MTHFR Mutation Test

MTHFR Mutation is a qualitative test is used to evaluate the cause of elevated homocysteine levels and to determine the risk of thrombosis or premature cardiovascular disease (CVD). MTHFR gene mutations can cause genetic disorders like homocystinuria, spina bifida, anencephaly, and others. Indian studies suggest that an elevated homocysteine level is associated with heterozygosity for MTHFR C677T.

What is the MTHFR Mutation Test used for?

MTHFR Mutation Test is used to find out if you have one of two MTHFR mutations: C677T and A1298C. It is often used after other tests show you have higher than normal homocysteine levels in the blood. Conditions such as high cholesterol, thyroid disease, and dietary deficiencies can also raise homocysteine levels. An MTHFR test will confirm whether the raised levels are caused by a genetic mutation.

Even though an MTHFR mutation brings a higher risk of birth defects, the test is not usually recommended for pregnant women. Taking folic acid supplements during pregnancy can reduce the risk of neural tube birth defects. So most pregnant women are encouraged to take folic acid, whether they have an MTHFR mutation.

Why do I need an MTHFR mutation test?

You may need a MTHFR Mutation Test if

  • You had a blood test that showed higher than normal levels of homocysteine
  • A close relative was diagnosed with an MTHFR mutation
  • You and/or close family members have a history of premature heart disease or blood vessel disorders
MTHFR Mutation Test Includes

Homozygous mutation for MTHFR (Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) is associated with Hyperhomocysteinemia, which is an independent risk factor for stroke, MI, peripheral arterial disease and venous thrombosis. Indian studies suggest that heterozygosity for MTHFR C677T is also associated with elevated homocysteine levels. This assay detects both C677T and A1298C mutation.
