    Wondering if anyone wants to give their input on these Methylation test results from ELN? Blue is low, black is normal, red is high. You will see that most things are "out of range", but not by that much. Wondering what the body/mind sensitivity is to some of these levels and if these numbers mean I'm a good candidate for a methylation trial and/or if they are often "abnormal" in healthy people as well. Likely I will give it a trial no matter what to see if I notice an improvement, but in put is always nice

    HI, erist.

    Here are some comments on your results:

    You have glutathione depletion and some oxidative stress.

    You have a partial block of your methylation cycle at methionine synthase.

    You may be low in methionine (which feeds the methylation cycle).

    You may have one or more upregulating SNPs in your CBS enzyme.

    Your folate status is generally low.

    Your adenosine is slightly high, but will probably normalize when the partial block is lifted.

    The Simplified Methylation Protocol should help you.

    Best regards,

    Rich

    Thanks Rich! My chronic fatigue and lyme doctor speaks highly of you. Listening to your long presentations on it now.
