Clarified my allergies
Didn't expect much but this proved me wrong. I discovered useful personal traits and information about my health that I customized towards my day to day living. For the longest time, I thought I was lactose intolerant and allergic to cockroaches, but this report showed me that I wasn't. I thought the milk from the bubble tea I drank every weekend was causing my constant bloating. Truthfully, I didn't drink enough water and was snacking a lot. Thank you, this has been life-changing.

The D'Alessio clan ordered Mega Packs
The D'Alessio clan ordered Mega Packs for everyone. The information gleaned from the reports was more robust than what one would find from 23andMe. I really liked the recommendations as well as a good jumping-off point for more research into mitigating possible health problems. I recommend this to anyone interested in biohacking their health.

Wonderful experience
I had such a wonderful experience with Xcode Life! It was super quick and easy to use and I received a TON personalized information. Definitely worth spending the money to receive all the available reports!

I love that I can expand my knowledge…
I love that I can expand my knowledge of my genes by purchasing individual reports that are most important to me. The report was delivered quickly and had a ton of interesting and helpful information! I was interested in BRCA and Breast Cancer and was able to get a full breakdown.

Highly recommend for cutting edge research
Although sceptic of any third party genetic research company, I referenced all of the results I received with my raw data and the scientifically reported papers and they all were accurate in both my genome and scientific results. I appreciate the work being done by this company and the resources they provide.

  1. Hi Great article full of practicle advice sadly missing in todays world.

    I'm in the UK
    I can get 23 and me via Amazon UK
    My question is..
    Do I need the full test or does the cheaper version contain all the DNA snps data that these companies can decode?

  2. I really appreciated how you broke down the services offered by each company. Would you have a suggestion as to what to use for the most comprehensive information? It seems like XCode LIfe is easier to understand and the most comprehensive. However, are there a couple others that provide additional useful info, that I could use in addition to XCode Life. It is difficult to tell what XCode Life is missing. I see numbers by each as well. I am assuming the number indicate the rating (which one is better in your analysis?) Thank you in advance for your time in responding!

  3. This is a superb article. I have already started using Promethease, Xcode and Genetic Genie. Will post my experience with them as soon as I am through with their reports.

  4. I did my 23andme raw data analysis from Promethease and then opted to get it simplified from Xcode. It cost me an additional $20 but it would not have been the case had I taken Xcode first.

  5. I tried Livewello and Genetic Genie and I was not happy with the support I got from both sites. Genetic Genie seems outdated and Livewello is unresponsive. Which of these report covers intolerances Allergy or Nutrition? Thanks on advance for your answer.

  6. I have done my DNA and I have my genealogy back to 1583 we came from England but I'm trying to find out what my eight-time grandfather's name is and where he came from I'm thinking he came from France because the original spelling was supposed to be c o u v e and I'm traveling to England next year to do research his name was c o v e y his sons was James William and George they came to the United States and 1625 I believe

  7. I need to have my DNA tested yet, and I need to know about what it indicates for Celiac and for Fragile X syndrome. What company would you recommend I use to test DNA, and what internet site would be best for testing for those two?

    1. Hi John. Thank you for reading the article. If you are looking specifically to test Fragile X syndrome and Celiac disease, I would recommend that you do so through a clinical genetic testing lab. Any hospital close to your home with an active genetic testing facility can do this for you.

  8. I used my DNA raw data to upload to Promethease. I got back about 20,000 rows of information. I tried changing parameters like magnitude and repute. But I am not sure if I am doing it right because it keeps throwing back results that I can either not understand or is too scary to read. And why am I getting results for prostrate cancer when I am biologically female?

    I don't know what to do next. I went back to their website and saw that the price has been hiked to $12. I got my report in December 2017, when they had given it a free run. This makes me wonder if the quality of my reports are owing to the fact that I jumped the gun and got it for free. Will paying $12 now give me better reports? How can I get my reports interpreted and in a better format? Please help!

    1. Hi Kathy. Thank you for stopping by. First off I'd like to tell you that third party raw data analysis does not give diagnostic information. It can be used as heads-up or a warning if the evidence is in sync with your clinical tests. But do not take it as a sentence.

      Secondly, since you have your Promethease report from 2017, I suggest you try our Simplified Promethease report that, as the name suggests, gives you a simplified version of your Promethease report. You can get it from here:

  9. Thank you for such a comprehensive list! I already tried few of the third party tools on the list. Have you thought about adding GEDMatch and DNA Land? I know that they don't cover health, but they are quite popular and i thought it might fit in well. Thanks again!

    1. You are most welcome Lindsey. GEDMatch is definitely a popular and a useful tool. Thank you for suggesting it. I'll try adding it on my next update to the blog. DNA Land is also a widely used tool, but I have not suggested it since I am not comfortable with their privacy policy. They are an active research group so the policy seems to indicate that the genome files are directly taken for research. Let me see if they have made any updates to it and see about adding them.
