Abstract

The Role of Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics in Clinical Nutrition Practice AMANDA ARCHIBALD, RD YAEL JOFFE, PHD, RD, FACN The completion of the Human Genome Project development, it also needs to be understood in in 2003 enabled scientists and clinicians to the context of all clinical assessment. gain a deeper understanding of an individual’s This article provides a commentary of the biochemical individuality. Genomic information relevance and clinical value of the science has the potential to guide clinical insights into of nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics and also potential nutrient efficiencies and inefficiencies. highlights the scientific rigor that must be applied Although it contributes to nutrition care plan when choosing genetic tests to use in practice. It 34 // ADCES IN PRACTICE // March 2021 the following (1) nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics, (2) monogenic and polygenic, and (3) low penetrance and high penetrance. Differentiating Nutrigenetics From Nutrigenomics There is little consensus on the terminology for nutritional genomics, but it is important that the terms nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics are clearly differentiated for the clinician and for the purpose of this commentary. In this article we use the term nutritional genomics to mean both Nutrigenetics nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics. Each is defined in the following. describes
