Difference undermethylated vs. overmethylated (symptoms)

This is a rough comparison of undermethylated vs. over-methylated people to give you an idea of which category you are in. If you have some/more of the undermethylation symptoms and none/few of the over-methylation symptoms you are most likely in the undermethylation group of people. We might update this post with more symptoms/corrections. Many of the "problems" we can learn to live with and get used to of course, so with age some problems might diminish.

Undermethylated people tend to have more obsessive-compulsive tendencies (OCD), addictiveness, and can also be quite aggressive. Delusions, brain fog etc. are also typical for under-methylators.

 Even more information about undermethylation symptoms can be found in our blog post "How do you know if you are undermethylated?".
