The report says that I am highly likely to respond unfavorably to a nutrient, but my blood report states otherwise. Why is there a discrepancy between these reports?
The outcomes in your report are based on the ‘genetic risk score’, which is a calculated number based on the number of risk markers present in your raw data for each trait. This number indicates a probability and not a certainty. Please remember that the presence of risk markers does not guarantee that an individual will respond in a specific manner to certain nutrients.
The reports serve as a comprehensive risk analysis nudging the users to look in a particular direction. There are other environmental factors that could nullify or alleviate the effect of these genes. Thus, sometimes the symptoms may not be distinctive. It is important to consult a nutritionist to help you understand the report and your body better, before making any changes to your diet.
