This is a genetic test that detects C677T and A1298C mutations in the MTHFR gene. This gives insight into the activity level of the MTHFR enzyme and an individual’s predisposition to compromised methylation. 53% of the population has an error in the MTHFR gene.
Individuals with errors on these genes may have decreased enzyme activity, which may affect their ability to metabolise homocysteine. Elevated homocysteine can lead to an increased risk of cardiovascular complications, poor detoxification, mental health concerns, and adverse pregnancy outcomes. Other associated conditions may include anxiety, insomnia, depression, fatigue and autism. The presence and combination of these genes are assessed and combined with other pathology to provide individualised treatment in restoring a person’s methylation capacity and reducing associated risks.
Results take 3 weeks to be processed. The test kit will be posted out to you upon purchase.
