170: What range of folate and homocysteine are good for MTHFR?
Masterjohn Q&A Files Episode 170
Question: What range of folate and homocysteine are good for MTHFR?
So 18 to 22 nanograms per milliliter for serum folate and then for homocysteine, I would say seven to nine, I think eight is right smack in the middle and it's fine. No harm in getting down to five, if you can get there but I wouldn't, if you're in the seven to nine range, I wouldn't worry about it.
