Mapmygenome launched a new low cost personal genomics test Sugargene recently. Sugargene is a personal genomics test to understand the genetic risk of type-2 diabetes and obesity, nutrigenetics and management options. With this test, Mapmygenome aims to bring about lifestyle changes that can help people achieve optimum health and save on expensive treatments.

Anu Acharya, CEO of Mapmygenome, said, "Most of us have at least one person in the family suffering from diabetes and have seen how it painfully attacks the rest of the body. Diabetes is preventable but intervention must be done early. We listened to our customers and ensured that Sugargene is affordable and will provide both fun facts as well as a plan to work on towards a healthier life. We aim to combat two greatest global epidemics of our time - obesity and type 2 diabetes."

Sugargene costs Rs 2,999. The test analyses DNA for genetic predisposition to type-2 diabetes and obesity; key traits related to nutrigenetics such as satiety levels, sugar cravings, and more and prevention and treatment options.
