Digestion

You know the phrase, ‘You are what you eat.’ But the opposite is also true — what you eat depends on who you are. That’s because your genetics can influence how well your body can digest certain foods. Also, many digestive disorders like colon cancer, Crohn’s disease, and pancreatic cancer can be hereditary. Learning how your body reacts to certain foods can help you adopt smart nutrition habits to mitigate these genetic dispositions.

Celiac Disease / Predisposition to celiac disease

For those with celiac disease, gluten-rich products like rye or wheat can be highly toxic. When gluten enters the body, it causes the immune system to respond and start destroying the lining of the small intestine. Other common symptoms include bone loss, fatigue, malnutrition, and even delayed puberty.

Lactose / Probability of lactose intolerance

Two genes are believed to have an impact on lactose intolerance development: LCT, a gene that codes lactase synthesis; and MCM6 that controls an age-dependent change of LCT activity.

IBD / Predisposition to the inflammatory bowel disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a disorder that leads to a chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Genes which are linked to IBD are mostly related to the abnormal immune response.
