MTHFR GENE PCR QUALITATIVE Test

What is the MTHFR GENE PCR QUALITATIVE Test?

This test checks for alterations in the MTHFR gene. Genes are the basic units of inheritance from your parents. The MTHFR gene aids in the breakdown of homocysteine. It's an amino acid which your body needs to produce proteins. Folic acid and other B vitamins commonly break down homocysteine and convert it to other nutrients. As a result, the blood should be deficient in homocysteine.

This test checks for the MTHFR variants C677T and A1298C. It's commonly utilised after other tests reveal elevated homocysteine levels. Homocysteine levels can be raised by high cholesterol, thyroid illness, and nutritional deficits. An MTHFR test will determine if the elevated levels are hereditary.

Even though MTHFR mutations increase the risk of birth abnormalities, pregnant women are not usually tested. Prenatal folic acid supplementation reduces the likelihood of neural tube birth abnormalities. Pregnant women are advised to take folic acid regardless of MTHFR mutation.

Why Done? 

This test may be necessary if:

  • You underwent a blood test that revealed higher-than-normal homocysteine levels.
