    Hello everyone,

    I'm a 23 years old French guy

    I will start by telling you about my family health history :

    Mother's side :
    • Great Grandmother & Father : Died of old age without any particular disease (~80 years old)
    • Grand Mother : Died at 50 from ovarian cancer
    • Grand Father : Got depressed after the death of her wife and died from leukaemia one year after at 50
    • One of her two brothers has been diagnosed with colon cancer this year (he is 65) and the doctors are not confident.
    • Mother : Very healthy, I saw her getting sick maybe 3 times since I was born !
    Father's side :
    • No health problem except a bit of hypertension (grand father, father and her sister)
    • They all lived very well until at least 90 and my father still hasn't barely any grey hair at 60 !
    • All men on our side are very lean and we barely put on any weight.
    Since I know that mDNA comes from the mother's side, I wished it was the contrary !

    Maternal haplogroup : U5a1

    Paternal haplogroup : R-L20

    ***MTHFR attached***

    On a personal side, I lived in Paris for 20 years before moving for studies and currently staying in Strasbourg.

    I used to play video games a lot when I was young so I had a huge amount of blue screen time during my childhood.

    For the health part, I have a bit of myopia (-2,5), a scoliosis (30°) and had some allergies (pollen allergy) but got treated for it. I wear contacts right now, but soon getting glasses as I read it was better.

    Expect from that I never had any particular diseases.

    Since I read Jack Kruse's Epi-Paleo, I have been adding seafood to my diet (was barely eating it) and trying to eat fish and especially salmon every other day. Plan on adding oysters but still expensive as a student. Will start the CT Rx that I have been dragging on because I really hate the cold. Trying to mitigate the EMF exposure but it's very hard as I have currently almost no control over it.

    And of course, trying to get as much sun as possible.

    Before ending I have some questions.

    Could someone help me translate the Methylation results as well as what my mDNA implies for me ? I haven't found very good information about it yet.

    I can't put any weight and I am very thin (110lbs for 5'4), does this mean I am Leptin resistant ? All men in my family were very lean all their life and I would like to put on some weight

    Thanks !
