Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for Carbohydrate Sensitivity is
What does this mean?
Likely to have a low carbohydrate sensitivity Your genotypes indicate that you have a lower tendency to be insulin resistant. Your body is likely to have a lower insulin response, and thus you are likely not carbohydrate-sensitive.
How Is Your Genetic Risk Calculated?
This result is based on the SNPs(single nucleotide polymorphism)that are associated with Carbohydrate Sensitivity.
Suggested Lifestyle Changes
- Take note of the amount and the type of carbohydrate you consume.
- The dietary guidelines recommend that carbohydrates provide 45 to 65 % of your daily calorie intake. So if you eat a 2000-calorie diet, you should aim for about 225 to 325 grams of carbohydrates per day.
- Sources of complex carbohydrates (unprocessed whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and legumes) are preferable to simple carbohydrates (e.g. white breads, sodas, pastries, and other highly processed foods) as complex carbohydrates often also provide necessary vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre.
- Increased levels of daily physical activity help to maintain general health.
