    i just got my 23andme tests back. i have my snps. i am just a bit lost on getting started. some background info...my family of 5 have been on gaps for about 10 months now. we have made some great progress, but we still need more. one son has chemical sensitivities, severe food allergies. my second son has autism, sensory issues, anxiety. they are the two 'worse off'. i have brain fog, fatigue (i wake up tired), hard time falling asleep among other things. i just need a start to get me started so then maybe i can think a bit more straight so i can help my kids more. i found the simplified methyl pathway from yasko, but then reading some on here i saw a post about cbs may be no biggie? we are very tight on money right now, so extra testing is not something we can do now, but if it is from a mainstream dr, insurance will cover it and i can do that. also, if it is something like test strips, it would be worth it since all 5 of us could use them. here is a list of my methylation snps...anyone care to help me get a start?

    I dont know about the other stuff but Homozygous for MTHFR a1298C is an issue you need to treat and does cause issues. I suggest to go to the MTHFR website and learn about this http://mthfr.net/

    mayrooni - Some methylfolate might be needed for the MTHFR versions, though you don't have any particularly bad ones. MTRR A66G likely results in some need for B12. Due to COMT, VDR, and MAOA, you might do better with hydroxoB12 versus methylB12, especially if you want to try higher doses.

    Hi mayrooni;

    The TCN1, and TCN2 strongly suggest a need for extra B12, because they indicate B12 transport problems.
