Genetic Nutrition Testing in Austin

Genetic Nutrition Testing

Have you ever wondered why dieting or the supplements you’re taking don’t have the desired effect? According to research, up to 75% of people have significant genetic variations which affect metabolism. This affects the way the body absorbs certain food components, which can have a significant impact on overall wellness. Genetic nutrition testing helps patients identify these variations while offering more context for certain medical conditions. The healthcare providers at Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine use Genetic Nutrition Testing in Austin to gain more insight into our patients’ genetic makeup, which allows them to design more efficient plans of care.

Because Austin Preferred’s holistic approach focuses on using natural solutions to relieve pain, this type of testing can play a valuable role in improving patients’ wellness. 

Genetic Nutrition Testing in Austin

Genetic Nutrition Testing requires very little from the patient. The subject simply needs to visit our South Austin office for a routine cheek swab, which we will send off for analysis. The swab will provide our advanced lab with enough DNA to access the genes and create a detailed diagnostic panel. Patients will then go over the results with the providers at Austin Preferred, usually just within 10 business days after the sample is received. Using the information from the results, the patient and provider can discuss potentially beneficial diet, supplement, and lifestyle changes.

We offer a 26-gene test as well as a more comprehensive 55-gene test. Health insurance does not cover these tests. However, the potential benefits from genetic nutrition testing pale in comparison to the cost and effort required. Moreover, we offer free consultations for serious candidates.
