If you've tested at 23andme's site, I wanted to list some SNP's that scientists have associated with certain traits and see what we all have. Also if you want to do an extended share at the website, just PM me and I'll give you a link to my profile on there.
Note: If you've got an issue with genetics or are concerned about what governments or insurance companies could do with that data, then make a new thread. I'm just saying this now so that you all know off topic posts will be reported. Don't take it personally. I just don't want to this thread clogged up with a philosophical or morality debate. Thanks for understanding...
Rs53576 GG=more empathetic.
Another study has shown those with GG are more giving to charities. AA's feel a commitment to civic duty like jury duty and paying taxes. They also perceive the world as a "threat"...LOL
I am AA here, which is surprising considering my personality type is INFJ. Supposedly that type is the most empathetic.
Associated with alcohol cravings
Rs1799971 GG=more cravings.
I am AA. I drink alcohol like once a year. lol
Caffeine Metabolism (also known as Cytochrome P450 1A2 CYP1A2. This metabolizes medicines too.)
rs762551=For each C, slower liver metabolism.
I am CC on this one.
Rs4988235 GG=Less likely to digest milk
Rs182549 CC=Less likely to digest milk
If you have both, then it's quite likely you are lactose intolerant.
I am GG and CC. I already knew I was lactose intolerant. It makes me feel so sick and NO raw milk does not help. Every time I post about lactose intolerance someone always comes in and tells me to drink raw milk, so I'm prefacing that with this comment...LOL If you still post about raw milk, you give me permission to smack you down.
Celiac Disease (unable to digest wheat)
Rs2187668= For each T, increases risk. This is testing for HLA-DRB1*0301.
rs6822844= For each G, increases risk.
rs6441961= For each T, increases risk.
Rs2074404=GG Seen in higher rate in those with Celiac
I am CC, GG, CC and GG.
rs713598=CC Cannot taste certain bitter foods
CC. Didn't know I couldn't taste this...lol
Factor V Lieden. Increases risk for blood clots.
rs6025 =Any T allele in this one means you have it. It is recessive.
CC. I don't have it.
Increased risk for ALS
rs12608932=For each C increases your risk
rs2814707=For each T increases your risk
AA and TT
I also created this spreadsheet for those interested in Dr. Amy Yasko's Methylation SNP's. You can use this spreadsheet to help you convert your 23andme data into Yasko's +/- notations for easier comparing to others who have taken her test.
