The world's largest faculty of nursing”
Nutrigenetics allows us to understand how genetic variants influence metabolism. Do not hesitate any longer and become a Postgraduate Diploma in this field"
This Postgraduate Diploma details everything a healthcare practitioner needs to know about Nutrigenomics and Precision Nutrition, taking into account aspects related to nutrigenetics. Thus, the material is organized in such a way as to advance knowledge without leaving doubts or gaps in information. It is the best training on the market, because it offers the opportunity to know and learn online all the new developments in the field of genomic nutrition.
This Postgraduate Diploma introduces the student to Nutrigenetics, its basis, the interaction between genetic variability and diet, and how population genetics is being applied in the field of nutrition.
In addition, the key polymorphisms that exist to date related to nutrition and human metabolic processes are presented, as well as those related to complex and chronic diseases related to nutrition and dietary habits, such as type II diabetes, hypertension, cancer, hyperlipidemia and arteriosclerosis.
The main SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) that the healthcare practitioner will be able to use in their clinical practice are also analyzed in depth and the key studies that give scientific support to these SNPs are analyzed, presenting how this tool could prevent both the appearance and recurrence of these diseases, laying the foundations for genomic and preventive nutrition.
As it is an online Postgraduate Diploma, the student is not conditioned by fixed schedules or the need to move to another physical location, but can access the contents at any time of the day, balancing their work or personal life with their academic life.
