International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Hi all ,

    I know that Rich used the SAM/SAH test (provided by healthdiagnostics) to understand if one person has a partial block of methylation cycle . He said that under 4,5 it means to have the block.

    1) Do you remember if in the past he referred also about a maximun value of SAM/SAH ? For exemple is my SAM/SAH would be 5 would be fine or maybe overmethilation ?

    2)Do you know if testing histamine in serum is a better indicator for methylation (as Dr Lynch use) or is better SAM/SAH test ?

    Thanks

    Yes I know, but there is no answer to my question numer 1. He says only this :

    Ratio of SAM to SAH: A ratio less than about 4.5 represents low methylation capacity. Both the concentration of SAM and the ratio of concentrations of SAM to SAH are important in determining themethylation capacity, because they affect the rates of the methyltransferase reactions.
