Actually not at all. So long as you are not supplementing, having a high b12 level with a low MMA is almost a certain sign that you have the MTHFR genetic defect.

You have high levels of B12 IN YOUR BLOOD, but it's not getting converted into the active form and into the cells.

This is a classic pattern of the MTHFR defect.
