    I've crossed out the ones where there's no research showing that they cause any problems.

    Heterozygous MTHFR C677T indicates that your methylfolate production might be at 65% of normal, hence methylfolate supplementation is a good idea.

    MTRR A66G works less efficiently at recycling MTR. B12 may help.

    I'm not sure which version of COMT rs6269 is considered +/+ in your results. The A version is slower, and that and the MOAO would indicate less tolerance of methyl groups. Hence hydroxoB12 might be better tolerated than methylB12, especially if you try higher doses.

    SUMMARY:
    Methylfolate supplementation is probably needed, and hydroxoB12 may help as well.
