Dr Ben's Thoughts: Begin HomocysteX with 1/2 capsule for a few days and evaluate how you feel. If improvement and no side effects, increase to 1 capsule each day. If no side effects, increase to 1.5 capsules a day. Take a maximum of 2 capsules a day until directed otherwise by your physician.
Highly recommended to test for MHTFR mutation given family history. Possible A1298C homozygous mutation based on history.
Consider Methylation Profile as well. This way you can understand where the exact blockages are in your methylation and supplement accordingly.
Ensure you eat some form of protein every couple hours to balance blood sugar and energy.
Consider taking 2 capsules of Optimal Fish Oil capsules twice daily or Optimal Krill Oil.
Consider Optimal Multivitamin: 3 capsules in the AM with breakfast and 3 capsules at lunch. Then take the final 2 capsules at 3 PM with a snack.
