I can't find a lot of independent information about this, and was curious as to whether anyone is familiar with it?

Besides heating about it in all the same places you probably have, every time I see that abbreviation I think "mother hubbard" mutation.

It came up during our dental travails and seems to be linked to neural tube defects. I just don't know anything about it. I just wonder if it's at the root of the issues that seem to be shaping our 2015

I never thought mother hubbard! I thought Monday, Thursday and Friday hahahaha

I have that mutation! It has something to do with problems converting a vitamin (folate?) into the form your body can use. I take a drug (technically a "medical food") called Deplin for it. I think you can also just take the usable form of the vitamin (the name escapes me, but a Google search should do it) instead.

Background: I've had a long battle with hard to treat depression and my psychiatrist ordered this fancy genetic test to help guide treatment decisions. One of the mutations that came up on the test results was MTHFR. I don't think "Mother Hubbard", but rather something less printable. ;)

I have this, but haven't really done anything with the information. My OB tested me when I had PPD. She prescribed Deplin. Insurance wouldn't pay for it, and we didn't end up fighting them on it. The OB was basically trying a "throw a bunch of treatments and see what sticks" approach.

I really didn't do much research, but I got the idea that it's fairly common, not usually a problem really, and is part of the individualized medicine trend that's been talked about for the last decade. It's new and so there's not much that's standard treatment yet.
