Could someone more experienced have a quick look at my results and give some feedback if there is something special at my neurotransmitter related genes.

I've done some supplementation based on these results, but it didn't seem to have any effect.

Jake,
What symptoms are you trying to treat? These results would suggest mania, tenancy, depression, bipolar, and others, but unless you have a diagnosis or lab results, it's hard to know what Nutrahacker would suggest might possibly help relieve your symptoms.
Also, the higher the occurrence, the less likely that the SNP is going to be unique to your situation (outside of being in a gene set, which that program doesn't test for.) For example, we are told that one in five people (20%) experience mental illness sometime in their lives. So if your SNP has an occurrence of 50%, it exists in 50% of the people, way too common to be of use by itself, even in looking for appropriate symptoms.

Thanks for replying Critterina.

Anxiety is my main problem. Perhaps some depression. I think i will do some lab testing and see if could get more information to find the right supplements or medication.

Anxiety usually has to do more with the tyrosine/dopamine route than the tryptophan/serotonin route in the BH4 cycle. And of course, methylation is necessary for anything to go forward, and there are a million (more or less) steps after the starting blocks where anything and everything can go wrong. Sorry I can't help you there even by analogy, as I have tryptophan/serotonin issues (more related to depression), not tyrosine/dopamine.

For me, one of the important tests was the serum amino acids, and I had it done at the same time as the homocysteine, and I and my healthcare practitioner used the Genova Diagnostics key to figure out what was going on. It took a few tries, but I got my numbers in the normal range and feel much better. I hope you can, too.

Jake, I have some of the mutations that you listed. How are you doing on your anxiety now?
