Re: MTHFR and E4/E4

.[/quote]appreciate what your doctor is doing. It does not sound like there is a high level B-12 issue from supplements or food. I am also c.h. for MTFR. This gov't fact sheet helps with my understanding a bit more on B-12 deficiency and includes with folate: https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Vitami...

Re: MTHFR and E4/E4

I will test soon and I will let you know if the homocysteine lowers or stays the same before you buy the homocysteine factors. I think you can start with Methyl Assist and then tweak accordingly. Of course it depends if your homocysteine is high. If you have other questions, please ask. Thanks, Rox...

Re: MTHFR and E4/E4

For the MHTFR mutation my FM physician recommended Methyl Assist by Pure Encapsulations one pill twice a day and Homocysteine Factors again from Pure Encapsulations one pill twice a day. It does get to be expensive, though as Methyl Assist is $40.00 and Homocyseine Factors is $51.00. Methyl Assist ...

Re: Experiences with Low Dose Naltrexone

I've been on LDN for the past 15 years. It was prescribed by my FMD as part of my wellness program. I take 4.5 mg at bedtime, and started at that dose. I cannot say if I feel any different, as it's part of my lifestyle for such a long time.

Re: My deep secret
