    Hi,
    Yesterday I ran my genetic testing through 23andme and noticed I am GG on Gene rs1800629 which is the gene responsible for tumor necrosis factor-alpha .

    I have been told just because i have the gene mutation it does not mean the gene is active and I need to now follow up with laboratory tests to see if I even need to worry about this or not... but the symptoms sure resonate with all that I have been suffering with so I want to test myself to see if I have excess TNF-a .... what is the name of the lab test? anyone know? (If I know the name, I can ask my Dr. to write up the lab work for me)

    Thank you so much,
    Peyt

    GG is the normal version. And it's not actually on the TNF gene, just near it.
