I got a Promethease report for $5 today. It is excellent and extensive!! It did not suggest my one MTHFR mutation was anything negative, I think it was in the green/good category!!

On the scary side, I have MANY, MANY genes that predispose me to every autoimmune disease in the book! (Probably 25 out of 120). It's a miracle I don't have Crohn's, Type 1 diabetes, RA and Lupus. Seriously.

I do have some lovely longevity genes, and I can't properly metabolize NSAIDS and warfarin (that was interesting). I can taste bitterness, which makes coffee and beer taste bitter and makes me eat healthier (woohoo!). I also don't get too stimulated by caffeine (boo-I noticed that! Clearly my borderline narcoleptic dad gave me the gene) And genetically I'm a sprinter with muscles that lack endurance (I noticed that too!). I am also at risk of myopathy if I ever take statins (no thanks!). And I'm not predisposed to migraines (knew that too!) As far as all the genetic diseases, I'm not prone to anything dreadful. Lots of heart disease, cancer, parkinsons, schizophrenia mentions, but the bad ones seem to be cancelled out by way more good ones. I'm immune from Prion diseases, so I can eat all the brains I want!

Fascinating stuff!!

Here's an interesting read on MTHFR, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome-hypermobile type, mast cell disease, etc.
