Hello. I am recently diagnosed homozygous c677t and am wondering if someone can explain the risks of vitamin k for those of us with this mutation. I am vitamin d deficient and, per Dr. Mercola’a recommendation, have been taking vitamin D3 in conjunction with vitamin k (according to Mercola, vitamin D without the k can lead to atherosclerosis and subsequent heart attack/stroke.) I was told by another doctor, though, that vitamin k is a big no-no for homozygous C677t because it’s a blood coagulant, but I am fearful of taking D without the K for the reasons Dr. mercola states on his website. I am taking one 325 mg aspirin each day to try and counter this problem/risk, but I don’t know that this iprotocol is safe. I have yet to find a doctor in Phx who truly understands MTHFR. Any suggestions? PS: I am currently taking Dr. Lynch’s ‘Seeking Health’ brand of methylated b vitamins.
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....
