An information sheet about the MTHFR Test

For example an MTHFR gene that has a mutation in it either makes no MTHFR enzyme at all or makes a faulty version of the MTHFR enzyme that does not work Gene mutations can have very serious health consequences Mutations in the MTHFR gene which cause severe MTHFR deficiency are extremely rare (200 reported cases worldwide) Babies born with two severe MTHFR mutations

MTHFR Gene Mutation FAQs

However when I discovered the MTHFR gene mutation things got confusing for awhile Is it enough to eat folate-rich foods or do I need to supplement? And if so do I have to supplement forever? How do I know if I'm getting enough vitamin B-12 and the other cofactors needed to utilize folate? (Note: If you're unsure about what folate has to do with the MTHFR mutation go back and read

MTHFR Mutation

The methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) mutation test is used to detect two relatively common mutations in the MTHFR gene that are associated with elevated levels of homocysteine in the blood It is not routinely ordered This test is sometimes ordered as a follow-up to an elevated homocysteine test and may be occasionally ordered along with other cardiac risk tests if someone has

What is MTHFR

What is MTHFR? Watch our Introductory Webinar Recording on What is MTHFR Below: MTHFR stands for Methylene-TetraHydroFolate Reductase It is an enzyme that converts folate you eat into the active form (5-Methyltetrahydrofolate) You can see from the pathway below that the folate you eat (DHF – dihydrofolate) has to be converted via many steps to the []

MTHFR Gene Mutations: A Beginner's Guide

I was tested a few years ago and I do have the MTHFR mutation and have been taking l-methyl folate for about 2 1/2 years I kind of just left it at that but my symptoms are getting so bad (pretty much everything you've described above) so I decided to google info on MTHFR gene mutation and I'm almost positive it's got to all be related I

Understanding MTHFR genetic mutation Posted on 01/19/2015 by previmedica By Beth Ellen DiLuglio MS RDN CCN LDN What is MTHFR? Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) is an enzyme that activates and regulates folate metabolism in the body Specifically MTHFR converts 5 10- methylenetetrahydrofolate into 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) the active form of folate 5-MTHF

My Story of Having the MTHFR Gene Mutation

I had never heard of the MTHFR mutation until a almost two years ago when I lost a second child to preterm labor I wonder how many families can be spared the loss of their children by instituting a routine screening for this not-that-uncommon mutation A diagnosis and referral to a Perinatologist in the beginning of my pregnancy probably would have saved the lives of my son Jacob born at 22
