I am so glad I got 23andme tested. I knew there were things wrong...I had issues. I knew that. I had no idea to what extent. I remember when I found out about MTHFR in July and that I was homozygous for A1298C. I felt so relieved and nervous about it all at once. Little did I know that I had many mutations in the methylation cycle. Here they are
AHCY-01, -02, and -19
COMT V158M and H62H
5 GAD1 snps
MAO A R297R
MTHFR 03 P39P
7 NOS snps
2 SLC19A1 snps
VDR Taq is AA. Not sure if this is good or bad. So confused about this.
That is just in the methylation section on MTHFR Support's PDF they sent to me. The other bad section is my immune system IgA.
So, I am trying to sort this all out. It really explains a lot of things. My first reaction, even before I do any treatment with this, is to contact all my previous therapists and psychiatrists and tell them they MUST start genetic testing on their clients. If they don't agree that this needs to be done, then they are only in it for the money. There are, as far as I know, no expensive pharmaceuticals to correct people with so many mutations, just consult fees and maybe supplements. But lives can be greatly improved if these genetic issues are addressed. I have faith that I will feel better.
So I wonder how these mutations happened. It's my understanding that they can be spontaneous or passed down. My dad is being 23andme tested as we speak, and I will find out a little bit. I haven't been able to talk my mom into it yet. It's not about blame at all. I don't care. What is...is. But I want to know as much as possible. Also, my parents might need more help than they know.
So I have consulted with MTHFR Support, and also had my first session with Dr Tim a couple days ago. He gave me a protocol. I've ordered the supplements.
