    I have been trying to figure out if my results from 23andme indicate a MTHFR mutation...but I have no idea what I am looking at/for. Does anyone know exactly which areas provide this information? I would really appreciate any help! Thanks, Ema

    Hi, Ema.

    The way I read it is that you don't have the MTHFR C677T polymorphism, you have one copy, (+/- or heterozygous) for MTHFR A1298T, and you do not have the MTHFR 03 polymorphism that Amy Yasko also characterizes. Will someone check me to make sure I've done it right?

    Rich

    P.S. MTHFR C677T is rs1801133, MTHFR A1298C is rs1801131, and MTHFR 03 is rs2066470.

    Thank you for your help!

    So does this mean that I should be able to tolerate the folic acid in the Jarrow B-Right?

    I'm trying to get started on the methylation protocol and must admit to being very confused and without a clear plan (which is unlike me typically).

    So far I am taking:

    Jarrow B-Right, 1x/day
    Jarrow Methyl B12 lozenge, 1x/day held under tongue for 45-60 min
    Active Folate, 800 mcg

    I have the adB12 from Source Naturals but have not started it yet.

    I don't know when to start it or really how much I should aim for of the others though I do know that I am not taking enough of them either. Any help figuring target dosages would be greatly appreciated.

    I have been doing these three for about 2 weeks and I am starting to feel worse...intensification of symptoms (fatigue, nausea, blurry vision, headaches, anxiety) which did lead me to abandon the protocol about this same time last year. This time I am more determined to make it through the start up but am worried.

    I also take phosphatidylcholine, KDur, CoQ10, Vit D, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Hydrocortisone, T3, sex hormones, ProBoost, Vit C, and topical magnesium. I've done all of these for the past year(s) without any problems (or significant improvement unfortunately). I've also been diagnosed with Lyme and take antibiotics for that.

    Also, in the PS you refer to MTHFR A1298C but in the main part of the post you mention that I am heterozygous for MTHFR A1298T...should this be the same thing (ie typo?)?

    Thanks again for the help!

    ***Hi, Ema.

    Thank you for your help!

    ***You're welcome.

    So does this mean that I should be able to tolerate the folic acid in the Jarrow B-Right?

    ***That doesn't depend on the MTHFR SNPs, as far as I know. It may be dependent on SNPs in DHFR, but we don't know which ones yet. It may also depend on your level of NADPH, which can be measured, but usually isn't.

    I'm trying to get started on the methylation protocol and must admit to being very confused and without a clear plan (which is unlike me typically).

    ***Well, you aren't alone. There is still a lot that is not known, and we are not all in agreement about it yet.

    So far I am taking:

    Jarrow B-Right, 1x/day
    Jarrow Methyl B12 lozenge, 1x/day held under tongue for 45-60 min
    Active Folate, 800 mcg

    I have the adB12 from Source Naturals but have not started it ye

    I don't know when to start it or really how much I should aim for of the others though I do know that I am not taking enough of them either. Any help figuring target dosages would be greatly appreciated.

    ***This sounds like Freddd's protocol, so you should probably get dosage advice from him. He generally favors higher dosages than I do, and he also generally favors continuing the protocol and pushing through when the symptoms rise, while I favor doing only what you feel you can tolerate.

    I also take phosphatidylcholine, KDur, CoQ10, Vit D, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Hydrocortisone, T3, sex hormones, ProBoost, Vit C, and topical magnesium.

    ***Sorry, yes, I mistyped. It should be a C.

    Thanks again for the help!

    ***O.K. Best regards,

    ***Rich
