Anyone familiar with MTHFR and PAI tests?
I'm waiting to hear from the doc, but during a workup for IVF, they ran a PAI and MTHFR panel on me because of my recurrent losses. (Four in 3 years)
Turns out I'm compound heterozygous for MTHFR - I have heterozygous A1298C AND heterozygous C677T along with PAI 4/5.
From what I've been able to figure out so far, the C677T and the PAI 4 specifically both put me at a significantly higher risk for miscarriage.
I can't express how angry and sad I am to find out that what's been blamed on "advanced maternal age" might have been something treatable.
I'm meeting with the nurse tomorrow for something else, but hopefully she can shed some light on this for me & or give the doc a call so he can call me & give me some answers and information.
Sorry to pop up out of nowhere after being gone so long; I've been reading but just haven't had much to say. It's been a rough year.
