EPISODE 118 - DNA FOCUS - PPARG GENE
Manage episode 185850518 series 1184045
This week we look at PPARG, a gene that appears in both our carbohydrate and fat sensitivity panels within our diet report. This gene creates a protein known as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma, which plays a role in the formation of fat cells, as well as the use of fats and carbohydrates as a source of energy.
Studies Referenced in the Episode:
Individuals with the CC genotype are likely to be more sensitive to the negative effects of fats and refined carbohydrates within the diet. As such, they should consume wholegrain carbohydrates, as well as fruits and vegetables, alongside a moderate intake of fats – with a focus on poly- and mono-unsaturated fatty acids.
Neither genotype is associated with an increased sensitivity to refined carbohydrates or saturated fats.
