Weight Management is a challenge for many patients.  The extra pounds contribute to a myriad of health issues and can also result in a destructive cycle of shame and self-blame which impedes the healing process further.With an array of potential diet plans now available, it can be a challenge to know which approach to recommend for each individual patient.  The Kashi Weight Management Panel takes the guesswork out of determining the right plan by going straight to genetics for the answers. Our test provides analysis of genes highly associated with weight gain and elevated body mass index (BMI). Using your results, we offer dietary and lifestyle recommendations that are scientifically supported to help get the fastest results without all the trial-and-error of dieting. For many, a personalized strategy tailored to their genetic code can make a significant impact.
