Personalized diet and responses to food based on genetics ...
Personalized Nutrition will lead to Personalized Medicine and will allow costs to decline. Finger-prick lab tests are almost here ... and everyone will be able to monitor their Health Parameters from a smart phone. Self-diagnosing will soon to be a reality for pennies on the dollar. So, we really need to start learning how to control our Health and Diet. Dr. Daniel Kraft - TED Talk: Medicine's future? There's an app for that.
Duh, folks we have a Duh Moment (DM). After 104 years, from

Precision Nutrition: Can nutrigenomics testing lead to improved diet quality and better health outcomes?
... Precision medicine - tailoring drugs and therapies to a person’s genetic profile - has been touted in recent years as a way to maximize the benefits of treatment while minimizing side effects. Experts are now wondering if personalizing an individual’s diet according to their DNA profile - called precision nutrition - can also improve health ... says Dr. Hu.
In a 2015 study by researchers in Israel, the researchers analyzed data from 800 study participants - including data on gut microbiota, which play a key role in diet and health - and developed an algorithm that predicts how much an individual’s blood glucose level might increase after a particular meal. The results showed that a dietary intervention based on the algorithm helped participants significantly lower their typical post-meal blood sugar spikes. (1,2)
Dietary intake is a central determinant of blood glucose levels, and thus, in order to achieve normal glucose levels it is imperative to make food choices that induce normal postprandial (post-meal) glycemic responses (PPGR; Gallwitz, 2009 - Diabetes Care). (3)
Dr. Hu points out some of the implications of Precision Nutrition. (1,2)
The problem with some of Dr. Hu's conslusions, is that, they have been known for the last 5 years. For example, fecal tranplanting reasearch is part of the gut microbiota which accounts for an estimated 80% of our immune system activity.
Personalized Medicine - Daniel Kraft - Physician and Scientist is faculty chair for the Medicine and Exponential Medicine program at Singularity University. He points out that Exponential Medicine, which is the future of medicine, and its affects can be enhanced by utilizing:
Ray Kurzweil has proposed the Exponential Growth Factor and its effects on our lives. Dr. Kraft outlines innovations in medicine, powered by new tools, tests and apps that bring diagnostic information right to the patient's bedside.
The good news is that Medicine will change and doctors will have much more information and can explore the impact and potential of rapidly developing technologies as applied to health and medicine. This will benefit patients.
Personalized Medicine will give tools to the patient and will allow costs to decline. Finger-prick lab tests are almost here ... and everyone will be able to monitor their Health Parameters from a smart phone. Dr. Daniel Kraft - TED Talk: Medicine's future? There's an app for that.
Personalized Nutrition -will allow each individual to make better decisions. It is a question of learning and training. Individuals still have to believe enough to change eating habits. Industrialized food manufactures will have to accept the inevitable.
Personalized Medicine -will be based on an understanding of genetic traits, our inherited epigenetics, and the metabolic pathways that allow our sells to live and reproduce successfully.
