Genetics and Epigenetics of Autoimmunity: How Can Nutrigenomic Testing be Useful in Practice

By heheals

What to do when your immune system is working against you? Some people might be genetically susceptible to autoimmune diseases (such as Type 1 diabetes and arthritis) while others might develop them due to illness or environmental factors. Dr Eve Pearce looks at the mechanisms behind autoimmunity, such as methylation and chromatin mechanisms, and the role of genetics and epigenetics. Finally, the webinar covers the topic of nutrigenomic testing and the SNPs that might give us a clue on what’s going on behind autoimmune diseases. Dr Eve also looks at a real-life case study with genetically compromised methylation pathways.

*Correction: 30:54 – Under methylation can lead to slightly increased homocysteine levels
