Title: Nutrigenomics in controlling Cardiovascular disease


Epidemiological data support the view that the leading cause of death is cardiovascular disease (CVD) throughout the world. Obesity and CVD have linked complicated mechanisms which is controlled by genetic and environmental factors including diet. Nutrition is an environmental factor and it has a vital role in managing the health by preventing the obesity and obesity-related diseases, including CVD. Patients to patients a marked variation was observed even by following the same dietary pattern. This variation explains the genetic polymorphisms, which develop the concept of nutrigenetics. Nutritional genomics or nutrigenetics is the field of science, detects the variations in genetic responses. It is associated with specific nutrients and relating their differential responses towards various diseases, like CVD related to obesity. Personalized diet recommendations, based on the knowledge of an individual’s genetic constitutions, might improve the health condition which is a new approach in reducing obesity and obesity related CVD. Literature suggested that genes encoding miRNA, APOB, PCSK-9, SORT1, Cytokines and IFN-ƴ are strongly associated with the development and progression of CVDs. Therefore, genetic testing should be widely implemented. The aim of this presentation that how nutrigenomics helps to detect the risk factor and develop new prevention strategies, and it improve the quality of life through personalized nutrition2E
