Your DNA Holds the Key to Regulate Blood Sugar Levels

Peel out the layers of your DNA genetic makeup to solve the gene puzzle linked to glucose metabolism, insulin sensitivity, and more. Understand how your body uniquely processes sugar. With these insights, you can adopt a diabetes management plan that syncs perfectly with your biology.

Unlock your Genetic Insights

Manage Type 2 Diabetes with 3X4 Genetics

Our DNA insights decode genetic influence over glucose regulation, insulin response and your individual genetic propensities . With this intel guiding your care, you can:


Personalize Your Eating Plan

Learn how your body metabolizes carbs and uses key nutrients. Follow a diet that helps to maintain stable blood sugar levels.


Exercise Right for Your Body

Discover which exercises are best suited for how your body manages blood sugar levels Pick the right workouts.


Stay Ahead of Complications

Be proactive. Assess your genetic odds to help prevent kidney issues, nerve damage and vision loss. Take measures informed by your DNA to get ahead of threats before they progress.

What Do We Test For?

Through our testing, we explore various genetic markers that influence your risk and management strategies for diabetes, such as:


Glucose Metabolism & Insulin Sensitivity

Genes impacting the glucose & insulin pathway may contribute to your ability to regulate your blood sugar levels efficiently, leading to insulin resistance (aka prediabetes) and, ultimately type 2 diabetes.


Fat Storage and Distribution

Learn how your genetics influence body fat distribution, which can further impact diabetes risk and management.


Inflammation and Oxidative Stress

Identify genetic variations impacting your inflammatory response ability to handle oxidative stress and metabolism of fatty acids – which play a key role in regulating inflammation. enabling informed lifestyle choices for optimal health.


Detoxification Pathways

Understand how your genes influence toxin elimination, allowing targeted diet and lifestyle adjustments to support efficient detoxification and minimize diabetes risk.



Discover how your genes influence the critical process of methylation, which impacts cell function, energy production, stress response, and more, potentially reducing your risk of developing diabetes.

Cholesterol Metabolism

Cholesterol Metabolism

Understand how your genes impact cholesterol metabolism and distribution, providing valuable insights for mitigating diabetes-related complications.

What’s Included in Your Test Reports?

Our report covers 36 metabolic pathways across 6 health categories.

3X4 Success Stories

Still unsure if 3X4 is right for you? Explore firsthand testimonials from our customers. Here’s what they had to say:

Profile Picture

Janel, 30



“I found out what my body was lacking and with the right dietitian, I now know what diet, exercise, and supplements my body needs.
➡ I lost 14 kgs
➡ I have way more energy
➡ My skin is radiant
➡ I sleep very well
➡ I am more focused and less overwhelmed
➡ Even my house is more organized.”

Profile Picture

Aaron, 50



“I learned how my body reacts to strength and speed training vs. longer/slower endurance training. With the 3X4 report I’ve better understood how my body was impacted with endurance training and fuelling types (protein vs. carbs) and diet inflammation issues such as gluten.”

Profile Picture




“I’ve never been petite. I’d go on a diet, lose weight, but I couldn’t maintain it. I always thought my willpower (or lack of it) was to blame. Only now, after my 3X4 experience, do I know there were lots of underlying reasons for my body’s resistance to weight loss. Since addressing them, I’ve lost 20 kilograms.”
