Yesterday I ran my genetic testing through 23andme and noticed I am (A,G) on Gene rs1800629 which is the gene responsible for tumor necrosis factor-alpha .
I have been told just because i have the gene mutation it does not mean the gene is active and I need to now follow up with laboratory tests to see if I even need to worry about this or not... but the symptoms sure resonate with all that I have been suffering with so I want to test myself to see if I have excess TNF-a .... what is the name of the lab test? anyone know? (If I know the name, I can ask my Dr. to write up the lab work for me)
Thank you so much,
