Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for Fat Sensitivity is
What does this mean?
Likely to have normal fat sensitivity Your genotype results indicate that you have no increased risk for higher fat sensitivity.
How Is Your Genetic Risk Calculated?
This result is based on the SNPs(single nucleotide polymorphism)that are associated with Fat Sensitivity.
Suggested Lifestyle Changes
- Your genotype results indicate that you have no increased risk for higher fat sensitivity. Maintain your current diet and monitor your dietary.
- Overall recommended fat intake is within range of 25 to 30 % of total energy intake. The recommended saturated fat intake is less than 10 % of total energy intake.
- For a healthy lifestyle, swap unsaturated fat options with saturated fat. Examples of food containing unsaturated fats are nuts, avocado, canola oil, olive oil, while food with high proportion of saturated fat include cheese, butter, pizza, sausage, red meat, dairy products and some vegetable products, such as palm kernel oil and coconut oil.

- Research has found that tobacco smoking has a negative effect to the fat metabolism as it increase in lipolysis (breakdown of fats in the body), insulin resistance (higher risk of getting diabetes) and tissue lipotoxicity (fat accumulation in tissues).
