So they had a freebie and I did it. Got a long, long report with several contradictions. (At risk for this, in another place, no risk). But generally all is pretty correct. Long life. (My mom lived to 102). High BP, gout, arthritis, late age dementia, no Parkinsons, breast cancer +(yes I had it) and some highly technical stuff I will have to look up.

Was a good diversion while I wait for the plumber to fix the toilet. Anyone else do it? Or is everyone else not wanting to know?

Mine had 12 different indicators for various kinds of cancer. (Everyone else in my family has already died of various cancers.) It also said I would have a later-in-life sudden peanut allergy. (Yep, I did.)

Wish I could have gotten the long life one. But on the plus side, nothing about blood pressure, gout, dementia or anything else.

Oh you are lucky. Several things, like macular degeneration and stroke also in my genes. And I am NOT the O blood type. Guess that's an anomaly too. Whatever that means.... I was going to send it to my son, but I think he would freak out and tell me I probably gave him all that stuff in his genes. He is a health nut.

My eyes color are wrong at Promethease, I have light brown eyes, but Promethease says I have blue eyes.

Most probably, you have several genes associated with eye color and some of them say blue, some say brown. What it means is you have genes for blue eyes but since this is a recessive gene and you also got genes for brown eyes and brown eyes are dominant, you have brown eyes. My reports are the same way. It doesn't make Promethease "wrong" - you're probably just not interpreting it correctly. Make sure you click on "2x more" at the bottom to be sure you've seen ALL the reports for that topic, and also click on and read the "more info" link when possible.

The magnitude will give you some idea about which one might be more important when you have contradictory reports. The higher the magnitude, the more noteworthy it should be: https://www.snpedia.com/index.php/Magnitude - However, you should definitely take it to a doctor for a better explanation.

Sometimes, I even use the slider bar on the right to filter out any magnitudes under 2 or 3, if I want to see the most important reports. They are less contradictory that way. If I untick "not set" and increase the magnitude to 3, I get 25 reports. Only one is "good", lol.

Definitely click on the "more info" link when available and read through the info. Sometimes it's too technical but sometimes it can be informative and include other associated conditions not listed in the summary.

You are assuming I want more in depth information on this stuff. LOL I think I will stop at what I have gotten so I don't scare myself to death. All of it is "iffy" anyway and whether it happens or not, it's up to the will of God, not me.

Ok, thanks.
Two of my grand parents have blue eyes.

Thanks so much! I was just telling my sister in law about the site yesterday.

Does anyone know if they do Cystic Fibrosis? Want to have my daughters nana tested to see if she carries the gene. Her oldest daughter carries the gene but she has a different father then my ex, so we're trying to figure out where it came from.

Yes, Promethease has Cystic Fibrosis analysis of your data.
Here is what I got. My Rs213950 (A;G) slight chance
rs213950, a SNP in the cystic fibrosis CFTR gene, has been reported in a large study to be associated with type-1 diabetes. In an expanded follow-up study of >6,000 controls and 6,000 patients, the heterozygote odds ratio for this SNP was recalculated to be 1.09 (CI 1.04–1.15). [OMIM:CFTR POLYMORPHISM] ... more info...
