Glyco Test


Glyco Test measures the effects of inflammation due to sugar consumption and the possible genetic predisposition to some of the most significant genetic diseases that can be addressed with a personalised nutrition profile.
GEK Lab’s physicians and specialists will evaluate your glycation level and suggest a dietary path and lifestyle suited to your individual needs.


After doing this test you will know your levels of Glycation and you will be able to understand your individual excessive intake of every kind of sugar together with a number of genetic predispositions related to chronic diseases and connected with nutritional habits.

The relationship between the most common and relevant chronic conditions and the way we feed is by now scientifically well established and the number of studies that put in correlation alterations of sugar metabolism and their possible prevention and cure is growing more numerous and precise by the day.

GEK Lab has been working for many years on the evidence of elements from analyses that can guide towards an effective model of Personalised Medicine. The dietary suggestions elaborated in the Glyco Test are presented with a scientific approach and on a personalised basis, to enable the patient to better modulate inflammatory responses, and to maintain a healthy, complete and varied eating style.

Genetic predisposition

Being able to know and understand some aspects of one’s genetic profile and its eventual predisposition to some of the most common conditions, can be a great help in the process of conscious improvement of the overall picture of once health. The test only analyses those gene variants that are recognised by established science as significant and effectively connected with the development of certain diseases.

The genetic predisposition to a metabolic disease makes a person more sensible to the alterations deriving from unhealthy nutrition habits, making a cautious approach by the individual of even greater importance. At the same time this sensitivity makes each positive change in food habits both more effective and faster-acting towards the resolution of the problem (for example, weight loss or the control of blood sugar) once it is enacted. In this way, knowing these genetic variants becomes a valuable and effective instrument towards conquering and maintaining your wellbeing.


TCF7L2 – Genetic Predisposition towards Diabetes
The test evaluates the presence of mutations in this gene, related to the development of diabetes.


FTO – Genetic Predisposition towards Obesity
The test evaluates the presence of mutations in this gene, related to the development of obesity and metabolic diseases.


PNPLA3 – Genetic Predisposition towards Hepatic Steatosis
The test evaluates the presence of mutations in this gene, related to the development of Hepatic Steatosis


MGO and AG
The test measures the levels of these two byproducts of glycation, indicators of a sugar- related inflammation and of an excessive intake of sugar-like substances (glucose, fructose, alcol, polyols).
