I also have Factor V Leiden and MTHFR. The best advice I have gotten is to avoid processed foods (especially those enriched with folic acid and such) and to keep my diet consistent. I want to ensure I get enough natural folate each day so I eat one good sized (a full salad plate) of greens a day. By keeping the amount consistent, I have found a happy level and my blood tests stay at a consistent number as well. I usually eat romaine lettuce, but if I have darker greens such as spinach, I cut back a bit since the darker leaves have more folate in them (I think). I have seen multiple doctors and all of them have different recommendations; but I have not found a doctor who specializes in MTHFR or FVL or even has more than a little bit of knowledge of it. I’m not sure if this helps, but hopefully!
My story is long and can get pretty involved so I am going to skip many details and get straight to significant life events. I feel once you understand who I am as an individual based on my experiences, you and I will resonate on a deeper level. After all, DrBenLynch.com is not about me - it is about how I can help you.
Life experiences change a person. Or do life experiences create a person?
Bottom line: I am not your typical guy nor am I your typical doctor....
