About This Group:

For some of us, a genetic mutation called MTHFR is the reason.

There is much debate and dispute within the medical community regarding MTHFR and it's relationship to pregnancy loss or Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (RPL). In all the confusion, there are many ideas and treatments along with schools of thought on how to treat or deal with MTHFR.

too much folic acid and autism

Hi,

I saw this article saying too much folic acid during pregnancy might damage
nerve tissue and cause autism.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21454018

It is a hypothesis but certainly cause me great concern. I am taking Folgard now
because of MTHFR mutation. I certainly don't want it to cause this baby having
autism.

Do any of the moms here that had Folgard or high dose of folic acid and have
healthy children without autism? Or actually have kids with autism while taking
high dose folic acid during pregnancy?

Thank you.

Tif
