I had to stop at the pharmacy today to fill a prescription for a cheap antibiotic. Since I’m leaving town on Monday and would run out of pills during the trip, I asked if they could process the refill right away.
“The computer won’t let us. You can come back tomorrow and get a refill though.”
Isn’t healthcare in America great?
I’m not impressed with the reports; seemed like there was a lot more interesting data with FitnessGenes. Here are some things that stood out.
My ancestors came from Europe. Gee, big surprise.
I’m 59% more likely to prefer salty over sweet. BZZZZ, WRONG!
My genes predispose me to weigh about 6% less than average.
I’m likely lactose tolerant. Definitely.
One piece of info I feel good about is I don’t have the most common variant (ε4 in the APOE gene) associated with late-onset Alzheimer’s. Papa Momrik had it, so it’s always in the back of my mind. At least I’m less likely to be affected by the disease.
