MTHFR Gene Test

Testing for MTHFR gene variants

If you can identify with any of the above symptoms, it is well worth your while getting tested and providing us with your health information. This can be done from your home. See how to test for MTHFR gene mutations in Australia here. Extensive genetic testing can also be highly valuable for MTHFR mutation using your an ancestry or 23andme raw data.

Testing for overseas

We have hundreds of overseas patients who want to get testing done right, we recommend that they get an ancestry or 23andme DNA test done, once they have these results we can use the raw data to establish which genes are mutated and we use skype consultations to gain important knowledge about you and your specific health problems and we can match your “active” gene mutations to your symptoms and advise on advanced treatment protocols.

What Not to do with testing (big mistake)

Do not use third party automatic gene reports, these reports don’t understand you as a human being and your specific health problems and will just spit out random advice based on your mutations without factoring in if your mutations are in fact active or not. Many people fall for this method and learn the health consequences of this method the hard way, see our article about this and why you should not waste your time, money and health using these methods.

Testing for MTHFR is easy and can be done right from your home or office.  MTHFR Gene Health provides an online service for those wanting to know. But they have the gene mutation and what they can do about it. They should test positive for one or more of the genes.

Because of the complexity of the MTHFR gene mutation after you are diagnosed positive with one or more of the genes. There are further customized tests available to help with finding the best available treatments for the condition.

Below the test has been broken up into their relevant areas. But it depends on what stage you are at personally with the disorder.  Please feel free to contact us. Further, you need help or have any questions about these tests.

Diagnosing or testing for MTHFR gene mutations

NOTE:  Please note that MTHFR testing at your local GP or doctor in Australia is NOT covered by Medicare. Unless you have been diagnosed with Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) or Pulmonary Embolism (PE). Second, you have first-degree relatives with proven MTHFR gene mutations.

It is easy to have yourself diagnosed with MTHFR. This can also be done from home or via your local pathology, here are the available tests. Please click on the link that best suits you:

Advanced MTHFR tests

There are several advanced tests available for those who have been diagnosed with MTHFR. Further, these tests are highly recommended to help you understand how the gene mutations are affecting the various nutritional pathways. But also provides extremely valuable information on how to best go about treatments.  Please click on the link that best suits you

Recommended Tests for MTHFR

People who have the MTHFR gene mutation need all the help they can get. Often people with the gene mutation have gone through life with the disorder without knowing. This has caused them serious health problems.  More often than not people with MTHFR gene problems have over time had trouble with nutrition. But in general and so this has caused several problems such as detoxification problems & metabolism problems. Further, these are the following tests are a great way to find out about specific nutritional problems. As well as that is common in those with the gene alterations.

Amino acids test for MTHFR (testing for amino acid imbalances)

Nutritional balancing program for MTHFR – (testing for nutritional mineral imbalances & toxic heavy metals)

Organic acids testing – (testing for problems in metabolic processes that result from MTHFR)
