I wanted to get NutrEval for quite some time and finally have the money to pay for it (I still need to figure out how I'm going to order it from Europe), but now I'm not sure if it's the first thing I should do. Maybe I should check the gut first, since nutrient absorption will depend on the gut anyway? Or maybe I should repeat the Adrenal Stress Index from 6 years ago in which my cortisol was all over the place - all readings were below the lower reference range, except for midnight reading, which was over the upper range. None in the middle. I can post them if you like. I know my adrenals are not in such a bad shape anymore since I have a ton more energy compared to back then, but still less than I used to have before CFS... How critical would it be to recheck before starting Freddd's methylation protocol? Of course the ideal thing would be to find a practitioner that would look into my case and suggest which test(s) to take, but I'm afraid that together with the cost of tests it would go over my budget very quickly... My SNPs (from 23andme): +/+ MAO A, SOD2 (and some CYP*) +/- MTHFR C677T, MTRR A66G, MTRR A664A, VDR Bsm, VDR Taq, BHMT-02 (and some CYP*, GSTP*) My main remaining symptoms: PEM (hasn't budged in years), general fatigue (often masking itself as food cravings), bloated abdomen (almost all the time), a ton of gas if I try to eat reasonable portions of vegetables or fruit, nasal congestion and rhinitis. Cleared symptoms: I haven't had a major brain fog episode in a few months which is incredible! I have no idea how it happened, but I sure hope it doesn't come back! Also, I have much more energy generally than I used to and social/mental exertion doesn't have such a big impact anymore (physical still does). My extremely irregular period (3-4 times per year) started working like a clock every 28 days. Magnesium used to go right through me, now I seem to be absorbing up to 650mg per day. I seem to have developed a tolerance for hunger since I started taking methylfolate a few days ago. I got hungry, didn't have anything to eat (i was out), and after a while the hunger subsided and I was able to function normally. 7 years ago I would be shaking and feeling like I'm going to expire if I don't eat something RIGHT NOW. This is huge for me No other effects from methylfolate, except maybe it helped with my acne a bit? That's too early to tell. But I'm not currently taking any of the cofactors. Back to the topic... which of the above tests do you think would be most important to take? @caledonia, @whodathunkit Sorry guys for tagging... I know you don't know me, but I read many of your posts and would love to read your opinion. Any thoughts?
