Many of us question why we would acquire autoimmune disorders. There seems to be a strong correlation with a gene mutation known as MTHFR. This is an interesting video about that:

Treating it properly could make a difference.

  • Diagnosis of ITP in 2014. Retired (Nov 2019) renal specialist nurse, 46 years on the NHS front line. My belief is empower patients to be involved as much as possible in their care. Read, read, read & ALWAYS question medics about the evidence base they use

We've had several children test positive for this gene, but for some reason, doctors don't seem to test adults very often.
