MTHFR Gene Test Kit
MTHFR Gene Test Kit
The MTHFR Gene Test is a Spot Blood test that detects genetic polymorphisms in the key folate converting enzyme MTHFR. Abnormalities in the MTHFR gene can lead to the active form of folate (5-methyltetrahydrofolate) deficiency. 5-methyltetrahydrofolate is not measured in the standard blood folate test, these blood tests only measure inactive blood folate levels.
MTHFR genetic polymorphisms and lowered 5-methyltetrahydrofolate levels are associated with a variety of symptoms and conditions, such as mental health disorders, cardiovascular disease, obesity and birth defects.
The MTHFR Gene Test measures polymorphisms on the C677T and A1298C genes.
Conditions commonly associated with MTHFR Gene Test abnormalities:
Alcohol withdrawal seizure Autism Cardiovascular disease Colorectal neoplasias Dementia and memory loss Depression and irritability Elevated homocystine Hypertension Increased body fat Increased breast cancer risk Neural Tube and other birth defects Peripheral neuropathy Schizophrenia Stroke
