If you are in the brink of breaking down because of too much stress in conceiving and still has not found the right solution to this concern, then maybe its about time to know MTHFR symptoms.

    Recent studies and researches have shown that more or less, fifty percent of the people in the have Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase or MTHFR. If you are one of those people that is not aware of this kind problem, then worry no more because this article will help explain what it is, the possible side effects and medications that can help cure this. MTHFR is a very significant enzyme that helps the body function well. One of its important roles is the fact that is converts folate and Vitamin B into a more usable form called the methylfolate. This on the other hand helps our body to convert the homocysteine amino acids to a different kind of amino acid called the methionine which is then used to make various compounds in the body, protein as well as neurotransmitters in the brain such as the serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. A lack of these can lead to poor mental health that most often than not can result to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, autism or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. Aside from that, lack of folate in the body encourages neural tube defects. This causes some women not being able to form a healthy child that then results for them to miscarry that child they are carrying.

    If you want to have a child or is already carrying one less than thirteen weeks, then it is strongly suggested that you are supplemented with a great amount of folic acid as it will help in the development of your child. Aside from supplements it is also recommended for you to eat food rich in folate which are raw spinach, romaine lettuce, avocado, broccoli, mangoes, oranges, beans, lentils and asparagus. Eating a healthy diet and combining eating high folate meals is proven to lower down the effects of the homocysteine effects that can also refrain a woman to have a healthy pregnancy but also can sometimes lead to cardiovascular diseases.

    If you are drinking medications to control your blood pressure, type 2 diabetes medication such as metformin and other contraceptives, this can also avoid the absorption of vitamin B. Refrain from taking such medications and consult your doctor if your are planning to give birth. Take a MTHFR test as soon as possible by purchasing a testing kit which is available in stores or online.
