Thanks to everyone who does a review, you really help other suffering patients. Hi Adrienne – you’re having the typical types of gut issues that millions of people have. It is common but not normal. You may need the help of a gut specialist/integrative medicine practitioner to help sort this out.
inactivated form of folate (one of the B vitamins). In order to be converted into an active usable form by the body, it must undergo methylation. Ingesting high levels of folic acid can be toxic for those with MTHFR gene mutation. It is important to keep in mind that not all doctors are well-versed in MTHFR issues. For this reason, it may be a good idea to seek out a functional medicine practitioner or another healthcare professional that has experience treating patients with MTHFR gene mutations.
Sorry for the tough love. You need it.
Who can best get to the bottom of if there is a mutation, what type is it, & what I should take to best deal with it. I’m in Los Angeles. So far I just have a standard? blood test that shows, high homocsytine, low folate, high beta, high ESR, Low B12, High MCV, High ROW, high Beso%, High Beso absolute, high CEA, & the low end of high LDL’s & Tri’s.
Thank you. I went to my doctor and she look at me like i was crazy. She sent me to a blood doctor, that said the only reason a T667C double mutation would be a problem is if i had blood clots or wanted to get pregnant again. My obgyn found the mutation, and sadly cant afford to go to a functional doctor because they dont except insurance.
You should work with an Integrative Medicine MD who specializes in gut health to address this issue. The reason people do better on low FODMAPS diet is because they have severe gut issues and dysbiosis. It’s not because FODMAPS are bad. The solution is not to remain on low FODMAPS diet – that would be a disaster long-term, as you’ll starve your gut microflora to death. FODMAP foods are basically high soluble fiber that’s present in prebiotics.
Certain medicines should not be used at or around the time of eating food or eating certain types of food since interactions may occur. Using alcohol or tobacco with certain medicines may also cause interactions to occur.
