As the title suggests, i have yesterday discovered i have the above gene mutation.
I have seen a complementary health kinesiology and alternative health practitioner as i new from blood tests i had an underactive thyroid (under range so no treatment)
My therapist gave me medication to heal the gut, cut out gluten and advised i take nutri thyroid.
Ive been doing this for a week, in which time the results came back from my 23&me test which showed the above gene mutation (along with others) but this is the big one i beleive.
I contacted her today as the supplements she prescribed are full of B vitamins and Folic acid which i thought were bad for us with this mutation. I spoke to her right away and she advised folic acid is in everything so i cant avoid it and the amount in the vitamins she gave me was minimal so should be ok? Is she right or am i over reacting?
This is just the start of my worries. I am so terrified about finding out the above information. Its knocked me sideways and i dont really know where to turn. I know my GP wont recognize it, where do i go, how can i see?
My dad dies from a brain heamorage which i am now convinced was due to a clot from this gene, my auntie also has chronic fatigue, again linked to the gene.
I am so frightened. I have 7 year old twins and a wonderful husband who i adore but i am so scared for my and their future. I dont know where to turn.
Is this a life sentence or can i move forward?
I felt really well up until march this year when my hair started to fall out and 2 career changes totally stressed me out. This is when all my problems started and i started trying to find out why.
Can anyone help or does anyone else have this mutation?
Thank you all
