Mthfr Gene Mutation
Does having the mthfr gene mutation put me at risk for life threatning illness more than the average person? Is there anything i can do 2 help
Depends: Depends on which mutation you have, and if you have one or two mutations. Having two copies of the 677 mutation is a bigger deal than having one copy of the 1298. The 677 and 1298 mutations are each treated differently. But yes, there is help for them. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
From a medical standpoint, "genetic" refers to the potential heritability of various medical conditions. While some conditions are inevitable (at some point in one's life) as a consequence of simple genetic heritability (eg huntington's disease), a large number of medical conditions (including all behaviorial health disorders) are the expressed final pathway of a ...Read more
My MTHFR gene mutation test says 'not detected' but the note below it says 'this assay detects the mutation C677T in MTHFR' . Does it mean I have it ?
MTHFR mutations: MTHFR is the gene which produces methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase. Over 50 known mutations in this gene cause reduced function of the enzyme. The most common mutation causing homocystinuria is the C677T mutation, which among other problems increases the risk of stroke. I can't tell how many mutations your particular test could detect, but you do not have the C677T mutation. ...Read more
Do all mthfr gene mutations benefit from folate over folic acid? Or certain stands? Is there different treatment for heterozygous v homozygous?
Hi, I'm not really sure how this service works, but I'm going to send my question and see what happens. I have been having fertility treatment and was recently diagnosed with the homozygous C665T MTHFR gene mutation. There is a lot of conflicting inform
Sorry I: cannot offer more help than this: The "story" is still "OUT" and this gene abnormality has now been blamed for just about EVERYTHING from early heart disease to frequent miscarriages! I would be VERY CAUTIOUS about accepting ANY ADVICE particularly the INTERNET about this "condition" If this is a MAJOR issue consult with a Board Certified GENETICIST! My Opinion only...hope it helps..Good Luck Z ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am pregnant and have a mthfr gene mutation and i recently read that folic acid is not good for me or the baby and I should take folate instead?
MTHFR: If you've been tested for mthfr mutations and do have one, then your body may not do well with Folic Acid at all. You would benefit more from methylfolate since it bypasses the metabolic step that your system has trouble with. You need a functional medicine or integrative medicine doc who really knows mutations in this enzyme ; can advise you plus collaborate with your ob-gyn doc too. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Does heterozygous for MTHFR gene mutation affect pregnancy?, and what about taking synthetic folic acid supplement?
Controversial...: Some studies have shown an association between the MTHFR gene mutation and recurrent miscarriages but this is controversial. Aside from this possibility, it doesn't cause problems with pregnancy. If you have this mutation, its a good idea to take folic acid, vitamin B-12 and Vitamen B-6. Aspirin is also sometimes recommended for women for who have had recurrent miscarriages. Best wishes! ...Read more
Dubious lab test: There are several different alleles at the MTHFR locus and most (not all) of us in the pathology community are skeptical about the value of determining them, even in this era of defensive cover-your-butt medicine. The majority of people who are tested are told they have a "bad mutation" and one lab then offers dubious "nutritional supplements." Talk to a real geneticist. ...Read more
I have a mutation of the mthfr gene and have had a thermal ablation.I have had 4 pregnancies and lost them.Uterine lining is 3.74 can I carry a baby?
Does the MTHFR genetic mutation cause OCD? if you were treat the mutation, would the ocd improve? any articles or references about ocd and MTHFR?
In genetics, a mutation is a change in the nucleotide sequence of the genome of an organism, virus, or extrachromosomal genetic element. Mutations result from unrepaired damage to dna or to RNA genomes (typically caused by radiation or chemical mutagens), from errors in the process of replication, or from the insertion or deletion of segments of dna ...Read more
