More about APOA5

Your FitnessGenes result tells you whether you carry none, one or two versions of a particular gene variant that has been associated with higher levels of triglycerides in the blood when eating a particular diet. This gene is connected to the levels of APOA5 in the bloodstream. Those with lower levels of the APOA5 molecule have an increased risk of high triglyceride levels in the bloodstream when consuming a high polyunsaturated fat diet. This has been confirmed by several research studies.
