How to access your doctor's knowledge of methylation:

    I saw that update as well. Worked out to my advantage...one less mutation to worry about [​IMG]

    This might be a good question for the Ask Jack section.  I'm interested in the answer too.  How long have you been taking the Pure Encasulation supplements and do you notice any improvement?



    I am heterozygous for the C677T and the doctor that ran the MTHFR test recommended Thorne Research Methyl-Guard. I can only take it twice per day, AM and mid afternoon.  If I take it any later than that it will keep me awake pretty much all night.



    Since then I've learned that I have other methylation mutations and am homozygous on quite a few (CBS A360A, COMT V158M, COMT H62H, BHMT 02, 04 + 08, and MTRR A66G). Waiting until after consult to add anything else to my supplement regimen. Think I will need to be very careful and start one new thing at a time to evaluate how it affects my body.



    I've come this far.  A little more patience won't hurt me.

    High B12 levels wont hurt you.......but if your serum folate levels are also high it is a sign that your folate is not getting into you lipid soluble membranes and your methylation is slow.......it also means your methyl folate is garbage.........

    I like that file.  Does anyone know how to get it to print.  I have tried a couple different ways, but still can't print it.  Thank you.

    You have to use a website like freemypdf.com to print it. The document was posted as a read only and is secured with a password.

    Came upon this while informing myself about methylation. Maybe that helps

    Thanks for posting Charlotte. Lately i feel as if educating myself about methylation and detox pathways is one of the most important thing I can do. You should see the binder of articles and other data I have. It keeps getting thicker and thicker.

    I listened to the Q&A last night.

    Scheduled for the same time was the following blogtalkradio show on Methylation with Dr. Ben Lynch, Tim Jackson, and Sterling HIll:

    @ fitness
    I guess we all collect our little folders with information. I have to do a lot of reseach at work also and now at home too. I already messed up my sons bedroom (converted it into my home office) with files and studies everywhere. Must clean up soon for visit of sons.
    But the more I read the more I notice I know nothing and one thing leads to 100 others. Thank God Adriana is visiting next week, so I can ask her another hole in her belly

    Charlotte,

    I know exactly what you mean about gaining knowledge and then realizing you still really don't know much at all! Would love to have more time to devote to my current "research".

    My GI Effects test arrived last week while we were out of town (attending second funeral in the past six weeks). Going to get that done and shipped off early next week. Hope to have an appt scheduled with Dr Tim shortly thereafter. Patiently waiting.... don't want to inadvertently add the wrong supplements or make changes that may have a negative effect.
