Intolerances and Sensitives DNA Test

Anonymous male, aged 50 from Chester

“Using at-home testing, I discovered my energy again. I felt my body evolve from lethargy to vitality.

I had been feeling tired pretty much most of the time - not exhausted, but just lethargic and lacking motivation to do much.

Before I did my DNA test, I had suspected that I could have an underlying intolerance to wheat and gluten, MyHealthChecked’s Intolerances and Sensitives DNA Test revealed that I actually had a low risk of developing either of these. I was extremely surprised to learn that my risk factors were high for sodium, caffeine, and lactose. I’d spent all my time focused on attributing my bodily discomfort to one cause, I was headed in the complete wrong direction.

Although I don’t have a high-salt diet and have been avoiding caffeine, after two days of reducing lactose, I felt an immediate change.

Since altering my diet, I’ve been able to get up early to walk the dog, something I’ve never had the energy to do. Understanding my body's needs and my genetic make-up has also transformed my fitness journey. I have lost nearly a stone in a month through a combination of diet and moderate exercise.

Finally, I was surprised that my eyes have felt a lot clearer. Previously they’d felt rather dry and gritty, which I attributed to feeling tired all the time. Since reducing my lactose intake, my eyes feel a lot clearer, no longer irritated and I seem to be able to focus better.”

Weight Management DNA Test

Lynne, aged 56 from Maidstone

“It was really helpful to learn that my struggles with keeping the weight off were not because I'm doing something wrong; it’s just the way my body works.

Losing weight was relatively straightforward, but maintaining it was a bit trickier. Then I heard about a weight-management DNA test from MyHealthChecked, and the results were fascinating.

I learnt that my specific genotype means by body has an impaired function of the ADRB2 gene, which influences the way I process glucose. Thanks to my genotype, I can't keep the weight off with a low-calorie diet - I have to exercise as well.

It had some interesting insights about diet too. My body type isn't brilliant at processing glucose with a later dinner time or an early breakfast, so I've started eating breakfast later at around 9am and dinner earlier at 6pm.

It was helpful learning that my weight struggles weren't because I'm doing something wrong; it's just how my body works."
