Hi there. When the body is deficient in methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase, its ability to absorb folate (also known as vitamin B9), such as folic acid, is inhibited.
The excessive clotting that occurs in factor V disorder where the clotting may cause a deep vein thrombosis (DVT). If the venous clots break off, these clots can travel through the right side of the lung to cause pulmonary embolism. transient ischemic attacks are more common . Given that this disease displays incomplete dominance those who are homozygous for the mutated allele are at a heightened risk for the events detailed above versus those that are heterozygous ( like your daughter) for the mutation. you can discuss in detail with your pediatrician what is the prognosis in your daughter. Take care.
