Fitgenes is pleased to offer short, professional development courses for degree qualified and interested healthcare practitioners wishing to build upon their understanding of the role genetics plays in managing and maintaining health and wellbeing.
Some courses are for Fitgenes Accredited Practitioners and others are for those interested in getting started with Fitgenes. Our CarbChoice program is a great course to get started with us.
How well do your clients process carbohydrates?
Is poor processing the cause of ongoing health issues?
Offer your clients support for managing starch carbohydrate processing. Learn the value of testing the AMY1 gene variation and interpret the genetic profile report for clinical application in managing carbohydrate metabolisation.
Fitgenes Australia is a world leader in developing a genetic profile reports and supporting practitioners with clinical interventions that address the role of the AMY1 gene CNV in starch metabolism.
Scientific studies have shown that variations in the human salivary amylase gene (AMY1) differ based on populations, which have traditionally eaten high starch diets, compared to those who have traditionally eaten low starch diets. Variations within the AMY1 gene influence how well the body breaks down and processes starch, meaning that some people can tolerate these carbohydrates better than others.
Our elearning course is designed to educate practitioners on how to test their patients' AMY1 gene copy number variation and interpret the profile report for clinical application.
Our unique profile report:
Research has shown patients should see improved health and wellbeing in areas such as:
Enrol in our online training course and guide your patients towards better health and wellbeing, especially where there has been limited improvement with other interventions.
Fitgenes is pleased to partner with CTG Education to provide Fitgenes accredited practitioners with the resources to take the next step in their professional development and understanding of the application of nutrigenomics in clinical practice
Foundations in Nutrigenomics Course compliments the foundations of the Fitgenes Accreditation workshop training,
Many courses focus only on methylation, while others look only at SNPs. This course is unique in that is aims to ‘future proof’ students by providing them with the skills needed to continue researching and learning within the rapidly-evolving field of nutrigenomics.

Health practitioners need to engage with their patients in the Nutrigenomics conversation. Having the knowledge and tools to translate it into clinical practice will lay the foundation for personalised nutrition.
