MTHFR Test - MTHFR Genotyping Laboratory Test

Now offering MTHFR DNA Testing

MTHFR Test by Accureference provides critical information relating the the most common MTHFR mutations: C677T and A1298C and the variants thereof. This MTHFR Test is critical to order should someone have cardiovascular risk, autism, chemical sensitivity, cancer risk, miscarriages or your doctor recommends it. MTHFR Test is inexpensive compared to the lifelong benefits it can provide you.  

MTHFR is an enzyme responsible for converting 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to the product 5-methyltetrahydrofolate - it is involved in the metabolism of folate and homocysteine. The product of the reaction catalyzed by MTHFR converts homocysteine (a potentially toxic amino acid) to methionine (a useful and necessary amino acid).*

Why is MTHFR Genotyping Important?
•    Certain mutations in the gene coding for MTHFR produce an enzyme that has reduced activity.
•    Reduced activity can lead to elevated levels of homocysteine (a.k.a. hyperhomocysteinemia), especially when folate levels are low.*
•    High homocysteine (>13umol/L) may double the risk of developing illness or complications.*
•    MTHFR genotyping may provide information about potential causes of elevated homocysteine and approaches for addressing it.*
•    Based on MTHFR and homocysteine results, physicians can develop dietary and medical recommendations - increased intake of folate alone or in combination with vitamins B6 and B12 are recommended.*
•    Based on results, recommendations for methotrexate dosage may be adjusted.*

Risks Associated with MTHFR Variants/High Homocysteine:
•    Cardiovascular Disease
•    Cerebral Vascular Disease (Stroke)
•    Venous and Arterial Thrombosis
•    Methotrexate Toxicity for Cancer Therapy

Who Should be Tested?
•    Those with high homocysteine levels.*
•    Those who have a familial history of cardiovascular disease, stroke or thrombosis.*
•    Those who are candidates for long-term methotrexate therapy.*
