Why folic acid supplementation/food fortification (energy bars, cereal etc.) can be problematic if we have MTHFR deletions.

DD has an MTHFR deletion, and I was supplemented with high prescribed doses of folic acid when I was carrying her.

 

She was born with a bruise at the base of her spine which has only faded in the last couple of years.

 

I think we are lucky that she didn't acquire spina bifida from my supplementation; which was prescribed to decrease just that risk.
