Fagron NutriGen ™ test is an innovative genetic test that allows a personalized diet plan to improve health in specific problems and weight regulation taking into account genetic factors by analyzing 384 genetic variations and other relevant characteristics of the patient.
Being overweight and obese can increase the risk of many health problems, including chronic skin disease, diabetes, heart disease, and some types of cancer.
Nutrigenetics studies different reactions of the body (e.g., weight, blood pressure, plasma cholesterol levels, or glucose levels) to a particular type of diet (e.g., a low-calorie or Mediterranean diet), depending on an individual’s genetics.
A personalized diet is a healthy dietary recommendation tailored to our health, lifestyle and genetics, taking into account information obtained through nutrigenetics to provide the body with the nutrients it really needs.

The procedure is very quick and easy. It is performed by taking a swab of the buccal mucosa that lasts one minute. Your sample is then adequately stored and sent to a specialized genetic laboratory.
Note: One hour before taking a swab of the buccal mucosa for genetic testing, you should not eat or drink anything and do not rinse your mouth.
The next step is to fill out a questionnaire with dermatologist about your medical history and medical condition. The whole process takes place in strictly controlled conditions, which guarantee the security and protection of your personal data and your DNA used exclusively for this purpose. The results are ready within 4-5 weeks and are only available to your doctor, after which the patient receives a complete report and recommendation for a personalized diet plan.
