GX Sciences strives to educate our practitioners about genetic and environmental factors that could explain symptoms associated with various female disorders. Hormonal, metabolic and vitamin abnormalities in women can produce several undesirable effects such as weight gain, sleep disturbances, infertility, fatigue and mood disturbances. Knowing genetic predisposition allows you and your physician to determine the proper course of nutrition, hormonal therapy and metabolic risk.
Why is it important?
Our comprehensive nutrigenomic panel, Women’s Health, can identify underlying contributing factors to PCOS, hypothyroidism, estrogen dominant symptoms (ex. irregular menstrual cycles, fibrocystic breasts, excess facial/body hair, hair loss, mood changes), female cancers and history of miscarriage and/or fertility issues. This genetic test evaluates specific genes that involve estrogen metabolism. Hormonal issues with estrogen/progesterone balance and altered estrogen metabolism can lead to a higher risk of developing deep venous thrombosis, hypertension and altered blood pressure and fluid balance. In more severe cases, there is an increased risk for cancers, miscarriage, placental separation, pre-eclampsia and pulmonary embolisms. Genetic findings and interpretations through the GX Sciences supplementation algorithm can help determine:
- Insufficiencies in Vitamin Conversion & Delivery
- Hypertension & Clot Risks
- Issues in Estrogen Metabolism & Clearance
- Follicular Sensitivity in Ovarian Response
- Hormone Metabolism of Androgen Markers in Women
- Autophagy Consideration in Relation to Metabolic Risk Factors
