Hyperhomocysteinemia with MTHFR C677T mutations. Does anyone have this

Posted by ronniekep @ronniekep, Nov 8, 2018

Hi, I took a DNA test to see what medications I could not take and while finding out, I would out I carry this gene. Does anyone else have this? I know I am not alone! I have raised my folate and B12 and B6 but I delay the response to antidepressants.

welcome to the MTFHR club. not a club anyone wants to be in. wife and daughters are stable and have been for quite a while. she has the double gene mutation. her thoughts are to not eat anything with folic acid in it which is the synthetic form of folic acid and have nothing with more than 4% iron content in it. check the package. this means that anything that says "enriched" is not good for you. most breads and pastas are enriched. meat and potatoes and veggies are the basic menu. Aldi's grocery chain has European products and some of those pastas are ok. Brioche bread is usually ok and Walmart carries it and the kind we get is not enriched. it will take a while to get your system absorbing the good food. have any more questions, please let me know. wife does take meds for high cholestorol but has low blood pressure.

just changing eating patterns will help a lot and will take a while to have the cells respond to food that they can absorb.
