    Continuing on with Freddds protocol and I have now developed a case of angular chelitis on the right side of my mouth. Any input? I did a search for this, but it doesn't narrow down the thread to the particular post in which mentions this. My search led me again to the 170 some odd page thread concerning methylation. :thumbsup:

    Hi LaurieL,

    This is caused by a deficiency of one of the B's. I had this on occasion prior to starting Fred's protocol. Are you taking the B-right 2x's per day? If not try that first...

    Post back and let us know how it's going..

    What I picked up over at wrong diagnosis

    I picked up several contributing factors to angular chelitis.

    1. Use of whitening toothpastes or mouthwashes.
    2. Vitamin B2, B3, or iron deficiency.
    3. Folate deficiency despite taking the aforementioned B's.
    4. Inadvertantly taking a folate antagonist.
    5. Celiac Disease or other malabsorption factors
    6. Bacterial Infection
    7. Candidiasis
    8. Zinc deficiency


    Hi Velha,

    Yes, I am taking the B-right twice a day. I also have been taking in additional extra B1 and B2. I am up to and have been maintaining 6 x 5000 mcg of the Yarrow methyl B-12 and 6 x 3000mcg of the Country Life Dibencozide (adensyl B) for a couple of weeks. As well as 4 x 800 mcg Solgar metafolin Folate.

    The recommended adjuncts and some others I am using are:

    - Egg Yolk Lecithin 600mg x 1 per day ( I cannot tolerate anything soy)
    - Vitamin C/Rose Hips 500mg total 4-6,000 mgs per day
    - L Carnitine Fumarate then ran out, Acetyl L Carnitine 250 mg x 2 per day
    - Selenium 200 mcg x 1 per day
    - Cats Claw 1200 mg x 6 per day
    - Tumeric 1000mg x 3 per day
    - Vitamin E 400 IU per day
    - Beta-Carotene 20000 IU per day
    - Fish and Flax Oil EPA 400mg/DHA200mg/ALA 530mg x 4 per day

    Toxin mix:
    Apple Pectin Fiber
    Physilium
    Marshamallow Root
    Slippery Elm Bark
    Yucca Root

    Most of the adjucts I had already been taking prior to starting the methylation recommendations.

    Hi Lauriel,

    I had it all my life from early childhood. It went away within a week after starting Metafolin about 4-5 years ago. After being done entirely for about 3 years it then came back 3 or 4 days after starting glutathione (precursors) stayed for 6 months until I followed somebody's suggestion of trying more Metafolin after doing some more reading. It was gone within a week once again after I stepped up to 4800mcg/day of Metafolin. For me it is the most sensitive fastest indicator of methylfolate deficiency. It came back again in 4 weeks when I substituted 800mcg of Folinic acid for 800mcg of methylfolate, more slowly but just as surely, and it went away in less than a week after restoring the Metafolin and increasing the dose to 7200mcg a day of Metafolin so I wasn't sitting right on the edge of deficiency.

    Would seem we have then had a similar experience. That post I posted back in November, and at that time I had found some info by you on raising the metafolin to 4800mcg. So I raised it while still taking my increased doses of B1 and B2. At that time it went away in the following weeks. But it again reared up and my lips became involved when the weather changed drastically. At that same coincidence, I had also added folinic acid in addition to the upped metafolin. It was mentioned by Rich VanK that folinic acid addresses others components not touched by metafolin. (Although, I am still trying to find what those "others components" actually are.)

    When I added the folinic acid, (and the coincidental cold weather snap occured at the same time), is when I developed the second case of it yet again. So I upped and am now sitting at 6400 mcg metafolin and dropped the folinic acid with an almost full resolution to my AC currently. I have just been recently noticing that I do much better with higher dosing of metafolin. But at my current state of knowledge, I couldn't explain why yet.

    BTW, I am a new poster, and I started posting when you had left. I am glad to see you back. I have many questions, but I still don't know how to articulate them quite right yet. So much to learn.

    Freddd,

    You had mentioned having this all your life. In a differing context, I have always had a problem with B vitamins and folate, due to all the anitbiotics and chemo I have been through in my earlier years. By chemo, it was chemotherapuetic doses of chemo antibiotics. I haven't had AC all my life. I did have a few small boughts of it when younger, but it resolved quickly. Only in the last 11 years when I developed CFS and then other illnesses, did I suffer from a horrendous bout in which left horrible scars at the corners of my mouth and took more than a year to resolve. Since that time, I have had it many times. Nothing as bad as that one occurence, but it had been problematic.

    Hi Laurie,

    I have a solid mass of scars all over the corners of my mouth from decades of AC. I believe that they got infected at times complicating things and cold weather made it worse, or maybe lack of vit D from sunlight or something. I spent my summers outside as much as possible from a young age. Until I tried Metafolin nothing ever made them go away entirely though they waxed and waned.
