    I was recently diagnosed as double heterozygote. I have started supplementing and seen some drastic improvements in my health. I have two small children, ages 2 and 5 who are healthy and happy. If there is no obvious or immediate concern for their health, mental or physical, should they be tested and given treatments as well if they are found to carry MTHFR mutations?

    I have hashimotos and I have elevated homocysteine its 19.9μmol/L , lower folic acid – 5.1ng /ml, lower 25-OH Vitamin D, higher LDL , lower HDL higher alkaline phosphate, Higher triglycerides …….. My doc told to do MTHFR test and told to do 23andme test….. but 23andme is unwilling to ship it in India….. In MTHFR support group some one said to do Methylation profile from Doctors Data …..

    My APO-A1 is 98 mg/dl, APO-B is 84 mg/dl and APO B/A1 is 0.9, so this level also looks disturbed … I dont know if I should do Apolipoprotein E Genotyping from Spectra cell also or what ?

    Hello Dr. Lynch,
    We took the 23 and Me test and found out my husband has theMthfr 677T gene
    (yellow- not red). I do not have it. we have a 23 yr. old son who was born with transposition of great arteries. After all these years, no cardiologist has given us a reason this happened. Do you think methlation issues could have contributed to this?
    thank you!

      Possible contributor to it yes – but not main solo cause – absolutely not. I would think it is an overall methylation dysfunction and reduced glutathione prior to and during pregnancy that may have lead to this. It’s definitely not anyone’s fault nor can one blame genetics solely here either – it’s a complex process that most people – inc doctors – have no idea how to prevent. I am teaching them now.

    Hi I am a 45 yr old female and just found out I am Herto 677t.. Anyway, these are the supplements I am taking.. my doctor is new at this and I don’t want to mess it up:
    B12 Methylcobalamin – 2000
    Methylfolate – 1 pill – smallest dosage
    L- Creatine – 10 mg
    Vit C – 2000
    Vit E – 2000
    Trace minerals – 2 servings a day
    Vit D – 2000
    Niacin – 25 – Have to take or I feel awful.
    Multi Vit (no folic acid) with Methylfolate
    Magnesium – 800

    I feel awful about 50% of the time.. I follow a strict GF diet as I am Celiac as well. Low carbs.. etc. Please inform me on tweaks that you would make. THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your research!!! This is so complicated!!!

      Carol – I would consider pulsing the nutrients based on how YOU feel. Check out this podcast with Dr. Lynch on “How much to take.” He is a proponent of pulsing based on how you feel. Of course, share this information with your doctor and have a discussion together about how to best move forward.

    Dear Dr Ben,

    Thank you for this amazing website.
    I had one healthy baby then tow conservative miscarriages both at 7 weeks. I did investigations for recurrent abortions and it came out that I’m MTHFR compound heterozygous. I started to take 5mg folic acid for two weeks then after what I read on the Internet about harmful effects of folic acid I stopped taking it for 5 days then I resumed to take half a pill which is 2.5 mg for 1 week then I bough methylfolate 1 mg online and I’m taking it and I’m intending to continue using it for anther 2 months and 20 days – period of preconception –
    . My doctor also told me once i’m pregnant I take aspirin and LMWH injections.
    Am I in the right boat? Please provide me with all the specific treatment I should be taking in the preconception period cause I’m so nervous!
    P.S. I’m a new physician graduated in 2014.
    Best regards,
    S B
