The Genetics of Obesity & Health


Oxford Journal – Human Molecular Genetics Obesity is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, pulmonary diseases (such as sleep apnoea), metabolic diseases (e.g. diabetes and dyslipidaemia), osteoarticular diseases, for several of the commonest forms of cancer and for serious psychiatric illness. Furthermore, childhood obesity is associated with early onset type 2 diabetes and with an increased mortality risk for coronary heart disease in adulthood.

In our quest to develop and offer practical diagnostic panels, we continue to study their relationship and interplay with other genes and the impact that has on one’s health in both the short and long-term. Our epigenetic programs are developed with ongoing research to provide patient’s with easy to understand and implement life-style modifications or changes based on results and health history.
