analyzes more than 60 genes associated with food metabolism and exercise response, and it provides actionable recommendations that may help people optimize their health by tailoring their diet and exercise plans to their genetics. It is the most comprehensive genetic test of its kind in the world.
Suzanne Somers is a longstanding force in the anti-aging and natural health world. Pathway Fit (http://connect.pathway.com
) is a complement to her ideals as it provides individualized information that may help patients to improve their health and wellness.
“Pathway’s mission is to empower physicians and their patients by providing a report they can use to optimize health and wellness,” said Dr. Michael Nova, Pathway's chief medical officer. “The actionable information in the Pathway Fit report has the capability to be a catalyst for behavioral change.”
Since its inception, Pathway Fit has garnered significant positive attention across the globe.
Earlier this year, results were released from a trial (http://blog.pathway.com/the-california-schools-vebapathwa...
) with California Schools Voluntary Employee Benefits Association (VEBA), in which 179 overweight California school employees were evaluated. Results at six months showed that when overweight employees received the Pathway Fit genetic test results, they had significant weight loss success when compared to employees who had previously tried to lose weight, under similar conditions, without the genetic test. And, launched this summer, researchers at the Veterans Affairs San Diego Healthcare System (VASDHS) have begun a prospective randomized clinical trial (http://blog.pathway.com/pathway-genomics-helps-veterans-c...
) of Pathway Fit, focusing on the genetic associations of weight loss and weight regain in veterans enrolled in MOVE!®, a national weight management program designed by the VA National Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (NCP).
Pathway Fit must be ordered through an authorized health care professional, and may be covered by some insurance carriers. The genetic analysis and interpretation is conducted by Pathway Genomics, and all that is needed from the patient is a saliva sample and completion of a brief health and lifestyle questionnaire.
