NMC Genetics Partners with Artivatic to build innovative solutions for insurance and preventive healthcare
Bengaluru, Karnataka (May 21, 2020) – [ARTIVATIC DATA LABS PRIVATE LIMITED], the owner of [ARTIVATIC INSURTECH / https://www.artivatic.ai/home], is pleased to announce today that Artivatic has joined hands with NMC Genetics (https://www.nmcgenetics.com/) to build innovative solutions for insurance and health sector to provide preventive healthcare, wellness, risk underwriting with the combination of Genomics, AI & Data Analytics.
Govind Adireddi, CEO of NMC Genetics said for this partnership as, “We are excited to partner with Artivatic. Solutions from Artivatic are very complementary to the genetic tests provided by NMC Genetics. The data analytics and AI platform from Artivatic drastically improves the solutions for preventive healthcare. The combination of AI with advanced genomics is what needed to detect conditions early which means we can do something to prevent or manage better the conditions before they happen.
Most of us ask these questions to themselves, am I at risk of any cardio problems, will I get diabetes, I gain weight even when I am eating so less, confused whether the weight gain is because of fats or carbs, struggling to choose the right combination of supplements? Are you intolerant to gluten? Are you prone to injury and pigmentation? Still figuring out how to tackle such issues? A simple saliva-based test to extract your DNA can answer to the above questions.
Genetics has advanced so much that no one can now sequence all 3.2 billion bases of DNA. DNA sequencing has advanced in ways to identify individual genetic mutations, it is now possible to know what is happening in your body before health conditions develop and also know how a person metabolizes vitamins, minerals and medicines. This means that we can do something to prevent or manage better these conditions before they happen. For example, Vit D deficiency even after consuming a balanced diet. Certain mutations in the genes can reduce the efficiency to produce the important enzymes which help to create Vit D. Knowing this will help individuals and practitioners to identify which food and quantity will help maintain the Vit D levels. This information also helps in choosing the right supplements. Specific variations in gene MTHFR lead to high homocysteine levels and low metabolism of folate in the body. Individuals with these specific mutations in MTHFR need methyl folate supplement because their bodies cannot convert folates to methyl folate. If folate breakdown does not happen then it leads to higher homocysteine levels which in turn leads to atherosclerotic vascular diseases or thrombosis. With Artivatic we can build next-gen health-related products that impacts millions and also help them provide right insurance based on their needs”
