    hi, there are no stickies in this forum. Can someone explain where to start? I have 23andMe results (got in just before the end) but I don't really know what to do with them.

    Thanks so much.

    PS, I can look at specific genes, but I don't know what to look up. I specifically wanted to find my MTHFR results, and I found that gene but there seem to be dozens of SNPs for it.

    You can upload your file at http://geneticgenie.org/ to get the Yasko-type results, though many of them aren't accurate. There's also my rare genes analysis program at http://sourceforge.net/projects/analyzemygenes/ . The 1% file can be good for looking at extremely rare results which are occasionally pathogenic: the homozygous and "i" number results tend to be the most interesting.

    It's more work, but if you have time and not money, you can look at other people's results and find which rs numbers to look up. Here's my GG results, but this was before they got the VDR Taq and Bsm straightened out, so I'm actually +/+ for Taq, not Bsm. Look stuff up by rs numbers on 23andMe, and see if you're + or -. People post livewello, genetic genie, and mthfr.com results that you can use like this.
