Clinical Application of the
The Effects of 1-Carbon Metabolism on Chronic Disease
This session is designed to help clinicians grasp the basic concept of methylation and understand its role in personalized and functional medicine. Methylation is a critical biochemical process that is involved in numerous systemic processes such as: hormone regulation/detoxification, neurotransmitter balance, DNA & RNA synthesis, myelination, energy production, and cell membrane repair, to name a few. This complete overview will cover the methylation pathway from a high-level view to a granular perspective in order to help clinicians incorporate methylation assessment into their personalized approach to patient care.
At the end of this presentation, the attendee should be able to:
- Understand what common chronic diseases can be affected by altered methylation dynamics
- Recognize the overall basics of the methylation pathway and common genomic markers that may impact methylation status
- Identify diet and nutrient approaches that may help ensure adequate cofactors for the methylation pathway
The Methylation Panel is an innovative test designed to offer insight into the critical biochemical methylation pathway.
The NutrEval FMV is an advanced diagnostic tool to guide nutritional therapies, often augmenting and speeding recovery of complex chronic conditions.
This nutritional analysis offers insight into nutrient status and allows clinicians to provide targeted treatment for the particular needs of each patient, often augmenting and speeding recovery of complex chronic conditions.
