How it works
SPORTS & FITNESS
Physical fitness is a state of health and well-being, it can be defined as more specifically having the ability to perform aspects of sports, occupations and daily activities, and it helps to reduce your risk of heart failure, manage your weight better, have lower blood pressure and lower the risk of type 2 diabetes and some cancers. Being physically fit is generally achieved through proper nutrition, moderate-vigorous physical exercise and sufficient rest. Lab Test Direct aims to help you achieve a healthy and physically fit life style by providing you with the means to follow a specific diet or training regime that is catered specifically for you based on your genetics.
If you’re looking to gain muscle and build strength, whether for health, training or sporting reasons, you can try the Athletic Growth Hormone test which is used to detect certain disorders and diseases such as pituitary tumours, which can cause one’s body to make an abundance of the growth hormone.
Alternatively, if you’re simply looking to follow a healthy diet and lose/maintain weight, you can choose the Healthy Weight DNA profile which helps you to find a genetically-matched diet which will allow physicians to make specific recommendations to their patients to help them achieve or maintain a healthy weight and improve heart health. Clinical studies have shown that individuals who follow a genetically appropriate diet lose significantly more weight and are able to maintain weight loss more easily compared to diets not based on their genetics. Understanding an individual’s unique genetic profile will allow physicians to guide their patients with their weight management goals and improve their overall health.
