This is exactly why I am asking for your help getting MTHFR.net on the radar.
This young child has a MTHFR mutation. I know how to help. It saddens me greatly to see this.
Men and Women:
Desiring to get pregnant? I urge you to test yourselves for MTHFR mutations.
I urge you to test yourselves and your children for MTHFR mutations.
MTHFR mutations ARE NOT RARE.
From what I’ve seen in the literature (I need a solid reference still):
The C677T MTHFR Mutation affects over 5% to 10% of the population. That is not rare.
The A1298C MTHFR Mutation affects over 20% – 30% of the population. That is not rare.
An individual can also have both A1298C and C677T MTHFR mutations – and others.
Perhaps this baby has more than two of these common MTHFR mutations – as there are over 20 MTHFR polymorphisms (according to 2000 literature). I’m certain there are many more found by now.
Prevention is crucial. Test yourselves before getting pregnant and test yourself even if you are already pregnant. It is not too late to supplement with the proper nutrients.
