Discover how genetics effect your everyday life.

At DDC we understand that our clients wish to live healthier lives and wish to be proactive about doing so. In the past we have all had to take on board generic advice about exercise and diet. With the advent of this advanced genetic test, we can provide advice on diet and exercise but in a way that specifically targets your genetic makeup. This test will provide you with advice on 30 significant categories that directly impact health and that will allow you to tailor make the perfect health regime according to your genes.

Because the way that your genes function impacts every aspect of your health we are able to provide detailed advice about your fitness and what exercises will best suit you and what training types will get you to optimum fitness most effectively.

We can also provide guidance on how your body metabolises certain compounds. Your health is affected by lifestyle including diet, environmental factors and your genetic makeup. With our test, we can guide you by identifying your nutritional needs so that you can adapt your diet to give your body exactly what it needs to be really healthy.

It is all very well having optimal exercise and a perfected diet but our lifestyle choices can also deeply influence our general health so we look at how some of those choices can adversely affect all the good work you may be doing. Even if you don’t have a dedicated exercise regime or a bespoke diet, we could all do with looking at some basic lifestyle choices to improve our general health.

Fitness and Exercise

From your results you will be able to identify if you should be doing endurance type exercise or not. Perhaps you are suited to low intensity but longer duration training or best suited to high impact aerobic sports over short periods of burst activity. The report can also provide practical advice about your injury risk and how to avoid this.

Nutrition and Diet

As we all know, high blood sugar levels play a significant part in certain diseases so knowing if you are susceptible can help you make preventative decisions about carbohydrate and sugar consumption. Your bodies’ use of fat can help you decide if you need to shift to unsaturated fats to avoid long term health issues. It seems that dairy and gluten intolerance is a growing problem so you can discover if this is affecting you and what you can do about it. On a general level, how good is your body at absorbing the vitamins and minerals it needs to be healthy? If it is not as efficient as it could be, you will know what supplements to add or dietary changes you need to make.

Lifestyle

Having tailored exercise and diet, are you compromising your health with the odd alcoholic drink or is your body efficient at breaking down alcohol quickly? Interestingly, alcohol can impact the hormones that affect our ability to exercise so it is a good idea to look at this in conjunction with this test as a whole. Appetite and sleep are very closely aligned and poor sleep can increase appetite and as a result, weight. Migraines are closely linked to diet and so avoid those triggers. A sweet tooth is generally considered a bad thing but your lack of sweet tooth may be pushing you toward savoury, salt laden foods instead.
