International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Beginning to wonder how do you address a null glutathione gene with precursers if there is no gene? Am I not understanding this? Had the detoxigenomic test a over a few years ago and it just hit me, the gene is missing? Wouldn't adding precursers (high doses?) possibly cause more problems? Then, how does methylation impact glutathione genes and visa versa? Are there more glutathione genes than are tested on the detoxigenomic test? Not sure this post belongs here or in a methylation thread, so posted in both..

    Does 23andme report more glutathione genes/snps? Thank you!

    Tagging on to your question, I just received my 23andMe results. Since I have SNP reported on GSTM1, am I to assume that the gene is present and not absent?

    23andMe currently reports 20 SNP on GSTP1 and 7 SNP on GSTM1.
