Potatoes are often broadly classified as high on the glycemic index (GI) and so are often excluded from the diets of individuals trying to follow a low-GI diet. In fact, the GI of potatoes can vary considerably depending on type (such as red, russet, white, or Prince Edward), origin (where it was grown), preparation methods (i.e., cooking method, whether it is eaten hot or cold, whether it is mashed or cubed or consumed whole, etc.), and with what it is consumed (i.e., the addition of various high-fat or high-protein toppings).

Folic acid (Vitamin B9) is required in the body for the formation of red blood cells and for proper brain and immune function. It aids in the production of DNA and RNA, the body's genetic material. Folic acid is especially important when rapid synthesis of DNA is required during periods of high growth, such as infancy, adolescence and pregnancy or in tissues where cells are dividing rapidly, such as the bone marrow, digestive tract and skin tissues.

Leucovorin vs folic acid methotrexate / Viagra 100mg coupon
I am homozygous for MTHFR 677, have pyroluria, low histamine, low homocysteine, very low triglycerides, and find that I have symptoms of both under and overmethylation. Ive never been overweight and can’t if I try! With the exception of not having seasonal allergies and having chemical and food intolerances, I seem to have more of the undermethylation symptoms. I recently learned about the pyroluria, so have been supplementing for that with mostly positive results. I don’t know what to do with the low histamine though, as I have repeatedly been intolerant to folate, despite trying in various ways (with other supps) and several times. I have a knowledgable naturopath and another practioner who have helped me, but I figured it doesn’t hurt to ask you if you might have any thoughts! It has been a very long journey and though I feel we’ve narrowed in in the causes, I’m increasing weary….. thanks for any help.

Its more important to treat the way you feel, rather than to focus on the fact that your histamine is low. Are you still symptomatic? There are so many causes of not feeling well, like gut dysbiosis and infections, endocrine dysregulation and toxicity. If you not feel well with folate, then its not for you. I find that mind body spiritual practices make a huge difference for myself and my patients.

Hello! I just stumbled across this page because I’m searching for answers on methylation and I have a question for you. My histamine level is 65. My practioner thinks I’m over methylated and wants me on B12. We tried hydroxy B12 and it knocked me flat. We then tried methyl B12 and it was better than the hydroxy but overall it increased my symptoms of fatigue, depression, anxiety, trichotillomania, food intolerances, vitamin/mineral intolerances. My practioner wants to add folate to the B12 but I’m scared of it. I’m starting to wonder if it could be under methylation instead. What do you think?
