Before pregnancy!: Make sure that both you ; your hubby (if + for the mthfr 677 or 1298 genotypes), are first being treated with l-methylfolate, p5p, and methylcobalamin (at the minimum), to give any pregnancy a best chance for success. Also, do not take a prenatal vitamin that has regular fa if you are a known mthfr+ person. The regular Folic Acid blocks the receptors that need to let l-mthf through. Pm me! ...Read more

I would speak with your rheumatologist regarding medications that are safe to take to diminish the flare symptoms, as some anti-inflammatories are harmful for kidneys. Best of luck. ...Read more
