Re: MTHFR gene mutation making W/D process worse? « Reply #81 on: April 16, 2016, 11:38:18 am »
Hey everyone great thread!
I also have a double mutation of the MTHFR gene C677T amongst other things that say I can not rebuild new neurons and regulate synapses properly
I am 17 months out and have had the worst withdrawal imagineable, I still can’t even watch TV or go for a walk.
Can I just ask when all of you with this genetic mutation say that you […] to supplement is that because you’ve had additional blood/urine tests to show that the gene mutation is actually effecting you? My doctor says it would be crazy just to supplement on the basis of every gene mutation like this, he says if an an additional blood or urine test actually shows you are deficient in B12, B6, Folate etc. Then he would of course recommend supplementation but if you are not actually deficient then don’t?
Despite having the double mutation methyl B12 has been my cryptonite throughout my withdrawal, I’ve tried it on several occasions because I am a vegan too so […] to supplement B12, but when I try it revs me up for days like I’m on acid!
Needless to say I feel particularly stuck at the moment
Appreciate your thoughts
