Personalized Dietary Recommendations Based on Lipid-Related Genetic Variants: A Systematic Review.
Pérez-Beltrán Yolanda E et al. Frontiers in nutrition 2022 4 830283

Findings included in this systematic review indicated that a certain percentage of dietary macronutrients, the consumption of specific amounts of polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fatty acids, as well as the ingestion of nutraceuticals or dietary supplements could be considered as potential strategies for the development of a wide range of nutrigenetic interventions since they have a direct impact on the blood levels of lipids.

Opportunities to integrate nutrigenomics into clinical practice and patient counseling
D Roosan et al, EJCN, April 20, 2022

We identified four main themes: inadequate training, lack of awareness, underdeveloped nutrigenomics counseling skills, and unreliable evidence-based practice information. Many clinicians did not have the necessary knowledge to perform nutrigenomic counseling and were unaware of the available scientific information source. Moreover, there are no guidelines in the scientific community to counsel patients on nutrigenomics testing.
