Interleukin Genetics launched the first weight management genetic test of its kind. The Inherent Health® Weight Management (WM) test panel uses commonly occurring genetic variations to determine an individual’s inherent differences in fat absorption and metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, and responsiveness to exercise.

In a clinical study with a major university, individuals on a diet that matched the recommendations of the Inherent Health Weight Management genetic test lost more than twice as much weight as those on the same diets but where they did not match the results of the genetic test.

The information from the WM test panel will assist people in the choice of nutrition and exercise to better maintain a healthy body weight and composition that are appropriate for their individual genotypes.
