Obesity Gene Testing

Our Obesity Gene Testing is a next generation sequencing test that simultaneously examines 99 genes to understand the genetic architecture of obesity.

Otogenetics' Obesity Gene Testing can help identify the risk of developing of obesity and most effective intervention.

The pathophysiological processes that underlie metabolic diseases start decades before the onset of symptoms, and studies estimate that 40-70% of obesity is heritable. Knowing your genetics can help identify the risk for developing obesity and the most effective intervention.

Genetic Testing Provides:

  • Insights for risk
  • Implications for intervention

Why choose Otogenetics Obesity Gene Testing?

Otogenetics worked with GBInsight to develop this Obesity Gene Panel. Once the Obesity Gene Panel test is completed, we want you to have the information you need to understand genes involved with body mass, central nervous system regulation of appetite, emotional eating, eating disorders, and energy level, basal metabolic rate, lipid metabolism and body fat distribution. 

State of the Art NGS Technique

Our Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) techniques eliminate ambiguities at every locus compared to other genetic testing methods, giving more accurate results.

Reporting Options

The obesity gene testing is currently offered for research use. Researchers and clinicians can order the tests for clinical investigation purposes. This test will help clinicians identify the potential genetic etiology of obseity and help them design more targeted and effective interventions.

Reports Include:

  • Genetic variants called from NGS
  • Pathogenic/likely pathogenic mutations previously reported in the ClinVar database and literatures
  • Novel variants that are in silicon predicated as high impact to the disease.
  • Pathway ranked genetic risk scores
