i have noticed some posts related to the mthfr gene. i used to call this the mother f&$#er gene s... i have two copies of the c677T gene mutation. homocysteine levels have NEVER been elevated so i dont think is a prob for me.
i am surprised to see any mention of it on an allergy forum. how is mthfr related to anything w/our babies allergies/intolerances?
I am trying to understand the scope of my problem, and I think it's not going to be very fun. I did the enterolabs test for my son just to be sure he's not going to get celiacs, but the results showed he had TWO (damn!) genes for potential gluten sensitivity. ARGHHH. So, I guess this means no peanut butter sandwiches in his future? Or, is that being too extreme? I mean just because you have a gene doesn't mean you're going to be gluten sensitive - i.e. 80% of us have at least one gene for gluten sensitivity so it means very little...as a pasta lover, i have NEVER had a problem w/gluten/wheat.
But, now, what is up w/this MTHFR?
