MTHFR or methyltetrahydrofolate reductase is an enzyme that helps the body to manufacture proteins and process folate. MTHFR gene mutations are associated with thromboembolic psychiatric and cardiovascular disease, which can lead to blood clots, strokes, embolisms, and heart attacks. Two of the most common MTHFR mutations are C677T, and C1298T.

MTHFR mutations can result in the following conditions.
• Bipolar disorder
• Heart Disease
• Multiple miscarriages
• Stillbirths, as well as other congenital anomalies (birth defects)
• Down syndrome
• Chronic pain
• Chronic fatigue
• Nerve pain
• Elevated homocysteine levels
• Irritable Bowel Syndrome
The MTHFR Genetic Mutation screen is performed on a DNA sample taken from cells on the inside of the cheek, called a buccal swab. It is easy, fast and painless.
Checks for both C677T, and C1298T defects.
About the Manufacturer
Molecular Testing Labs is proud to have contributed and continues to contribute to The further enhancement of the betterment of patient specific Healthcare.
Our goal is to empower every medical professional and patient with the specific knowledge to properly treat, prescribe and dose a patients symptoms and conditions with accurate medication in specific dosages for optimized results. This can all be done with accurate genetic information specific to the patient. Most patient diagnostics today is done through what has been a typical trial-and-error dosage scheme based on historical data. Thru molecular genetics a patient can now have a treatment plan tailored specifically for body type and physiology. In other words, their known genetic code becomes an “owners operations manual” unlike any that have been available to date for patient diagnostics.
