Homocysteine Test

After the enormous amount of hours I have spent researching, I have settled on a theory that my MTHFR mutation is causing me to be undernourished and suffering from malabsorption (yeah, it sounds crazy, but so is debilitating arthritis at 42).

There is a lot of information on the internet about MTHFR, but not much in cold, hard print. The only really relevant text I could find was The Homocysteine Solution by Patrick Holford, so this is the one I’m going to base my initial lifestyle changes on in an attempt to reduce my arthritic pain.

For good measure (and because Amazon was clever enough to show it to me in the “also bought” section), I am also reading a copy of Say No To Arthritis by the same author.

Finally, just so I can have some kind of verification of what’s going on, I have ordered a homocysteine test at great expense (£149+postage). This is an enormous amount of money to drop on a something out of the blue, but I am at the point of desperation for answers and results, and nothing works like cold hard numerical analysis. I am eagerly awaiting its arrival.
