At this point genetically, I know that I have a single C677T, and my doc and I are moving forward assuming that I am a "non-user" of AT A BEAR MINIMUM, folic acid, and possibly also folinic acid. symptoms of folic acid "overload?" raging IBS inablility to tell when bladder is full - just can't feel it. - but this goes away when the other things go away--would fit into general neuropathy category neuropathy - even down to depressed sense of smell increased tinnitus? maybe fatigue slowed mental activity return of ADD-type symptoms not depressed exactly, but almost that way less talking -- I just don't talk to people as much when I have folic acid overload less sociable poorer planning abilities poorer logistics abilities _______________ dietary clues - When I have done the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (very similar to GAPS diet), I noticed feeling better--lots better The first stage of SCD, I THINK, leaves out all processed foods (foods fortified in folic acid!), grains that may have been fortified in folic acid, and raw greens that may have folinic acid in them. I have googled around for a definitive list of foods containing folinic or folic acids, but the lists I am finding are usually short ones. I have not been able to get research in lately, but does anyone already have a list taped up on their fridge or pantry of "FOODS TO AVOID"? I am determined to figure out if my veggies are detrimental to me, as opposed to being merely neutral foods. I might have had a fortified breakfast, and just didn't realize it--corn grits.....Okay, they were not fortified, just whole grain corn ground up, but not soaked overnight. Questions for our local scientists, statisticians, Ph.D. folks, engineers, and any other big thinker who is thinking about all this.......... 1. Are you guys soon going to be ready to start looking at the 23andme. genetics for a group of us? 2. Who might be ready to systematically try a particular diet, such as the Specific Carbohydrate Diet along with the Being Right (Methyl B, etc.) Vitamin Folic Acid/Folinic Acid Excluding Vitamin Protocol ? I have thoughts on this, but I think one can see where this could be headed. 3. Are you interested in having a Registered Dietician develop a Stage 1 Diet, as a 1 week trial avoiding folic acid one week, and/or folinic acid foods the next week, or some such kind of thing, so we have something that can be posted and tried by folks who suspect that fortified foods and/or folinic acid foods may be detrimental to their health? My dietician has a professional and personal interest in this, and I am probably going to consult her anyway. I may as well get her permission to publicly post what she may develop. She may just analyze the SCD and or GAPS diets for low folic/folinic content, and go from there, so there is a ready made, well published diet that is confirmed low folic/folinic. As always, I am happy to repost as a new thread, as I really want to get to the bottom of my own chronic fatigue problems, and do not want to take over the thread.
