Vitamin B12 is one of the most frequently prescribed treatments in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) yet it is not uncommon
for it to perform poorly or even to have negative effectsthus. Here Fred provides some of the reasons he believes B12 does not sometimes work in ME/CFS

Taking It in Tablet Form- Active b12 is taken as an oral tablet reducing its absorbtion to below 1%. A 1000mcg active b12 oral tablet might bind as much as 10mcg of b12. Again the b12 has to be squeezed through a keyhole that limits the amount and is subject to ... ..more

What does the Livewello Gene App do?

  2 years, 7 months ago

The Raw Data you receive from 23andMe can be translated by Livewello for a 1-time fee of $19:95. LiveWello is unique because it gives users much more than just a 900 SNP Gene report: LiveWello will give you your report for 600,000 SNPs, AND attaches 11 resources for learning to each Gene.

Updates are FREE for Livewello users: Free updates are crucial as it allows users get their results for new SNPs when 23andMe adds new SNPS to your raw data during their Chip updates. It is also crucial for when new research is added to information about ... ..more

Since a software application doesn't know your unique symptoms, your other functional lab levels and a host of your other important health variables, it would be unsafe for it to dispense a safe treatment plan without this information. What you'll need next is ... ..more

You have been diagnosed with a chronic health condition. Your genetic information will help you determine which genes or biochemical pathways were altered to result in that health condition. Getting to the root cause, will help facilitate recovery by tailoring any treatment plans and lifestyle changes your Doctor recommends specifically to your body.

Several members of your family live with one or several chronic health issues. Genetic information will help your family uncover the inherited Gene sequence patterns that contribute to the chronic illnesses plaguing them.

You plan to have a baby: Research is implicating certain genetic mutations in a ... ..more

A Standard Gene Report with information looks like this:  https://livewello.com/snps/... This sample contains some useful info worth sharing with your Doctor.

1) When your Gene report is created, click the Gene itself (or the "i" icon in a Template). Livewello will link 12 Learning Resources directly to each of the Genes in your report. They are: Medline, GHR, Google Scholar, dbSNP, Ensembl, Wiki Genes, SNPedia Wiki Genes, Malacards and PubMed. If the info is not readily available, re-enter your gene name or health condition into that resource's search box to check if any further information is ... ..more

Physicians don't always know what to do with your genetic information because epigenetics and pharmacogenomics are relatively new fields, and everyone is trying to catch up.  Also Traditional/Allopathic physicians have very limited time in which to  go over all the information that you hand over to them, so the best way to present them with new information like this, is to share a link to your Report and make sure you tell them to read the associated medical references that come with your App. For instance, every Gene in the LiveWello Gene App report is directly linked to ... ..more

What are RefSNP Alleles?

  3 years, 3 months ago

RefSNP alleles are the alleles submitted by genetic researchers for a particular SNP. for example CBS C699T has RefSNPs A/G. This means that the researcher found A on one chromosome strand and G on the other, at the gene location for CBS C699T.

RefSNP Alleles for a particular gene location in a genome build, are submitted to dbSNP by multiple genetic researchers. Each SNP will usually only have two RefSNP alleles. When different researchers submit conflicting information about RefSNP alleles, then it is possible for more than 2 alleles to be listed for one SNP, making it more difficult ... ..more

Genome wide association studies as a methodology for studying complex genetic traits in humans - successes and limitations
Genome Wide Association Studies were first proposed in the mid-1990s as a way to study association between human genetic polymorphisms and complex, multigenic traits. Rather than measure all genetic variation present in each individual, approximately one million Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) are assayed as genetic landmarks, and scored for association with the trait of interest. Based on linkage disequilibrium, genes in close proximity to associated SNP landmarks are potential candidates for further investigation.

This technique is well-suited to identify susceptibility genes that are ... ..more

Blank or missing SNPs on your #Livewello report could be due to any of the following: 

1) The raw data was prepared by a genotype chip that did not contain those missing SNPs. For example In Novenber 2013, 23andMe changed the chip they use in processing genetic raw data. Even though the #LiveWello App still works with the old Chip(s), the number of SNPs on the current V4 Chip decreased from 9000,000 to 600,000 SNPs. This decrease in reported SNPs, affects anyone that returned their test kit as of Nov/Dec 2013. Since Livewello can only generate ... ..more

What is pharmacogenomics?

  3 years, 6 months ago

Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genes affect a person’s response to drugs. This relatively new field combines pharmacology (the science of drugs) and genomics (the study of genes and their functions) to develop effective, safe medications and doses that will be tailored to a person’s genetic makeup.

Many drugs that are currently available are “one size fits all,” but they don’t work the same way for everyone. It can be difficult to predict who will benefit from a medication, who will not respond at all, and who will experience negative side effects (called adverse drug reactions ... ..more

Genome-wide association studies are a relatively new way for scientists to identify genes involved in human disease. This method searches the genome for small variations, called single nucleotide polymorphisms or SNPs (pronounced “snips”), that occur more frequently in people with a particular disease than in people without the disease. Each study can look at hundreds or thousands of SNPs at the same time. Researchers use data from this type of study to pinpoint genes that may contribute to a person’s risk of developing a certain disease.

Because genome-wide association studies examine SNPs across the genome, they represent a promising ... ..more

When a genetic disorder is diagnosed in a family, family members often want to know the likelihood that they or their children will develop the condition. This can be difficult to predict in some cases because many factors influence a person’s chances of developing a genetic condition. One important factor is how the condition is inherited. For example:

Autosomal dominant inheritance: A person affected by an autosomal dominant disorder has a 50 percent chance of passing the mutated gene to each child. The chance that a child will not inherit the mutated gene is also 50 percent (illustration).

Autosomal ... ..more

Statistical data can provide general information about how common a condition is, how many people have the condition, or how likely it is that a person will develop the condition. Statistics are not personalized, however—they offer estimates based on groups of people. By taking into account a person’s family history, medical history, and other factors, a genetics professional can help interpret what statistics mean for a particular patient.

Some statistical terms are commonly used when describing genetic conditions and other disorders. These terms include:

Common statistical terms
Incidence
The incidence of a gene mutation or a genetic disorder ... ..more

A genetic predisposition (sometimes also called genetic susceptibility) is an increased likelihood of developing a particular disease based on a person’s genetic makeup. A genetic predisposition results from specific genetic variations that are often inherited from a parent. These genetic changes contribute to the development of a disease but do not directly cause it. Some people with a predisposing genetic variation will never get the disease while others will, even within the same family.

Genetic variations can have large or small effects on the likelihood of developing a particular disease. For example, certain mutations in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 ... ..more
