    Nothing but that, really.
    Did your genome change since you sent your sample to 23andme?

    Not as far as I know. 43% is just our chance between 50 and 79 years old.
    Above that age the chances go up drastically.

    I am going to die anyway so I am not worried. There are much worse ways to go than a disease that only affects you when you are 70/80+ years old.

    Losing your mind is worrying but at least it isn't painful. I guess most sufferers don't even know they are ill in the advanced stages.

    Yes, I have increased probabilties to get prostate cancer, and that is not good news for me, I would have liked it to be decreased.

    For me it's the other way around. I am 177cm tall, but according to 23and me I should be shorter than average. Weird.

    One more thing that bothers me is that I have a really low risk for arthritis, while in reality I was diagnosed with it almost 15years ago. And there are other similar/confusing results, like, according to 23andme I should be lactose intolerant, while I am lactose tolerant.

    When it comes to health reports, I have a really high risk for Age-related Macular Degeneration - 22.5% and during the past few years my vision has gotten worse...

    I have the Alzheimer genes as well a bit, 14.2% it shows compared to average 7%... many Finns I suppose. But well que sera, sera - I couldn't worry less I think, my lifestyle will probably kill me sooner anyways

    My grandma has btw 43.4%..! She's 81 years old and no symptomps of that at all.. Well that was still more likely I guess even if 43% is correct, but it sounds like a lot still..

    The Diabetes Prevention Program, a federally-funded study published in 2002, found that people at high risk for diabetes who exercised for 30 minutes five days a week and lowered their intake of fat and calories were able to reduce their weight by 5-7% and lower their risk of type 2 diabetes by 58%.

    At the time of taking the test I didn't train and had a unhealthy diet. I train much more than 30 min. x 5 times per week and barely drink soda or eat candy/chips since January, so it would definitely be lower now.

    None of my near ancestors had type 2 diabetes, so this increased risk was just because of my bad habits.

    Hmmm...your logic is a bit strange. Probabilities are probabilities and a person with your genome has a 60% increased chance on average of getting type 2 diabetes. You training does not change the average probability, and it's unlikely that when you were living an unhealthy lifestyle you were in the average - on the contrary you were then above the average i.e. worse odds (>60%)if you were in worse shape than average people...

    You probably have less chances of developing diabetes now. I thought that you thought that your 23andme results depended on your lifestyle, but now I think that you think that that's not the case. I also need to do exercise and that sort of stuff. It's amazing that I still haven't developed diabetes, if I take into consideration my way of life.
