Hi, thanks for your previous help regarding folate/folic acid and the MTHFR gene tests.
My results says I am a medium methylator so am presuming I have one mutation and not the double. I have felt worse on folic acid previously but only tried the general supermarket brand.
Do you think it could be that I am lacking in other b vitamins and that could be why I feel worse when taking it (has anyone experienced this, then added b vits and seen an improvement?) or that I need methylfolate?
And if so do you think I need a smaller dose of methylfolate due to only being a medium methylator(am presuming I have only one copy and not the 2?) please?
I have monthly b12 injections which after nearly 2 years do seem to be a bit more effective, but still not well. Homocysteine levels are at 11 and advised to lower them.
(My iron lowers as soon as I stop supplementing too, as well as vit d. The Dr has suggested thyroxine because of TSH level and he thinks it may help my b12 absorption, but I've held off as the TSH has come down from 6 to 3 and I wanted to try to correct all the above first)
Any advice greatly appreciated thanks!
