    For the MTHFR issue (you have the worst kind of MTHFR mutation)... the website http://mthfr.net/ is full of good info. Here's the basic protocol from that website http://mthfr.net/mthfr-c677t-mutation-basic-protocol/2012/02/24/

    I see a specialist for my MTHFR mutation.. at the very mimimum you need to be on
    • Methylfolate or the other kind of active folate if you cant tolerate this till you can.
    • Methylcobalamin
    as your body needing the methyl group of the B12 and the methylfolate as your body cant convert normal folate properly. I have a child with similar to spina bifida due to me having this mutation but not knowing when I got pregnant so I was only talking folate which was useless to me. This mutation also increases stroke risk, heart attack risk, miscarriage risk.. so it needs to be treated (and can give one a lot of other issues not treating it).

    Thank you! For responding I'm going to see an environmental doc a week from Thursday.. Funny thing I've always taken methylcolbalamin.. But never did the methyl folate but I'm sure I'll be learning a lot over the next few months. Ugh

    Hey mookie,

    There is a good FAQ here,


    Am in the same boat, there is a lot of reading to do, hard to take it all in and get a grip on it all, let along all the supplment juggling, trial and error.

    Good luck.
