    Heterozygous MTHFR C677T means methylfolate production is at 65% of normal. Hence supplementing with methylfolate (not folic acid) is probably going to be somewhat helpful.

    Homozygous MTRR A66G means you need 3-4 times as much of it to function at a normal rate. B12 supplementation should help with that. Because your COMT, MAOA, and VDR aren't the particularly slow versions, you may have no problems tolerating methylB12. But if that makes you feel icky, hydroxoB12 might be a better option

    GSTT1 is used to detox certain substances, and missing that gene indicates that you'll have a hard time doing that. It's used for amitriptyline and rituximab, and probably other drugs. It's also likely involved in detoxing pollutants and other environmental toxins, as there's an increased cancer risk associated with it.

    I don't see the result for SHMT, so I can't comment on that.

    You have one First Priority mutation, which is CBS, along with some BHMTs which can add to CBS. If you start on methyl supps and have a stress/anxiety reaction or a head pressure, CBS could be expressed, causing these problems. The Heartfixer page has good info on doing additional testing to see if CBS is expressed, and then a protocol to fix CBS, so you can tolerate methyl supps.

    You have MTHFR C677T, so some methylfolate for that.

    You have MTR and MTRR, which is the B12 double whammy (both B12 intake and recycling), so some B12 for that. For your COMT/VDR combo, Yasko suggests taking all three forms of B12 (hydroxy, adenosyl and methyl) but with less methylcobalamin.

    VDR is the Vitamin D receptor. Get your vitamin D levels checked and supplement with that if it's low.

    On the detox SNPs, CYP1B1 causes estrogen dominance and could cause estrogen related cancers such as breast or prostate.

    CYP2D6 detoxifies 20% of prescription drugs, so you could have problems with those.

    CYP3A4 detoxifies 50% of prescription drugs, so you could have problems with those.

    GSTP affects glutathione, so you'll need more than usual.

    Thank you both for your input. This is all so confusing so I really appreciate your help. The SHMT is-

    I went to the genetic genie website and connected to the 23andme website and then they give you this information.

    MTHFR C677T being heterozygous means that methylfolate production is at 65% of normal, and SHMT1 can make this somewhat worse. Hence supplementing with methylfolate is probably necessary.

    MTRR A66G means that you need 3 to 4 times as much MTRR for that gene to do its job at a normal rate. MTRR A664A and MTR A2756G being hetorozygous are also having a bit of an impact. Hence B12 supplementation is likely quite necessary as well. VDR and MAOA indicate that you might (or might not) have trouble tolerating high doses of methylB12. Hence if you do try high doses of B12, hydroxoB12 might be the safer form.

    With your CBS being -/- it's possible that your homocysteine levels are elevated. If this is the case, then B6 might help. But it's probably a good idea to take the B12 for a while first, to make sure you're converting enough homocysteine into methionine with the B12, and the B6 is just cleaning up the leftovers.

    The SHMT is another First Priority mutation, so some folinic acid for that.

    MAO affects serotonin. Yasko suggests working on that last after doing all the other methyl stuff. If you still have anxiety/depression or other serotonin issues, then she suggests some 5htp (a serotonin precursor) for that.

    It might help to try to increase glutathione levels, since that could increase the odds of it hooking up to the substances which GSTT1 usually facilitates.

    Glutathione is formed of glutamate, glycine, and cysteine. I think we pretty much always have more than enough glutamate, but supplementing cysteine (N-acetylcysteine = NAC) might help, and/or supplementing glycine.
