5 MTHFR Defect
So both of my daughter’s, including the one with SB, tested positive with the 5 MTHFR defect last Friday. Though my ND didn’t call it that by name. They both did the 23andMe.com genetic test. She explained it as a missing “snip” or Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP).
Coincidentally, the day we got home from the test I saw an old post on Baby Center linking this defect to SB.
Unfortunately, the morning after our appointment, our ND left for a one month trip to Cambodia. But now I have so many questions. I have googled it a bit and even visited the Baby Center group, “MTHFR & Infertility,” but it is all so confusing. I wish I had asked more questions.
Do any of you know much about this defect and its link to SB? All I know is that the body cannot convert folic acid to folate which is crucial for various bodily functions.
