Emerging research tells us that our responses to foods are unique. Reducing diet related risk factors leading to ill health requires a personalised approach.
The first step is to look at your diet, which is why I will ask you to keep a food record for 4 or 5 days to assess nutrient intake.
Sometimes however, we may need to delve a little deeper, and there are various tools we can use to gain more insights into your individual metabolic responses. These include;
- Hormone testing – I use a urine test called the Dutch test
- Microbiome testing to check the diversity of your microbiota
- DNA testing for genetic insights into diet related risk factors
Please get in touch if you have any questions about diagnostic tests and when they may be necessary.
