MTHFR gene mutation puts you at risk for miscarriage

I do a lot of work with people who have an MTHFR gene mutation.  This gene impacts how well your body utilizes a few key B vitamins, namely B12, and folic acid.  Unfortunately, many women who have had miscarriages are not even told to check for this gene, and still others are tested and their doctor tells them it is not a problem.  Here is a link to an article By Dr. Ben Lynch an expert on MTHFR and a Naturopathic Doctor.  If you have experienced one or more miscarriages, you should find out about Factor 5 Leiden and MTHFR the 2 most common genes associated with miscarriage.  If you have MTHFR get to an ND or other health professional educated on the topic.  You can absolutely overcome this gene mutation with the right diet, supplements, and lifestyle changes.  Many women who have suffered one or more miscarriages have learned about this gene, done the work to compensate for it, and enjoyed one or more healthy pregnancies.  For more information on this test and other ways to optimize your fertility call 970-236-6178 to schedule an appointment.
