Association of COMT Haplotypes and Breast Cancer Risk in Caucasian Women

"In this large population-based case control study, we found no significant overall association between breast cancer risk and COMT haplotypes, although two individual haplotypes, with frequencies of 3.7% and 2.4% in the controls, were significantly associated with decreased breast cancer risk.

A total of six COMT SNPs were genotyped (A total of six COMT SNPs were genotyped (rs1544325, rs174674, rs7290221, rs2239393, rs4680 and rs4646316)."
Idiopathic, Full Body, Small Fiber Neuropathy since 11/2013. Symptoms include altered sensation in toes; constant tingling/vibrations in feet and lower legs; intermittent tingling in temples, scalp and face; full body "buzzing" in the morning (suspect mild dehydration); referred sensation in feet cause by touch; occasional bouts with severe cramping in my feet and legs; when flaring, full body burning.

Metabolic issues: FBG -88 A1C - 5.1 with glucose spikes near 300, can't metabolize alcohol, and salt consumption makes my neuropathy 100x worse.

Current treatments:
  • Omega 3's - Fish Oil (2400 mg EPA, 1200mg DHA), 200 mg Magnesium Threonate
  • 5 mg Meribin Biotin for low-normal biotinidase levels.
  • Low carb "back to the farm" diet, lots of water
  • Quell TENS unit, 5% lidocaine patches, magnesium cream, CBD oil
