I've just been diagnosed as compound heter 677T 1298C I'm new to this and am trying to understand what you wrote. How was your son diagnosed? Have you learned about this from Dr. Ben Lynch? How old is your son and do you think you have this defect under control?
Well levels always monitored now but treatment has normalized levels so betain powder used and b12 hydrocobazolime and calcium Folinate he also had all low plasma amino acids this has also been recorded red with pea protein isolate and rice protein isolate and has normalized chronic runny poo and allowed him to grow also amino acid 2000 mega mass tablet normalized plasma amino acids
So, if anyone has the MTHFR deficiency, do you also have spinal issues? Apparently neural tube defects are common with this condition, which might explain the syrinx in my spine. Thanks for any info at all..... Char
CoRDS, or the Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford, is based at Sanford Research in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It provides researchers with a centralized, international patient registry for all rare diseases. This program allows patients and researchers to connect as easily as possible to help advance treatments and cures for rare diseases. The CoRDS team works with patient advocacy groups, individuals and researchers to help in the advancement of research in over 7,000 rare diseases. The registry is free for patients to enroll and researchers to access.
Enrolling is easy.
After these steps, the enrollment process is complete. All other questions are voluntary. However, these questions are important to patients and their families to create awareness as well as to researchers to study rare diseases. This is why we ask our participants to update their information annually or anytime changes to their information occur.
Researchers can contact CoRDS to determine if the registry contains participants with the rare disease they are researching. If the researcher determines there is a sufficient number of participants or data on the rare disease of interest within the registry, the researcher can apply for access. Upon approval from the CoRDS Scientific Advisory Board, CoRDS staff will reach out to participants on behalf of the researcher. It is then up to the participant to determine if they would like to join the study.
