Yesterday I found out that a family member tested positive for the MTHFR gene mutation. In my various support groups I have been told I should get tested for MTHFR. I hope my doctor will do the test now that there is evidence it’s in my family tree.

Of all the pages I have looked at so far, this one is easiest to understand and has good links.

Just like finding out that I have low IgM, this is related to “collecting” chronic illnesses.

Very interesting stuff. I am probably too old for treatment to make a whole lot of difference, but I want to study up. Learning more is especially important for younger people as it could keep them from being as sick as I have been.

Anybody reading this ever been tested for MTHFR?
