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.
Support and advocacy groups can help you connect with other patients and families, and they can provide valuable services. Many develop patient-centered information and are the driving force behind research for better treatments and possible cures. They can direct you to research, resources, and services. Many organizations also have experts who serve as medical advisors or provide lists of doctors/clinics. Visit the group’s website or contact them to learn about the services they offer. Inclusion on this list is not an endorsement by GARD.

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 have a MTHFR homozygous A1298C mutation (the C677T mutation was NOT detected). What does this 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
