A Little Poisoning Along the Road to ME/CFS
Looking at my symptoms, many of which are far less these days and some are gone, it would be easy to figure that I'd just been dealing with some heavy-duty menopausal issues.

Quick Question - Should I be taking methylcobalamin or hydroxocobalamin?

    DNA results are in my signature. Which one should I be on, or perhaps both? COMT +/+ says I should have hydroxocobalamin and avoid methylcobalamin, but MTR -/+, MTRR A664A +/+ and MTRR A66G +/+ say I need to take methylcobalamin. What do I do? I am on methylcobalamin but I don't seem to be improving much.

    Thanks!

    If you are using Fred's full protocol I would say stick with Methyl but if you are using something different perhaps the hydro?

    The only thing I know about Hydro is it is often used for bipolar or schizo where methyl b12 might make them more emotionally charged? I think...

    anyways I hope you find what works for you!

    PQQ and COQ10 alongside the methylation supplements would be helpful!

    Methylcobalamin. Hydroxy is next to useless.

    Hi,

    Can I ask how you got the DNA tests? I'm in London and researching for a friend and it would be good to mention this to her.

    Cheers Richard.

    23andme. They ship to the UK. $99 plus $70 for international shipping. Worth it, in my opinion. Then you can put the results through geneticgenie and nutrahacker. Good luck to your friend!
