Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What types of health reports are NOT included?
A: We do not currently offer reports on hereditary risks for diseases like cancer and heart disease.
Q: How do I receive my reports?
A: Our service is exclusively online. You'll receive your reports through a password-protected account at 23andme.com, and you'll have access to additional web-based tools and features.
In order to receive reports and participate in the service, you need to have a valid email address that allows you to send and receive messages. You also need access to a computer or mobile device that connects to the Internet.
Q: Why do I need to register my kit?
A: You need to register your kit in order to link it to your 23andMe account online. Registration connects the barcode on your saliva sample to your account so we know your sample belongs to you. Our lab cannot process your sample if it is not registered.
Q: How does my DNA become a report?
A: Your saliva contains DNA from cells in your mouth. We send you a saliva collection kit and instructions for providing your sample.
Our CLIA-certified lab extracts DNA from cells in your saliva sample. Then the lab processes the DNA on a genotyping chip that reads hundreds of thousands of locations in your genome.
Your genetic data is analyzed, and we generate your personalized reports based on well-established scientific and medical research.
Q: How is my privacy protected?
A: You choose how your genetic information is used and shared with others. We tell you how those choices are implemented and how we collect, use and disclose your information.
-We will not share your individual-level information with any third party without your explicit consent
-We have been long-time supporters of legislative efforts intended to prevent genetic discrimination and to safeguard individuals' genetic privacy and will not provide your information or results to employers or health insurance companies. In the US, we were active in the development of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) enacted in 2008. In addition, we were an active supporter of S-201 in Canada.
-We have guidelines and policies in place to protect the personal information of children as well as incapacitated or deceased individuals
-We do not provide information to law enforcement unless we are required to comply with a valid subpoena or a court-ordered request

Q: Can I choose to exclude certain reports?
A: You will be asked to choose whether you would like to include or exclude Carrier Status* and Genetic Health Risk* reports. Our health reports provide information about genetic risks for health conditions that could be relevant for you, your children, and potentially other family members. Deciding whether or not you want to learn about these risks is a personal choice. You have control over what types of information you would like to see and can choose to exclude certain reports that you may not want to view. You can review important information about our Genetic Health Risk and Carrier Status reports.
If you choose to exclude these reports, you can include them at a later time from within your account settings. You will also have the choice to remove these reports from view at a later time, however, please remember that once you have viewed your genetic information, the knowledge is irrevocable.
It is important to note that reports on wellness and traits are always visible for profiles that purchased the Health + Ancestry Service.
Legal Disclaimer*The 23andMe PGS test uses qualitative genotyping to detect clinically relevant variants in the genomic DNA of adults from saliva collected using a collection device (Oragene·DX model OGD-500.001) for the purpose of reporting and interpreting genetic health risks and reporting carrier status. It is not intended to diagnose any disease. The relevance of each report may vary based on ethnicity. Each genetic health risk report describes if a person has variants associated with a higher risk of developing a disease, but does not describe a person's overall risk of developing the disease. These reports are not intended to tell you anything about your current state of health, or to be used to make medical decisions, including whether or not you should take a medication or how much of a medication you should take. Our carrier status reports can be used to determine carrier status, but cannot determine if you have two copies of any genetic variant. These carrier reports are not intended to tell you anything about your risk for developing a disease in the future or anything about the health of your fetus, or your newborn child's risk of developing a particular disease later in life. For Gaucher Disease Type 1, we provide a single report that includes information on both carrier status and genetic health risk.

The results were excellent. Although the company legally has to hedge with statements about "errors being possible", I was hugely impressed. it's one thing to have the report rattle off a bunch of data points which might or might not be true - It's quite another for the testing to actually identify, by family name, a living relative (with no other information to go on other than your spit). The technology that goes into these tests is remarkable.
My personal ancestry was largely what I expected, with a few fascinating distant historical twists thrown in that surprised me! The section on genetic predisposition to certain health conditions was very helpful, and the company is *extra* careful, here - setting up an extra layer of last-minute confirmation on key topics, just in case you'd rather not have that info in your head.
Overall, a great investment. I have one important health topic that I'll be watching more carefully in the coming years, and a lot of info that I'll be able to sift through (probably for years) regarding ancestry.
My girlfriend was so fascinated by my results that she's asked for this as a birthday gift... so I've just ordered kit #2 (Shhh. Don't tell her.)
However: Fair warning that some countries do not have regulations for health/life insurance, and health insurance can request your DNA testing information if you have ever done one. Therefore it can result in life insurance/health insurance discrimination.
I bought this for my husband for Christmas. Got a great deal on it from Black Friday.
My husband was adopted and has no family history on record.
We haven't sent in the sample yet but look forward to seeing the results!
Results took about 7 weeks and were emailed to me. Easy to understand.
I wonder if I overpaid for the actual package - I've seen similar tests for cheaper.
