MTHFR - Gene Mutation - Anyone know anything?
After years of battling depression (not major), anxiety, food allergies, heavy metal poisoning, probably adrenal fatigue, I've discovered that I'm MTHFR - compound hetero for C677T and A1298C.
I just started Deplin 7.5mg (generic- l methylfolate) 4 days ago. I've been very drowsy waking up. Is this common?
I'm wondering if the reactions to gluten, dairy, etc. are a result of the mutation and will become minimized after treatment or if I'll have to really work on cutting out gluten and dairy from my diet.
Can one heal simply by increasing methylfolate in the system?
When doing detox baths, how frequently can this be done without doing damage? 1x per week, 2x per week, etc???
Are glutathione IVs an important part of getting better?
I've spent so much money with supplements, seeing the Dr., testing, etc. it's getting ridic. I thought that learning about MTHFR as the potential underlying cause was a turning point, but it sounds like supplementing L-meth is just the beginning. Any thoughts, insights, encouragement would be most helpful.
