Has anyone here ever gotten one of those home DNA tests?

I don't think you're any kind of pizza because you have no Italian ancestry apparently. Viking saurkraut if in the old germanic days we were even eating that. Maybe viking surströmming, if you don't mind fish and want to accenuatate the swedish, or maybe I don't know, viking bacon if you want to empasise you're danish.

I got codegen.eu to work finally. It says my number one bad association is Crohn's disease, but it says my score for that still isn't as bad as most of the population, meaning lots of people score badly for Crohn's disease.

My number two bad association is multiple sclerosis, and on that one I do outscore most of the population, so I guess I should be worried about it.

My number three bad association is gout, and I outscore the population so hard on it that I don't even see anyone who matches my score. :(

Sounds like you're amongst the fittest of all of us here, at least genetically. Eat your fruit and veg and don't eat too much liver or shellfish should keep you free from gout before you all seize up due to rheumatoid arthritis in later life.

impute.me just finished processing my DNA data after eight days. Oddly enough, its disease predictions are out of line with codegen.eu. My gout and multiple sclerosis scores aren't that high, but my colorectal cancer score beats 94% of the population, and my COVID-19 severity score beats 99% of the population. Good thing I never had COVID-19.

The one problem with impute.me is that you have to go through each disease one by one instead of getting an ordered list. I'll let you guys know later what other diseases I score in the top ten percent on.

Remember, these percentages are the percent of the population I outscore, not the likeliness to get the disease.

99% Ankylosing spondylitis
99% Behcet's disease
97% Chronic kidney disease
94% Colorectal cancer
99% COVID-19 severity
98% Gallstone disease (They called this one right.)
99% Hypertension (This too.)
98% Hypospadias (This is wrong though.)
96% Immunoglobulin light chain (AL) amyloidosis
92% Lymphocytic leukemia
97% Migraine - broad
92% Non-melanoma skin cancer
91% Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (Called.)
95% Stroke
97% Ulcerative colitis

There, that's all of them.

What does outscore mean? does 99% Ankylosing spondylitis mean you are in the 1% or that you are also in the 99%?

I’m actually wondering why I don’t have Behçet’s disease. Of six SNPs associated with it, I carry two copies of the risk allele in four of them and am missing data for the other two. I hear it mostly affects people in Asia though, so maybe environment is a factor. This one page I looked at did say Behçet’s disease might be triggered by a virus or bacteria in people who have the genes for it.
