I’m Normal ………Since when?

My beta receptor genotype finally came back from Boston. The results: Heterozygous ( Gly/Arg) , a normal genotype. Hello! Did they say Hetero ??

Anyway , all this genetic googly gob simply means that I should have a “normal” response to beta agonist medications. In other words… Albuterol is reacting on my lungs the way it should. For a while it was thought that I might be carrying the variant gene which would predict an opposite and dangerous effect for those same class of drugs. That would have ,at least, partially explained why I have continual symptoms , despite taking massive quantities of the drug.

Speaking of drug responses; I should be starting on the Zolair trial , sometime next month.
