The investigators hypothesize that compared to the provision of population-based dietary
advice, providing DNA-based dietary advice via personalized nutrigenomics testing (PNT) to 2
distinct patient populations (prediabetes patients and transplant recipients) will motivate
them to adopt healthier dietary habits, lead to greater fat loss, increased percent lean
mass and therefore improve health and quality of life outcomes for both patient populations.
