Hormonal secretion, metabolism and excretion are all swayed by both our nutritional status and the many enzymes systems that may be up, or down-regulated as a result of our unique single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).
SNP testing is booming in medicine but we need to be mindful of how these tests are being delivered and interpreted. Today we discuss how to deliver genetic results in the clinical setting to empower rather than burden clients.
Today we talk to Annalie Corse about the clinical relevance of COMT and CBS genes. Two important enzymes that are vital for healthy catecholamine, catechol estrogens, several drugs and homocysteine metabolism.
When supporting fertility management, from a functional and naturopathic perspective, there are a number of factors that are typically taken into consideration to optimise fertility and birth outcomes. One emerging area is Nutrigenomics.
