There is an increasing demand among athletes to undergo genetic testing in order to understand how variations in their DNA can impact nutrition and training recommendations. To further enhance athletic performance while decreasing the risk for injuries, athletes are looking to dietitians and other healthcare professionals to provide tailored dietary and training advice based on their unique genetic profile.
As such, it is important for dietitians to understand the research supporting nutrigenomics testing in athletics and the subsequent impact on nutrition recommendations provided to athletes.
This session will provide attendees with an overview of the science of nutrigenomics in athletics, discuss the benefits and limitations of current sport genomic testing and review the important aspects to look for when choosing a genetic test.
