Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for Adiponectin Levels is
What does this mean?
Your genotypes are associated with typical adiponectin levels.
How Is Your Genetic Risk Calculated?
This result is based on the SNPs(single nucleotide polymorphism)that are associated with Adiponectin Levels.
These are the genes tested for Adiponectin Levels:
Risk Factors Can Influence The Risk of Developing Adiponectin levels
Genetics are NOT the only risk factor for Adiponectin Levels.
Adiponectin Levels is believed to be caused by a combination of environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors. Now that you have learnt about your genetic risk, you can determine how aggressively you need to make lifestyle changes to reduce your risk.
The earlier in your life that you commit to living a healthy lifestyle, the more you can reduce your risk for or delay the development of Adiponectin Levels.
Suggested Lifestyle Changes
- Consuming a healthy diet, such as the Mediterranean diet, plays an important role in improving adiponectin levels.
- It is advisable to follow the Mediterranean diet to increase the adiponectin level which includes: vegetables, fruit, legumes, whole grains, nuts, white meat, healthy fat, and little to no red meat, butter, or sugar.
- Berberine has shown to be useful increasing the adiponectin level in the body, which provides control to blood glucose and lipid lowering effect.
- Omega-3 fatty acids increase adiponectin levels in the body, which helps to reduce the risk of obesity and other heart-related diseases.
- Reduce consumption of oil and fatty food such as fried chicken, nasi lemak, roti canai.
- Be sure to maintain a healthy weight as people with obesity have increased risks for lower adiponectin levels.
- If you?e overweight, it is advised that you should reduce your weight as it may also lead to many health risks.
- Maintain good health by regularly exercising, at least 3 times a week.
- Avoid / reduce smoking as smokers have increased risks for lower adiponectin levels.
- Regular exercise routine can help increase adiponectin levels in the body to reduce risk of obesity and heart-related disease.
- Exercising at least 150 minutes per week of moderate aerobic activities (eg. brisk walking, gardening, ballroom dancing, jogging, etc) or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercises (eg. sprinting, swimming, cycling, hiking, etc) every week.
- Getting yourself involved in sports interest groups or working out with friends can keep you accountable for exercising regularly.
