I was just told I have a MTHFR gene mutation. Can anyone help me to understand why I would also have high iron levels? My doctor told me to stay away from red meat and vitamin C. And, I am taking Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 and I was told to stop taking Birth Control because it depletes Vitamin B9, which I also am lacking and need.
I have found some research on line, but it is very limited.
Can anyone provide some insight?
