You are Unique

Your phenotype is made up by the combination of your genes and interaction with your environment.

After decades of research at the Mayo Clinic, we have discovered a new way to classify obesity using each patient’s unique phenotype. Understanding your phenotype can help pinpoint what is driving your weight gain and limiting your ability to lose weight. The phenotype is the underpinning of your obesity; and now, we can identify it with a simple blood test.

PhenoTest™ is a blood test which measures your DNA as well as certain metabolites and hormones in your body that are related to obesity. Together, these biomarkers from the test can be used to identify your unique phenotype.*

What Others
are Saying

Angela Fitch, MD

Secretary/Treasurer Obesity Medical Association
Associate Director MGH Weight Center at Massachusetts General Hospital

Currently, we must choose therapy based on clinical history and trial and error.  If we had a way to expedite and predict best treatment this would guide our clinical decision making and provide better outcomes quicker with less time and money spent by the patient to accomplish their weight and health goals.  If the cost of testing replaces even one clinical visit for example then it is worth it as it may take us many visits and many months to find the best therapy. Having some guidance in this would facilitate the best care for the patient.

Craig Primack, MD

President-elect Obesity Medical Association
Co-director and co-founder of the Scottsdale Weight Loss Center in Scottsdale, Arizona

Like cancer care, we started out with "chemotherapy" based on area of the body affected.  Now with advanced cancer testing (genetic), we can tailor cancer therapies exactly to the patient affected.   If we were able to do that in obesity it would be invaluable. It would be the next revolution in obesity treatment.

Past President, American Association of Nurse Practitioners

If we can prove that the Phenomix Science blood test predicts response and helps direct choice of treatment, it would be transformative. Our current "trial and error" method of selecting therapies is clunky, to say the least. Instead of guessing which drug to prescribe and waiting 3 months to see if it works, the provider would have the information at hand to rationally choose a therapy and know in advance that there was a high likelihood of response.
