Yes, I have my 23%me data. What do I do next??
Thanks for any tips. Berri
Okay, here goes. Let me know if you have any questions or something doesn't work as expected. I'm including the Note below in case someone later comes across this information.
Here are the steps for accessing the 23&me Late-Onset Alzheimer's Disease report, which doesn't necessarily provide complete information. So I'm also including the steps for checking the relevant SNPs in your 23&me raw data.
Note: Before you jump into determining your ApoE4 status, I’d suggest reading the article, Thinking About Testing?
.How to Access the 23&me Late-Onset Alzheimer's Disease Report
1. Log in to your account at https://www.23andme.com
2. From the menus at the top of the page, select Health -> Health Predisposition.
3. Click Late-Onset Alzheimer's Disease.
If you’ve never looked at this report before, you should be asked to confirm that you really want to view it. If you do, confirm that you want to view it.
Your results will be displayed. The rs numbers won’t appear, but you’ll be told if you do, in fact, have one or two copies of the e4 variant.
If you don’t have any copies of e4, you’ll see text that says, "you do not have the ε4 variant we tested.” Celebrate! However, this result doesn’t tell you what you do have (e2/e2, e2/e3, or e3/e3). If you want to know, continue with the next procedure.
The report provides information about what your results mean.How to Use the 23&me Browse Raw Data Feature to Determine Your ApoE Status
Use these steps if you don’t have the e4 variant at all or if you have one e4 variant and want to know what your other variant is. These steps assume you’re still logged in to 23&me.

A search box will be displayed.
2. In the search box, type the word “browse” (without quotation marks). Press Enter.
3. In the search results, click Browse Your Raw Data.
The Browse Your Raw Data feature will be displayed. You’ll see a search box and other information.
4. In the search box, type rs429358. Press Enter.
The rightmost column titled “Your Genotype” will display your values for this rs number. Jot them down somewhere.
5. In the search box, delete your previous entry and type rs7412. Press Enter.
You’ll see your values for this rs number in the “Your Genotype” column. Jot them down.
6. To determine your ApoE status, look up your two rs numbers in the following table.
This table comes from the third post in the Stavia's Primer
thread titled, "What is a protein?”.
