Lipid Metabolism

What is the significance of Lipid Metabolism Panel?

The Lipid Metabolism Support Panel analyses a gene responsible for a key enzyme required for the production of a protein called VLDL.

Specific genes help the production of proteins that are responsible for removing cholesterols from the blood and taking them to the liver for breakdown. It is widely known that maintaining normal levels of cholesterol is absolutely vital for protection against cardiac conditions like heart attack and stroke.

After analysing this gene, it is easy for Nutrigenomic counsellors to devise appropriate diet and exercise regimen to support the function of the gene and decrease the risk of any heart-related disorder the person might have.
