QUOTES FROM DR BEN LYNCH RELATED TO A1298C:  MORE TO COME!

"Those carrying the A1298C are more likely to present with neurological and motor dysfunction. The reasons are complex and have to do with toxic metabolites and the reduced capacity to eliminate/detoxify." http://mthfr.net/mthfr-screening/2011/09/29/

"For those with mental dysfunction and having A1298C – the Neopterin/Biopterin along with the Amino Acid 40 are essential."
(He was talking about testing / tests)

"Also – in A1298C – these individuals do not make dopamine very well – or serotonin – which leads to Parkison’s like symptoms. In fact, all the neurotransmitters supported by the BH4 pathway are deficient in those with Parkinson’s.
     I do not view Parkinson’s as a disease at all – rather a dysfunction. There is commonly increased toxicity combined with decreased neurotransmitter production. This is a bad combination but may improve with the right protocols.
     I firmly believe one can be homozygous A1298C and never develop any chronic illness. It is a matter of dealing with the defect properly via lifestyle, dietary and nutrients."
