      Jennifer,
       
      Baby aspirin, Lovenox and Folgard are commonly prescribed for C667T, at least under Dr. Beer’s protocol for immune treatment.  There is a document in the files called, “MTHFR Information” that you should read.
       
      Also, Folgard is a B-12/B-6 vitamin, so I’m not sure why you’re on Folgard plus an extra dose of B-6.  Maybe this is precautionary?  Also, elevations of homocysteine irritate the lining of the blood vessels and reduce the body’s ability to break down blood clots. Individuals with the MTHFR mutation who have normal homocysteine levels are not at increased risk for clots. Thus, the MTHFR mutation by itself is not a clotting disorder.  With your elevated homocysteine level however, you are at RISK for blood clots.
       

      I hope this information helped.   And I’m very sorry to hear about the loss of brave baby Max.
       
      Hugs!Heidi

      Hello everyone. Briefly my history:
      2003: FT birth; bleeding in pg; contractions at 5 months; traumatic
      birth - possible cervical trauma. (seeing a specialist this week)
      2003: LEEP procedure for CIN Grade 3 lesions on cervix (also could
      have damaged cervix)
      2006: Fell pg in January with due date of October 30, 2006
      March: Bleeding/cramps/reduction of pg symptoms, tissue/mucous
      loss; ultrasound revealed heartbeat; no reason for bleeding continued
      pg.
      May: Excruciating back pain; saw OB given tylenol w/codeine sent
      home. No ultrasound.
      June: Five month ultrasound revealed sound, healthy baby.
      tightness in abdomen, assumed baby was getting bigger. *possible
      placental abruption attempt.
      July 7: Water broke (preterm premature rupture of membranes)no
      infection; no reason found.
      July 7th-27th - admitted to hospital bedrest to inducement at 34
      weeks or natural labor which ever came first.
      July 28 - Our 27 week old son, Mighty Max, born breathing, a
      miracle all by itself.
      July 31 - Max dies in my arms due to E-coli sepsis
      September - MFM tells us Max's birth was caused by a placental
      abruption, possible that i had repeated mini abruptions from first
      trimester that caused water to break in July. She ordered
      thrombophilia panel. DX of Homo MTHFR and homocysteine level of 10.
      Put on Folgard X 2, BA, 50mg B6, and prenatal

      November: Homocysteine at 9.67
      January: Homocysteine at 9.69 - referred to nutritionist. *I am 5'5
      138 pounds. Nutritionist said not much she could do. BUT I went on a
      low fat / reduced carb/starch diet.

      I am at such a loss right now. My dh and I had hoped to be TTC this
      month but since my homocysteine level is not down (MFM would liek to
      be 6) we can't.

      MFM is reluctant to prescribe Lovenox or any other anitcoagulant
      because she feels the data doesn't support it. I am terrified my loss
      was due to early developmental issues with my placenta; the pathology
      we were given said placenta was swollen. * I am obtaining a copy of
      those records now.

      I was hoping to get some advice thoughts from you ladies. The loss of
      our son Max, after him fighting so hard to be born live with good lung
      tissue has been devastating. I know that my dh and I cannot handle the
      psychological aspects of another such loss. Anything you all have to
      offer is greatly appreciated. I have poured over the data/doctor lists
      here and at least have found some OB's in my area who may support Dr.
      Beer/Stricker's protocol
      Thank you so much.
