Research helps us better understand diseases and can lead to advances in diagnosis and treatment. This section provides resources to help you learn about medical research and ways to get involved.
Nonprofit support and advocacy groups bring together patients, families, medical professionals, and researchers. These groups often raise awareness, provide support, and develop patient-centered information. Many are the driving force behind research for better treatments and possible cures. They can direct people to research, resources, and services. Many groups also have experts who serve as medical advisors. Visit their website or contact them to learn about the services they offer.

I am struggling to find a knowledgeable, reputable MTHFR specialist. There are a LOT of people out there who know a little.... but I thought you might know of reputable resources. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks! See answer
I have two clotting disorders, antithrombin 3 deficiency and MTHFR. I also only have one kidney. My question is what are all my risks and do the risks outweigh the benefits for getting pregnant? We want to have children, but are scared with everything going on. Thank you! See answer
I just found out I also have a MTHFR homozygous A1298C mutation. (the C677T mutation was NOT detected.) What does the combination of these two mutations mean for treatment and further testing recommendations? See answer
I have recently been diagnosed with the C677T heterozygous gene mutation. What I would most like to know is: does this mutation have any bearing or is it something I do not need to concern myself with? See answer
I have MTHFR deficiency and I have four children. I am interested in having them genetically tested for the condition. I would also be interested in taking part in a study if there is anyone conducting research on this condition. Additionally, I am always looking for updated research from medical journals. Where can I go for the most current and reliable research articles on MTHFR? See answer
