Poem about MTHFR mutation
Tired, all of the time dragging
Need boost energy. . . sagging.
Work out, then whipped for day.
Can’t function in life this way.
Drinking coffee, pot or two
Gets me going, it will do.
I dragged myself to the doc
She ran blood test, what a shock!
My gene, MTHFR,
Mutated, to my horror.
Vitamin B is the cure.
Life is great, I will endure!
Feel my blood in veins pumping
To tasks, easily jumping!
Smile when I think how easy
Is to live when not woozy.
Mood flies high, like sunny day,
When toils of life go away.
– – June Nash
My daughter found out she suffered from a MTHFR gene mutation after having two unsuccessful pregnancies. She was finally diagnosed with having a double MTHFR gene mutation. She told me that I must have at least a single mutation for her to have a double. We both started taking aspirin daily as well as vitamin B complex. We are now both taking a special vitamin B called HomocysteX. I cannot believe the difference it has made in my energy levels.
