mySleepCode - Your Sleep Genes Decoded
Sun 9 April 2017, 10:00 – 16:30 BST
A seminar for health professionals to learn about how genetic variances can impact sleep, and how sleep can impact gene expression.
By the end of the seminar you will have an in depth knowledge of at the genes that affect sleep and understand how professional genotype analysis can be used to create personalised diet and lifestyle prescriptions - to enable your clients to achieve optimum sleep.
The genes covered affect almost all body systems so the seminar will provide valueable information for any health professional using nutrigenomics in practice.
1. Introduction - Genetics, Epigenetics and Personalised Health
2. Genetics and Sleep
A detailed examination of genes that affect 6 key aspects of sleep including:
Body Clock - including genes that impact circadian rhythm - CLOCK, PER, and the melatonin receptor - MTNR1B
Stress and Resilience - including genes that impact adrenaline - COMT, cortisol - FKBP5, and blood pressure - ACE
Digestive Health - including genes that impact serotonin - 5HT2A, celiac - HLA-DQA1, and lactase - LCT
Allergy and Immunity - including genes that impact inflammation - TNF-alpha, methylation - HNMT, and histamine - DAO
Appetite and Blood Sugar - including genes that impact insulin/ blood sugar - TCF7L2, satiety - LEPR, and fat storage - FTO
Stimulant Response - including genes that impact caffeine metabolism - CYP1A2, tolerance - ADORA2A, and alcohol - ADH1B
