SNP polymorphisms related to the topic Mediterranean diet:
|The GG genotype of the ACE rs4343 polymorphism represents a reliable nutrigenetic marker of adverse response to a diet high in saturated fat.
|A beta-3-adrenergic receptor mutation is associated with visceral obesity but lowers serum triglyceride levels. Carriers of the G allele necessarily need strength training to lose weight and keep the body in good shape.
|Reduced risk of stroke following a Mediterranean diet high in unsaturated fat.
|The A allele of the rs16147 variant causes a better metabolic response in terms of insulin resistance and basal insulin secondary to weight loss on two different hypocaloric diets in obese subjects, with improvement being greater on the Mediterranean diet.
|More effective reduction in BMI and fat mass in A allele carriers.
|No reduction in waist circumference in TT compared with a 5.9 cm reduction in G allele carriers on diet.
|This genotype is associated with increased sensitivity to both saturated fat and refined carbohydrates. Thus, allele A impairs the effectiveness of both low-carbohydrate and low-fat diets.
|Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma gene variation on the progression of type 2 diabetes and obesity. Also higher risk of cardiovascular disease with a diet high in saturated fat.
|Lower triglyceride levels, reduced cardiovascular disease risk depend on level of adherence to the Mediterranean diet in the PREDIMED study.
|The common variant rs9939609 of the FTO gene, associated with fat mass and obesity, is associated with fat cell lipolysis as well as early onset of extreme obesity. Studies show that carriers of the risk allele A demonstrate significantly greater weight loss on a fat-restricted diet than non-carriers.
