DNA Diet® is a genetic test designed to guide the personalisation of diet and lifestyle recommendations in order to manage weight. It provides insight into which diet type (low carbohydrate, low fat, or Mediterranean diet) would be most suitable for you according to your unique genetic makeup.”

Clinical value

It is suitable for any individual who is trying to lose weight, or has experienced weight loss resistance in the past, or has tried many different diet types without success, or who simply wants to optimise their macronutrient distribution for improved weight management outcomes. There is no one diet or way of eating that is correct for everyone. DNA Diet® will help you understand how the genetic profile can impact the response to different eating plans and which type of diet is best for your patients.
