Excluding alternative Diagnosis that could be causing fatigue via DNA

One aspect of DNA is that it can also inform you of conditions that you have a high risk of. Often symptoms overlap and some MDs have been known to give a CFS or FM diagnosis to either satisfy the patient or to avoid going into an area that they lack expertise in.  CFS with no cure, no pro-forma treatment and no definitive diagnostic test is an ideal box for some MDs to drop patients that they do not wish to be bothered with or are clueless on how to proceed.

Originally 23AndMe did health reports. They were stopped by the FDA for a while. Fortunately, the internet being what it is, alternative sites has popped up which will produce such reports. One of these sites LiveWello is what I will look at today.

  • https://livewello.com
  • They charge $19.95 to do the processing (unlike the site in the prior posts that asks for donations)

NOTE: DNA does not say you have or have not something — it indicates only if you have higher or lower odds of having a condition. We are still very early in the learning curve on DNA


I am without any issues here — which is good. If you are also green AND have problems, the issue may be the gut bacteria that you have – which is very changeable.

Clotting Factors

As before, lots of risk (as reported by Dave Berg at Hemex Labs back in 1991). If you go thru the rsID of this chart and the ones in yesterday post, you will see that there are both additional ones and missing ones. My post was looking at the latest PubMed data which appear to have not been included (yet) into this report.

Thyroid issues are common in CFS — in my case, I am clear of risk factors

Again, another area that I am clear of risk factors

In my next post, I will look at other reports where the news is not so good…
