Re: Folic Acid inhibits Amyloid-beta ....

Hi Stavia, From what I've read, Folate is a necessary ingredient for creating platelets and red and white blood cells. One complication of Folate deficiency is anemia. I haven't found the exact biochemical discussion that shows where methylation comes in. Here are my markers since 2001. Those in red...

Re: Folic Acid inhibits Amyloid-beta ....

Susan, I really appreciate your insights! Very helpful. If having one of the MTHFR variants doesn't impact the folic acid to folate conversion, why are those of us who have variants are suggested to take methylated forms of vitamin B (B2, B6, B9, B12) ? Is it just to make it that much easier on our ...

Re: Reporting Aboard

Hill - good read. Kinda scary about the IRS-1 marker. Katie - ah yes, the Californian good life (some charges apply). I will never take Gabapentin again. I have no idea why it threw me for a loop - maybe somewhere in the methylation cycle ?!? For the moment I'm focusing in on dropping out the Satura...

Reporting Aboard

Hi All, Here’s my story of how I came here and what I’ve been working on healthwise. I would really appreciate any feedback. :D I’m a 48 years-old man with E4/E4. I have a BMI of 22.5, body fat around 13%. I’m married with two kids. I have a desk job but get up every 30 minutes or so to walk about. ...

Re: Treat MTHFR C677T if you have it

I listened to a podcast by Dr. Ruscio a few weeks ago on this topic. He came down on the side that supplementing with B vitamins can lower your homocysteine levels but that doesn't improve your cardiac risk. Here are all the references - pro and con - to using B vitamins to lower Homocysteine: PRO -...

Re: Folic Acid inhibits Amyloid-beta ....

Thank you, Philly. This might be slightly off topic but I hope someone can address these questions. I have the MTHFR mutation: MTHFR (A1298C) = C/C, which may inhibit the methylation process at roughly 60%. I've read that when you take blood tests for folate (and other B vitamins), the test will reg...

Re: 23 & me test - still worth it?

Thank you, good points. My take-away from Stavia is that you want to pace yourself in absorbing your DNA information. I prefer the pull versus push approach for data gathering in this area. It can be overwhelming, especially with results that can have a significant impact on your life. (Funny, dry e...

Re: 23 & me test - still worth it?

Stavia - good advice. My E4/E4 status came as a shock to me because I didn't realize that my functional med doctor had included them in his panel. The shock didn't last too long but I decided to tackle the MTHFR first, and have been working the E4/E4 over the last two weeks. I'm pretty much in the h...
