Genetic Nutrition Testing

Have you ever wondered why dieting or the supplements you’re taking don’t have the desired effect? Per research, up to 75% of people have significant genetic variations which affect the metabolism. This can significantly impede the way the body absorbs certain food components. Genetic nutrition testing helps patients identify these variations, offering more context for certain medical conditions. This information also allows our healthcare providers to design personalized plans for improving wellness. Our positive track record with these helpful tests makes Austin Preferred a premier destination for genetic nutrition testing in Austin, Texas.

Genetic Nutrition Testing:

Genetic nutrition testing requires minimal effort from the patient. The subject simply needs to visit our South Austin office and provide a cheek swab, which we will send off for analysis. We offer a 26-gene test as well as a more comprehensive 55-gene test. The swab will provide the advanced lab with enough DNA to access the genes and create a complete 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 sent off. Using these insights, the patient and provider can discuss potentially beneficial diet, supplement and lifestyle changes.

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.
