Low
Normal
High

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.

What is Fat Sensitivity?

Fat is one of the major macronutrients, along with proteins and carbohydrates. Fat serves as a source of energy, acts as an insulation to regulate body temperature, promotes healthy cell functions and helps in vitamin absorption.

In a broad sense, fat can be categorized into two types: saturated fat and unsaturated fat. Examples of food containing unsaturated fats are avocados, olives, peanut butter, vegetable oil like sunflower, corn, or canola, fatty fish like salmon and mackerel. 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.

High intake of saturated fat has always been associated with weight gain and increased BMI. Variants in several genes involved in fat metabolism are reported to have impact on our sensitivity and response to fat intake, which eventually affect the weight and BMI.

Symptoms to watch out for

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Dietary Recommendations:

  1. Your genotype results indicate that you have no increased risk for higher fat sensitivity. Maintain your current diet and monitor your dietary.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Lifestyle Recommendations:

  1. Studies has found that stress slows down fat metabolism, causing you to accumulate more fat in the body. Best to resolve stressful situations and to aim for a more balanced life. Stress reliever methods: Meditation, exercise, get enough sleep, yoga, connect with loved ones.
  2. 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).
