Risk scores: The risk score ranges from 0-12, because a person has two copies of each of the six SNPs listed above. A person’s risk score is determined by adding together the number of copies of risk versions (i.e. number of Cs for rs484959, number of Ts for rs1561570, etc). Odds estimates that were not statistically significant are marked with an asterisk.

SNPwatch gives you the latest news about research linking various traits and conditions to individual genetic variations. These studies are exciting because they offer a glimpse into how genetics may affect our bodies and health; but in most cases, more work is needed before this research can provide information of value to individuals. For that reason it is important to remember that like all information we provide, the studies we describe in SNPwatch are for research and educational purposes only. SNPwatch is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice; you should always seek the advice of your physician or other appropriate healthcare professional with any questions you may have regarding diagnosis, cure, treatment or prevention of any disease or other medical condition.
