Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    Ooh hello, anyone know what else I can look out for that is symptomatic of CYP450 deficiencies without actually getting tested?

    Shouldn't CFSsufferers who are intolerant to chemicals or have had an adverse reaction to medication eg antibiotics,anabolic or contraceptive steroids(such as myself)also be tested since the cytochrome p-450 enzymes break down medications and other chemicals that need to be eliminated from the body?I have had adverse reactions to antibiotics and to contraceptive steroids,I suspect that I and other CFSsufferers may have undiagnosed liver damage that affects the body's ability to eliminate xenobiotics.I am not insured and I cannot afford to have genetic testing done.I am also wondering if it would serve any purpose even if it turned out that I have a mutation or polymorphisms since researchers are focused on their ideas and theories.I would probably be able to announce it by starting a thread but unless there is some way of having testing done that is affordable to someone who does'nt have many resources I don't see the point unless soneone keeps track of those findings and follows up(eg liver biopsy since blood tests are not reliable in order to rule out liver disease/damage or other tests if genetic testing points out to another organ/system being affected).
