    I'm curious if there are snps related to lung or breathing issues. If so, what would make them happy and healthy again?

    Long story short ..... I bought a little house a few years ago, and recently found out an air duct was completely off the vent. Apparently, I've been breathing dust, schmutz (and who knows what else!) for 3+ years. A Pulmonologist couldn't decide if I had asthma or copd, but wants to put me on heavy duty meds. No, thank you.

    If there's something in my data that would show I needed a little help/support with lung health, I'd love to know what to do.

    Thank you,
    Wintering

    Look up alpha 1 anti-trypsin deficiency. That was the only inherited lung weakness that showed up in my genes. Sorry, no time to find the rs#. I think it also affects the liver.
