Today I did my spit test for 23andMe. I'll mail it off this week and I should have results in a couple of months.
If you're not familiar with 23andMe, it is a service that helps people take a look at their 23 chromosomes. For me, it is my first step in looking at my genetics to try to get some predictive health patterns. Armed with this sort of information, my doctor and I can have more productive conversations about my health. I do not expect 23andMe to provide me answers to all of my genetics questions, but I do believe it is a good first step in the process.
