Focused opportunities for all suitably qualified healthcare practitioners to learn more about personalised healthcare programs and offer patients solutions that matter to them.
Fitgenes Australia is a leader in developing insightful genetic profile reports and providing practitioners with the tools and resources to design personalised clinical interventions to address the role of nutrigenomics in health and wellbeing.
We are pleased to offer professional development courses for our accredited and interested healthcare practitioners wishing to build upon their understanding of the role genetics plays in managing and maintaining health and wellbeing.
Discover the importance of genetics in starch carbohydrate metabolism.
Fitgenes Australia is a world leader in developing a genetic profile report and clinical interventions that address the role of the AMY1 gene in starch carbohydrate metabolism. Scientific studies have shown that variations in the human salivary amylase gene (AMY1) differ based on populations, which have traditionally eaten high starch diets, compared to those who have traditionally eaten low starch diets. Variations within the AMY1 gene influence how well the body breaks down and processes starch, meaning that some people can tolerate these carbohydrates better than others.
Our CarbChoice elearning course is designed to educate practitioners in how to test their patient's AMY1 gene variation and interpret the profile report for clinical application, which is the foundation of our CarbChoice program.
Take your Fitgenes accreditation to next level.
Fitgenes is pleased to partner with Manuka Science to offer our accredited practitioners the opportunity to undertake this new online learning course.
Manuka's course compliments the Fitgenes training in that it allows practitioners to take their learning in the field of nutrigenomics to the next level. Many courses focus only on methylation, while others look only at SNPs. This course is different in that is aims to ‘future proof’ students by providing them with the skills needed to continue researching and learning within the rapidly-evolving field of nutrigenomics.
