MTHFR Gene abnormal

I have been diagnosed with abnormalities of the MTHFR gene.

I have been having alot of problems for a couple years and after several doctors, I went to a doctor that specialized in nutritional defiencies. He has ran alot of blood test (10 tubes).

I received a letter about the MTHFR gene and a prescription for Metanx. I am to be retested in a month.

I also have low d which I have been battling over a year. 14 on the first test, 20 now. I am on 10,000 units of D3.

I have never heard of MTHFR - anyone else have it?

I am 53 - beginning menopause, had historectomy in '85. Had two kids, problem carrying second one but both are fine. I know this can cause problems with miscarriages because it deals will folic acid.

The letter said my kids need to be tested both grown.

Thanks

Re: MTHFR Gene abnormal

About 7 weeks ago I was also diagnoised with MTHFR Gene Mutation. I have one mutation of both of the genes (compound heterozygous). I have been on Metanx for about 7 weeks and I am a new person. I have more energy and a lot of my body aches and pains have went away. I am a believer in this condition and this medicine! I am excited to see how the next few months go and how much better I get.
