I recently jumped at the chance to be tested for MTHFR gene mutations. Turns out my MTHFR is totally normal, BTW.

I'm compound heterozygous. *smug*

MTHFR is one of those things where there seems to be a fuck-tonne of speculation and snake-oil around (MTHFR mutations cause everything including autism and cancer, apparently).

OTOH, properly functioning methylation is obviously intrinsic to a vast number of biological processes, so it wouldn't surprise me if it does play into a range of conditions.

And I was curious to be tested because I'd established the hard way that my mood crashes (despite my meds cocktail) if I stop taking supplementary B-vitamins. So, kind of crappy ability to metablize folate would explain that.
