Does anyone else Homozygous have the C allele – C677T Polymorphism & allergic to Cobalt?
Hi @lilli64, welcome. I'm tagging a few other members who have MTHFR with the C667T variant, like @ronniekep @msfxit @hodagwi @tamikay @andyinaustin @gldnrtrvrlvr @bet @monk1015 to see if they know if they are allergic to cobalt. You can read more stories in this related discussion:

Lilli, How long have you known that you have this genetic mutation? How did you discover that you're allergic to cobalt?
I found out last year after my GYNO ordered the test I’m not sure what cobalt is

Thank you for connecting my post to other members. I found out last April, when my Therapist was testing me for medications through Genesight, But; I wasn't familure with genetics that much, since then I've been getting sicker and been learning quit a alot. I found out about the Cobalt through patch testing. When trying to figure out why I was having burning mouth syndrome. Unfortunately it is in B12, to my understanding that is what I need to get Methylmalonic acid levels down?. I live in Nebraska not getting alot of help with our broken system here, so trying to figure this out to know what direction I need to take for this.
Hi, Cobalt is a metal that is found in many medicines, foods ect. It is B12 when it comes to Vitamines. Did your Dr. have you take B12 injections for you C677T?
