I have been tested for the MTHFR gene defect and do have it. I have EDS, POTS, CCSVI, MCAS, etc., etc. I take both the regular and activated forms of the vitamins effected by the MTHFR gene defect.
Ourfullhouse, I didn’t know that you had that! I saw a doctor for a while that tried to convince me that we had the same gene, without testing us. Basically, he lowered our homocysteine by increasing B6, then said it was too low, and we needed lots of expensive supplements. But I showed him how we decreased our B6 and increased our B12 and it balanced right back out again. So, heads up, my friends. Some people like to sell supplements! (But I’m preaching to the choir, I know. You guys are much too smart to let someone fool you like that!). 🙂 Diana
