    23andme tests something like a million SNPs. We only need to look at 30 or so. There is a member on here (kday) who made a nifty webpage which pulls out the SNPs you need to know and presents them in a chart form like Yasko does. There is also an interpretation. It's called geneticgenie.org.

    Watch the Methylation Made Easy videos (link in my signature) which shows you exactly how to do it. I also have links to 23andme and geneticgenie. When you use geneticgenie, please send kday a donation if you can afford it, so he can keep the site up and running.

    Your other option is to get your SNPs done by Amy Yasko. That's about $500. The advantage is it will have all the SNPs (some are missing from 23andme), and an interpretation by Dr. Amy. Also it's a blood test which is considered to be more accurate than a saliva test like 23andme. Most people opt for 23andme due to finances.

    Bless you! That sounds much more manageable. I can do that. :) Thanks so much! I"ll look into ordering the test right away.

    Seriously! I've spent thousands at least in the last year on supplements that didnt agree with me.

    Do you know if the results are faster from Dr Yasko than 23andme?

    I think Yasko runs about 8 weeks and 23andme is running about 6 weeks since they started their $99 promotion.

    Thank you!

    I have trouble with videos. Can you (or anyone) recommend a basic intro in text form? I have read some of the pinned threads.

    "Living Wellness" can help you out. They charge $50 to go over everything. If you are on FB, like their page and send Thane a message. He is going over mine right now. He is really nice and always gets back to me.

    I don't have the time to learn all of this. I am not a doctor and I will learn only so much. IT's too much for me to take in right now, so you are not alone.

    I had the same feeling when I first started here . . . "what *language* are these experts speaking, anyway!" But within a few weeks you pick up the language if you really need to . . .

    I'm in "research mode" so decided to at least start on a project to try to create some other SNP panels. Basically I'm looking at the enzymes involved in Krebs Cycle, ATP production, use of glucose, fats, proteins, etc. The good news is that finding the genes involved is pretty easy, and 23andMe is testing plenty of SNPs involved in those genes.

    I'm still compiling a list of the relevant tested SNPs, which is extremely tedious. And I have no idea how much data is available regarding how those sepecific SNPs effect the expression of the involved genes. But maybe something useful will come out of it :D

    I ordered the test from 23andme! I'm excited but I guess it takes several weeks to get back.

    Wow and more power to ya. Let us know what you find out. At your convenience, of course, no time pressure.

    Sterling Hill at MTHFRsupport.com has done a lot of work on the detox SNPs.
