Can Genes Make You Fat?

In the case of weight loss, a person’s genes may be stacked against them. Identification of your genetic profile can help clarify the etiology of obesity and its metabolic consequences.


Recent numbers indicate that 65-80 percent of U.S. citizens over the age of 25 are either obese or overweight. While obesity itself is not considered a disease, it is the primary etiology in most cases of:

–          Type 2 diabetes

–          Coronary heart disease

–          Gallstone attacks


In addition, more than a third of hypertension cases and approximately 10 percent of breast and colon cancers can be attributed to obesity. Given the prevalence of these implications, weight loss can play an important role in preventative health and longevity.
