Our PCOS Genomics test panel helps females understand their genetic constitution, with regards to oestrogen imbalances. Research has shown that fluctuating oestrogen levels are a cause of concern for the female health as it is associated with risks including infertility and cancers.
Oestrogens are a group of female a hormone which are responsible for bestowing “femaleness” on an individual and gives females the exclusive gift of giving birth. The female body has its own unique ways to balance levels of oestrogen as and when needed. One of the major functions of oestrogens is to cause the thickening of the endometrial lining in the uterus to support the nesting of the fertilised ovum and subsequent development of the foetus.
The levels of oestrogen need to increase dramatically just prior to ovulation (release of the ovum from the ovaries) and then there needs to be a sudden decline in their levels for the ovum to release. If, however, the oestrogen levels fail to decrease, the ovum is not released from the ovary and it remains within it and forms a cyst. Thus, this could be a major reason for infertility.
Oestrogens affect cells by hastening their growth and multiplication. If oestrogens show this kind of activity in other regions of the body, where it is not required, they can cause cancers, like breast- and uterine cancers.
Through this test, the genetic tendency for oestrogen imbalances is found out and a diet strategy is devised to normalise such imbalances, which will ultimately result in the alleviating of cancer and infertility risks in the female.
It’s a paradox that has flummoxed women for generations — their apparent ability to store fat more efficiently than men, despite eating proportionally fewer calories. While it has long been suspected that female sex hormones are responsible, a new research review has for the first time drawn a link between one hormone — estrogen — and its impact on fat storage for childbearing.
This is your brain on estrogen
It’s no secret that women often gain weight as they get older. The sex hormone estrogen has an important, if underappreciated, role to play in those burgeoning waistlines. Now, researchers have traced those hormonal effects on metabolism to different parts of the brain. The findings may lead to the development of highly selective hormone replacement therapies that could be used to combat obesity or infertility in women without the risks for heart disease and breast cancer, the researchers say.
Estrogen in birth control pills has a negative impact on fish
New research shows that hormones found in birth control pills alter the genes in fish, which can cause changes in their behavior.
Estrogen Controls How The Brain Processes Sound
Scientists have discovered that the hormone estrogen plays a pivotal role in how the brain processes sounds.
Very helpful professionals ! And very supportive !
It is a good experience overall. Nice dietetians and staff . Good communication.
1) “The implication here is that anyone with this genotype should be rigorously attentive to their diet and lifestyle, These individuals should avoid smoking and alcohol while undertaking exercise and eating a diet low in saturated fat. Nonetheless, at present, very few people are aware of their APOE genotype.” – Dr. Ferguson. “
2) “The companion science of Nutrigenomics helps us to determine the specific nutrients needed to prompt healthy gene expression in certain key genes, so that people can thrive”- Dr. Amy Yasko.

Our genetic test involves a simple saliva or blood test. For this, you can choose to either visit our center or share your address with us to undertake doorstep delivery of the sample collection kits. The sample collection process is very easy; you just need to follow the basic steps mentioned on the kit. Once the sample is collected it is taken back to our lab and processed further. The results take a few weeks after which a detailed genetic report is prepared by our team. The report explains your diet plan and lifestyle modifications, which are followed by counselling by our experts.
