Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

    Yes, and before that the methylation panel from Yasko and before that the Genovation DetoxiGenomics...
    23andme includes most of the SNP´s that are analyzed in the others.

    If you can afford it, the two best tests are the 23andme for your genes and the Nutreval test for functional testing to see what's actually going on in your body. You get your results then run them through Geneticgenie.org to pull out the relevant genes.

    On the Nutreval test there is a nifty Kreb's cycle diagram, where you can see exactly where there are blocks and what is causing them. So then you know what to supplement and what to detox out. It's best to interpret the test with the Nutreval Intepretation Guide, which is a compilation of Rich Vank's interpretations.

    I have all that linked in my signature, plus many other useful links.

    So knowing what you know now you would recommend just the 23andMe test?

    There is a European version of the Nutreval, and I believe 23andme is also available internationally. So if you're in the UK, you should be covered.

    Yes, that worked.

    Yes, unfortunately, that is the price, but it's a good one if you can afford it.

    Cheers

    I like geneticgenie.org. It's free, but it's suggested that you give a $10 donation. The programmer is an ME/CFS patient and a member of this forum (kday), so the donation would go to a good cause - to keep this excellent app up and running.

    Trader Joe's has surprisingly cheap ubiquinol; it's a fairly "clean" supplement in terms of additives, too. (Think it has soybean oil but unless you're severely allergic that shouldn't be a problem in small amounts)

    I read on longecity that PQQ might work better sublingually (or at least it did for one or 2 members). It doesn't seem to do much for me but I accidentally ordered 3 bottles so I will be taking it for a while. Hopefully it has a cumulative effect.

    It's hard to say. Most of my symptoms are under control, including the debilitating fatigue (not sure if I can attribute it to this supplement specifically since I take so many things). But I still have pain, it's the only thing I cant seem to manage with supplements.
    Sorry I cant be more concrete.
