Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for Glucose Level During Fasting is
What does this mean?
Likely to have typical glucose level during fasting Your genotype is not associated with elevated fasting blood glucose levels. See recommendations below to prevent increasing fasting blood glucose levels.
How Is Your Genetic Risk Calculated?
This result is based on the SNPs(single nucleotide polymorphism)that are associated with Glucose Level During Fasting.
Risk Factors Can Influence The Risk of Developing Glucose level during fasting
Genetics are NOT the only risk factor for Glucose Level During Fasting.
Glucose Level During Fasting 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 Glucose Level During Fasting.
Physical inactivity increases the risk of impaired blood glucose management.
Obese and overweight individuals have a higher risk of impaired blood glucose management.
Individuals older than 45 are at a higher risk of impaired blood glucose control.
Suggested Lifestyle Changes
- Aim to have an enriching diet with higher cereal fiber and low in calories, for example, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.
- Frequent, small meals can help to slow down the absorption of food, decrease blood sugar levels after meals, and reduce insulin requirement during the course of the day.
- Increase protein proportions while reducing carbohydrate proportions. Proteins require smaller portions to supply the same amount of calories compared to carbs. It also requires more energy to digest, reducing the glycemic load.
- Do more physical activity as the body will respond by up-regulating glucose control.
- Incorporate 30 - 45 minutes of resistance training at least 3 times a week. Some examples are weightlifting, swimming, and bodyweight exercises.
- Incorporate 20 - 40 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercises at least 5 times a week. Some examples are running, cycling, and competitive sports.
Result Explanation Recommendations:
- To prevent glaucoma, it is recommended to take multivitamin pills that contain vitamin A, B-complex, E, C, zinc, magnesium, and calcium.
- Omega-3 oil is important for general eye health.
- Dietary intake of calcium and iron were found to be associated with decreased risk for glaucoma but consumption of mineral supplements with iron, calcium and magnesium might increase the risk of glaucoma.
- High intake of retinol equivalents and vitamin B1 has shown to have a protective effect on open-angle glaucoma.
