John gets a call from his doctor after routine blood work. His Cholesterol numbers are higher than normal. The doctor asked him about his usual eating habits and activities. He then recommended changes like cutting down on his red meat, adding more vegetables and increasing his activities as few things to start to slow down the progression and get control over the cholesterol numbers.
Whereas Ramesh walks into the doctor’s office with the similar elevated numbers the doctor realizes quickly that his dietary habits are not the same as John as Ramesh is a vegetarian already and his BMI and weight are normal for his age and height as well. The doctor has to dig in deeper to find out more on his food habits, lifestyle, his ancestry to come up with a plan which was way different from John.
