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.

  • ITP since 2014. Retired nurse. 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.
