Dr. Rostenberg recommends genetic testing through 23andMe for many of his patients, especially patients who are discussing genetics, methylation, and MTHFR. This test provides valuable information about your genes and how they affect your health!
It is a very easy test to do. Just go to https://www.23andme.com/ and order a test kit. When the kit arrives, follow the instructions, and then mail back your saliva sample. Approximately 4 weeks later, 23andMe will contact you to let you know your raw data is available. The cost for this test is $199.
Once you have your raw data, you will need to visit another website to have your data formatted into a PDF document containing your genetic health information. Go to http://www.mthfrsupport.com/ and follow the instructions for “Sterling’s App.” Once ordered, you will immediately be able to download a PDF document. The cost for this $30. This report includes 40+ pages of data that is color coded for easy reading. It is the most useful genetic report available and it will provide the genetic information necessary to better understand your health condition.If you would like to speak with Dr. Rostenberg regarding your genetic report, email him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. His office staff will contact you and find a time to speak with him on how to improve your health and well being!
