I visited a Naturopath today and gave her my DNA results from 23andMe. She sent me these interesting results using this company (www.puregenomics.ca):
COMT - You may have difficulty metabolizing estrogens and certain neurotransmitters.
FUT2 - This SNP may reduce risk of B12 deficiency, but it may also reduce the numbers of friendly bacteria in your digestive tract.
BCMO1 - This SNP reduces the body’s ability to make vitamin A from dietary beta carotene.
GC -Studies have linked this SNP with lower vitamin D levels, even with adequate dietary intake and/or sunlight exposure.
ANKK1/DRD2 - Associated with lower dopamine receptor activity and increased susceptibility to reward-seeking behaviors
DRD2 - Lower dopamine levels *for this gene they listed 3 other DRD2 genes (rs6277, rs1076560, rs2283265) and they all listed lower dopamine.
FAAH - Use caution with THC use, which is more likely to become habitual in carriers of this variant.
TNF alpha - The A allele is associated with increased TNF-α expression.
IL - 6 - The G allele is associated with increased cellular production of IL-6
CYP2R1 - The G allele (a red or yellow result) is associated with lower circulating vitamin D levels.
FADS1 - Reduced ability to convert omega-3 fatty acid precursors (linolenic acid from flaxseed oil and other plant sources) to active omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA).
Intergenic - More likely to benefit from higher dietary vitamin E intake
SLC30A8 - The A allele may influence glucose homeostasis. Zinc has been shown to modify this effect
These were all of my yellow and red genes. Red meaning +/+ for the gene expression. DRD2, FUT2, FAAH. IL-6, SLC30A8 and CYP2R1 were all Red for me.
What do you guys think? It looks like a lot of these issues look PFS in nature. Low dopamine, high estrogen, increased inflammation, altered gut microbes, intolerance to b12, low vitamin d, low vitamin A.
