Hello @ronniekep

Welcome to Mayo Connect! You have posted a very interesting topic, Hyperhomocysteinemia with MTHFR C677T mutations. While I have never heard of this before I did find some information on Mayo Clinic's website. Please click on the link and take a look at it, https://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/81648

If you are comfortable sharing more about this discovery could you explain why the DNA test was done? Was it at your doctor's suggestion or something you did on your own? Were you having particular health problems that led you to do the DNA testing other than to discover what meds you could take or not?

Hi,
I have Scleroderma and have been seeing a wonderful nutritionist who offers DNA testing as well as other labs. After seeing her for almost 3 years, she has helped me immensely with going Gluten Free and Dairy Free. I have made a complete lifestyle change due to her and started suffering depression in March 2018. I have been seeing a psychiatrist for slight anxiety and was taking Cymbalta 60mg, for anxiety, pain and migraines. In August the depression seemed to have gotten worse and realized maybe the Cymbalta was not doing its job. I decided to take the DNA test to find out Meds would work out best for me and then found out I carry this gene.

i found out today i have MTHFR C677T AND MTHFRA1298C I have no idea what that means! Any help would be great 🙂
