    What is a Methylation defect?

    I've been unwell for about 30 years. Recently found that I am homozygous for the MTHFR A1298C genetic defect. There may be other methylation defects, test results not back yet. The doctor who found it tells me that he doesn't know much about it.

    I need to find a doctor, naturopath, nutritionist, etc. who is experienced in the treatment of methylation defects, preferably in Sydney.

    You (and your GP) might find this site helpful: http://mthfr.webs.com/ .

    Writing as a scientist, not a health professional, it seems to me to present a balanced account.

    Apparently dietary supplementation with methylfolate and/or methylcobalamin can help though (of course) discuss this option with your GP and/or a registered dietitian first.
