Mthfr
I was wondering if anyone knows the effects of mthfr on pregnancy and the prefered treatment. I am 8 weeks pregnant with homo c677t and homo a1298c my doc has me on 0.5mg of folic acid but I keep reading about b vitamins and thinners. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Hi!
Actually there are conflicting reports of relation between MTHFR gene, raised homocysteine levels, and pregnancy complications. Evidence supports that raised homocystine in eclampsia, placental disruption, and low birth weight, is the effect of these complications, and not their cause. Women with MTHFR gene do give birth to children with neural tube defects more often than women without the gene. Hence it is ok to take folic acid. However, genetic counseling is a must, and the pregnancy needs to be monitored more judiciously. Take care!
