    Can somebody explain to me what does this mean that


    BHMT-02, 04, and 08 heterozygotes may behave like CBS +

    So when I read the combinations for CBS should I read the one that says CBS+ even though mine is -- ??? I am allergic to Sulfa.

    My info in case needed, and reference material

    BHMT Gene
    The product the BHMT gene is central to the ‘short cut’ through the methylation cycle, again helping to convert homocysteine to methionine. The activity of this gene product can be affected by stress, by cortisol levels and may play a role in ADD/ADHD by affecting norepinephrine levels.

    Yasko believes that believes BHMT-02 and BHMT-04 play a role in the gut environment. Yasko also believes that BHMT-08 is related to the impact that psychological stress has on a patient's attention levels.

    BHMT 2 and 4 do nothing, and BHMT 8 has a very minor impact. So I suppose that is like CBS +/+, since the Yasko tested CBS SNPs also do very little or nothing :D

    @Valentijn ,Hello, Ive seen you say this before in another thread about CBS and BHMT not being important. Is it just because Yasko said it (Ive read she did screw up the CBS) or do you have scientific literature to back that up? The reason I ask is I just got my 23&me results results and Im:

    HOMOZYGOUS

    BHMT-02
    BHMT -04 (Not Found)
    BHMT-08

    HETEROZYGOUS

    VDR Bsm
    VDR Taq
    ACATI-02
    MTHFR 1298C
    MTRR A66G
    MTRR A664A
    CBS 699T
    CBSA360A

    So Ive been scouring the internet for information in hopes that I may actually feel better one day. But if what you say is true, I just wasted a lot of time researching and money on supplements because my snp's are nothing to worry about. Can you please clarify?

    Do a search is this forum. 3-letter words like "CBS" won't work as search terms.
