DETAILED ANCESTRY RESULTS NOW, YAY!!! FORGET ABOUT 23& ME TEST! This test has everything & MORE!!!
So I have done both tests...this one & 23&me. This test is BY FAR more detailed & contains WAY MORE INFORMATION!!! The ancestry information for instance...this test has 3 diff Russian groups, 6 diff Pakistan, 5 diff Chinese...and that's just what I noticed at a glance!
My 23&me test results were interesting, I did that test first, I had NO clue as to what 'mix' I am. But the results were really very generalized. This test was just amazing! VERY detailed & gives you information about the group of people found in your ancestry.
The results were similar to 23&me, but I found that 23&me had a lot of %'s noted in vast areas & then they would say 'DNA found, but not able to determine exactly which ethnic group'. That didn't happen with Tell me Gen! They tell you where your DNA comes from, LOVE IT!!! THANK YOU!!! 23&me does hook you up with relatives & Tell me Gen does not, but IT’S IN THE WORKS, YEAH!!!
I want to touch on the safety & security...TellmeGen is a testing company that is controlled by surgeons & other doctors. You tick on one box stating if you want your DNA to go on for scientific purposes, NO FINE PRINT, UNLIKE 23&ME! PLEASE GOOGLE THIS, it’s a serious consequence, especially if you ever plan on applying for life insurance, currently have life insurance or could effect health insurance! I would post links about recent sales 23&Me have done, but the main focus of this review is how beneficial TellmeGen is, bottom line, they are interested in the health of people & helping. I have personally spoken with the CEO of TellmeGen several times, he’s always been quick to answer my questions.
On to the drug results (6 pages)...this test will tell you how so many different drugs metabolize in your body! You can take this test with you to the dr & actually use it for future use, or look at what drugs you are on now & see if there is a better drug you could be on! That's actually pretty awesome! If you have cancer...there are a TON of cancer drugs listed, which I found to be really interesting & thought could actually be a life saver!
There was 3 pages of TRAITS!!! And they weren't just stupid nonsense traits either...Alcohol addiction, Caffeine & Anxiety, Drug Abuse, Memory, Gambling Behavior, Sex hormone regulation, Pain sensitivity, Stature...the list goes on & on!!! LOVED IT!!!
Inherited Conditions- 4 pages- These are diseases & such you could have inherited....Breast & Ovarian Cancers, Cystic Fibrosis, Gaucher disease, so many things I've never heard of, nor can pronounce, extremely detailed!
Complex Diseases- 7 PAGES!!!
It lists these in categories in which you are at high risk, low risk & typical risk.
There are SO MANY interesting & important diseases listed!!!
Heart Attack, Diabetes, Crohn's, Gout, Thyroid Cancer, Alcohol w/d Seizures, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Periodontitis, Allergic Asthma, Psoriasis, Autism, Narcolepsy, NUMEROUS types of Breast Cancers, Parkinson's, Depression, Cataracts, Pancreatic Cancer...THERE'S SO MANY, I WISH I COULD LIST THEM ALL!!!
We have tested several family members b/c of serious illnesses, & b/c the medication information has proven to be so very important already!! We even tested my 1 y/o grandson. YES, the baby to see what it shows & also see what vaccinations he could have reactions to....or could possibly react to when given at the same time. I have found this test to be PRICELESS!!!
Do you have something going on that you or your Dr can’t figure out? Do you have cancer & you’re not responding well to the medication? Do you have cancer in your family? TAKE THIS TEST!!!
My husband was born with a congenital heart defect, NO SYMPTOMS! His brother got sick & they accidentally found the defective aortic valve in his heart. My husband was tested & he had it as well, THIS TEST SHOWED THAT HE WAS LIKELY BORN WITH IT!!! Simply amazing! Another example, my husband has these spots on his face & ear that hurt & won’t heal...the test showed pics & described the spots to a tee...skin cancer!
I could keep going about things we’ve discovered on all of us between physical problems to medication problems, honestly, you won’t truly believe it until you test yourself! We, luckily, found this test in time to get the skin cancer taken care of before it causes problems & can monitor other issues....I hope others can do the same...SECURELY!!!
I have included photos of test results, not from the same person for personal reasons, but look at what you get for your money & they are always adding more FOR FREE!!!
NO PASSPORT NEEDED TO DO THIS TEST FROM THE USA!
The test for the baby required proof from one of the parents, like a DL, stating their name, and something with the baby's name on it, my daughter in law used his birth card, or birth cert...I'm not sure which.
We got the pre-paid labels for UPS & send the kits in, very simple!
