Has anyone compiled, or started compiling, a list of SNPs associated with changes that might have relevance for assessing one's likely benefit from CR?


Increasingly, we read about a study showing that a certain variant is associated with a different degree of benefit from reduced energy intake. In most cases, of course, the study involves obese subjects. Nonetheless, the information obtained from such studies could be useful. I was thinking, for ex., of a paper Al recent posted:


Polymorphism of neuropeptide Y gene rs16147 modifies the response to a hypocaloric diet on cardiovascular risk biomarkers and adipokines.

de Luis DA, Izaola O, de la Fuente B, Primo D, Aller R.

J Hum Nutr Diet. 2016 Sep 7. doi: 10.1111/jhn.12406. [Epub ahead of print]

PMID: 27599771


With a large enough list of these variations, someone on the fence about CR might be able to have some useful information about whether s/he could benefit.
