list provide recommended diets and physical activities based on your genetic profile. The genes analyzed are FTO, PPARG, ADRB2, ACTN3, and ACE. The report giving results and advice on: -Propensity of obesity, -Your satiety in response to food (feeling full), -Fat sensitivity, -Carbohydrate sensitivity, -Cravings, -Weight regain risk, -Your optimal intensity of exercise, -Your optimal type of exercise and -Your optimal diet (proportion of fats, carbohydrates, and protein)
DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) is sometimes dubbed the anti-aging hormone. It is an anabolic compound that can buffer the negative effects of cortisol on several bodily functions and illnesses and can protect against burnout, Alzheimer's, and migraines. More Info
DHEA-s (Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate) is the sulfated form of DHEA, which represents close to ninety-eight percent of the total circulating DHEA in our body. DHEA-s also shows less of an inter-individual variance (both from one day to another, or different times of the day), and is not easily affected by stressors, making testing of DHEA-s more suitable than DHEA as a health biomarker.
Correspondingly, the ratio of DHEA-s over Cortisol often has a stronger effect size on illness than either of the two hormones alone. To obtain saliva for this test, you provide one sample only. Your results will present a reference range as well as an overview of the importance of Cortisol/DHEA-s for health markers.
