23andme vs AncestryDNA plus Promethease – [updated Oct 2018] Oct 2018 Update adds Alzheimer’s section at end.I had DNA analysis from 23andme. My wife had DNA analysis from both Ancestry(Anc) and 23andme. This review is my comparison of the two. I highly recommend secondary analysis of your results by Promethease, see further discussion at end of this review. Basically I like 23andme. If 23andme offers a lower cost ancestry only test, this is OK. For developing an ancestry tree, Ancestry.com is MUCH better IF you signup separately for Ancestry’s subscription search service. Do not use Anc & Promethease for Alzheimer’s – see discussion at end of this review.TAKING TEST and SIGNUP – Very similar test taking. 23’s signup was more secure. Anc’s was easier, but they automatically put my wife’s test on my previously existing Ancestry account.Waiting on RESULTS – Both send emails confirming sample receipt and when results were available. After logon, 23 provided step by step progress reports on the…

SOLVED AN 83+ YEAR OLD MYSTERY OF MY GRANDFATHER’S IDENTITY The testing is fairly simple: You receive a test vial (log in and register it on their website) and provide saliva up to the control line. Make sure you don’t eat or drink for 30 to 45 minutes before providing your saliva sample. It is best not to brush teeth beforehand since it will only wash away valuable DNA and you want to ensure your sample has enough to process. Yes I had a few failed kits in my life and that set us back months of getting results on those kits. Anyway it’s fairly simple to provide saliva samples. Simple enough I had my 5 1/2 year old done and she was the easiest one to process. Then you place the kit back into included return envelope and wait for about 6 to 8 weeks for it to process. All while keeping tabs of the process online as each step finishes.I started using 23andme in 2012 before the FDA had gotten nasty and demanded they stop providing such detailed health analysis. Most of the kits I purchased (all but 2) included the ancestry with health…

The Reason Behind the Mixed Reviews This DNA test from 23andMe gives you a huge amount of raw data. If you’re looking for medical information (not just ancestry), you are getting your money’s worth. However, due to FDA regulations, they aren’t allowed to interpret it for you beyond some very basic (and frankly unhelpful) reports. This is true for all DNA testing companies when it comes to medical information. The good news is that you can upload your 23andMe data to other websites and receive detailed reports. Promethease.com gives you detailed reporting for just $5 – everything from vulnerabilities to diseases, to genes associated with personality traits. Another commenter mentioned the MTHFR mutations, which are associated with many chronic illnesses. Geneticgenie.org will run your 23andMe results specifically related to these genes, and the report is free. And if you can afford it, the best way to interpret your results is to make an appointment with a genetic counselor, who you can find through NSGC.org. So, you’re…
