With India’s diabetes burden expected to cross the 100 million mark by 2030, in a study by The International Diabetes Federation (IDF), the country is likely to face one of its toughest struggles to maintain good health of its people. Understanding the need for a preventive solution to India’s diabetic worries, XCODE Life Sciences, an expert in preventive healthcare, aims to educate India on how best to keep diabetes at bay though its scientific and personalized wellness program, LIFELONG WELLNESS.

Armed with an answer to curb the growing diabetic population, XCODE is offering a simple yet highly effective DNA-based preventive healthcare program – LIFELONG WELLNESS.

LIFELONG WELLNESS is a scientific, personalized wellness program for individuals based on DNA analysis of a saliva sample. The program analyzes a person’s genetic profile and determines if he/she is at high risk for chronic illnesses. Most importantly, the analysis also examines if that individual is a fast or slow metabolizer of fats and carbohydrates, hence aiding in customizing a nutrition plan, making this a unique offering. Based on these parameters a nutritional and fitness plan is designed to aid the individual in achieving long term good health though preventive measures.
