Every time I try to discuss methylation with my DD's LLMD, he tells me not to worry about it b/c treating her lyme is the big focus. My gut tells me that I need to consider and address her methylation results, especially as we continue to detox during her lyme treatment. My DD is constantly in an emotionally restless state (we never know when we're going to have a good or bad day). Her tics, rages, and ability to be and feel " calm and present" wax and wane with her medical treatment. Here are my concerns re: her 23 and me results: Detoxification: CPOX4- GT (1/2) CYP1A1- CT (1/2) CYPD2D6- AG (1/2) GSTP1- AA (2/2) NAT2- AG (1/2) Neurotransmitters: COMT V158M & H62H +/+ DAOA- AA (2/2) GAD1- AA (2/2) MAO-A +/- Folate One-Carbon Metabolism/Methylation: CBS C699T +/+ CBS A360A -/- MTHFR C677T +/- BHMT-02 & 08 +/- Endocrine: VDR BSM & TAQ +/- I've done nutrahacker and tried to read (with many failed attempts) the Heartfixer document. I'm most concerned with her homozygous CBS, COMT, DAOA, and GAD1 (high glutamate/low gaba) mutations. I also can't figure out if she is an over/under methylator. I don't know what to make out of her detoxification mutations. When I showed the doctor her 23 and me results, he said to "watch out" for histamine??? I'd love any advice you have to point me in the right direction for how to interpret her results, recommended supplements and a treatment protocol.
My 11 y/o son is homozygous for COMT V158M and H62H, MAO-A and MTRR. He is heterozygous for MTHFR C677T, A1298C, AHCY-01, 19 and CBS C699T/A360A. He is having tons of problems with depression, mood, anxiety, etc. He refused to go to school 4 days last week. He also has Lyme and Pandas. We are working with a functional medicine dr and put him on Prozac last week but now I'm reading that an SSRI with his COMT mutations may not be the right way to go….that maybe an SNRI is a better option. After 3 days on the Prozac he seems more irritable than before. Can anyone help?
