1000 Daisies, we aren't doing anything specific to treat the mutation. Sadly this has been the lowest on my priority list to learn about. Even our LLMD doesn't really believe that the MTHFR mutations are something to worry about. The whole subject is very confusing and I haven't yet been able to wrap my head around it. I suspect she may be having trouble detoxing, but without more knowledge we're kind of stuck. Any suggestions?
To me, and perhaps this isn't the best analogy, but I see the methylation impairments as broken "pipes". If you have a broken pipe in your house, it doesn't matter how much good stuff you send through it, some is leaking and it's not processing optimally. But if you repair (or at least "patch") the pipe, then anything you send through the pipes will now mostly get through and processed.
Again, not the best analogy. In simple terms, if it were me, I'd take a step back and look at that methylation mutation. I'm definitely not an expert on it. You can post here directly with a title related to MTHFR mutation (there are also other boards dedicated to that too).
For us, we don't have a "known" mutation, but we sure seemed to fit some type of methylation impairment issue. I know Kid#1 was "stuck" for quite some time in his healing, but when we added methylated B vitamin supplement to his mix, he made positive progress forward. We've given a bazillion supplements over the years, and there are very few that I can say actually had a noticeable positive affect... and methylated B vitamins was one of them. Not a miracle cure, but it did help at the time.
Always wishing you the very best!
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, improved now but not fully well
Kid#2: Very sick now despite being treated for years
Kid#3: Doing very well (ironically had the least and shortest treatment)
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids) - not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues
