Effects of mtfhr gene heterozygous c/t over time? Most effective treatment folic acid or it's metabolite?

Unknown: I do not entirely understand your question (what does c/t over time mean?). The mtfhr gene mutation is associated with coronary artery disease. It is not clear if Folic Acid helps. It would be helpful to see an internist or a cardiologist to discuss risk reduction. ...Read more

Reasonable but...: All of those sound reasonable but in order to know if it si healthy I would like to know how much carbohydrates, sugars and fats and what type of fats. Also, is the Vitamin E natural (d-alpha tocopherol) or synthetic (dl-alpha tocopheral)- synthetic may be harmful. Does it contain GMO's? Is it organic? If not, it may have significant pesticide residues. Consider adding fresh fruit and/or nuts. ...Read more

Heterozygous for MTHFR, have high Protein C & Fact, VIII. Taking 3mg methylfolate for 3 mo, homocysteine normal . Reason to follow up w. hematologist?

Heterozygous for MTHFR, have high Protein C & Fact, VIII. Taking 3mg methylfolate for 3 mo, homocysteine normal . Reason to follow up w. hematologist?

No: Forgive my frankness. Most of us pathologists do not believe in this MTHFR screening being promoted by a lab to physicians worried about liability. A majority of folks test "abnormal" and are then offered questionable vitamin supplements. Reference ranges arbitrarily put several percent of healthies outside; high protein C and factor VIII are not worrisome especially if you feel well. ...Read more

Will a multivitamin containing 400 mcg of folic acid interfere with the efficacy of l-methylfolate as an ssri adjunct for a homozygous tt mthfr?

Will a multivitamin containing 400 mcg of folic acid interfere with the efficacy of l-methylfolate as an ssri adjunct for a homozygous tt mthfr?

Not at all: The homozygous mthfr mutation limits your cells' ability to activate the dietary Folic Acid and the Folic Acid in the multivit. The l-methylfolate is the active form of Folic Acid and can go right to work improving your neurotransmitter synthesis. But the mthfr mutations may also interfere with your complete utilization b12, ask you doctor if you need active b12, methylcobalamin, as well. ...Read more
