Genetic testing examines your DNA, the genetic information that supports your body functions. This type of testing can identify information in your genes that contribute to illness and chronic disease.
Your DNA also determines the makeup of your gut biome, the trillions of microorganisms that live in large numbers in your small and large intestine. Imbalances in your gut biome can increase your risk for a range of conditions, including:
The DNA Diet Club offers genetic testing to identify factors that contribute to these health issues and gut biome imbalances. In addition to genetic testing, the providers also use the results of gut biome testing to identify what foods you need to eat to keep these health conditions well-controlled.
To access the DNA necessary for evaluation, The DNA Diet Club providers either take a swab of saliva and cells from inside your cheek or take a sample of your blood.
The results of your DNA test can determine if you have or are at risk for a specific disease or disorder. The providers also consider the results of your gut biome test to learn more about your gut health and confirm you’re a good candidate for their customized diet program.
After your genetic testing and gut biome testing is complete, The DNA Diet Club providers discuss your options for the customized diet program. The program package includes:
The providers monitor your progress to ensure you achieve your goals for optimizing your health or achieve weight-loss success. You continue working with your personal health coach throughout your program, so you can learn how to make lifelong changes that support your gut health and function.
