MTHFR gene test is conducted to observe the level of metabolism activities. MTHFR test results will indicate some major things which cannot be inferred by other type of tests as this test is directly reading the chemical and methyl activities of the human DNA which cannot be done by other type of tests including high tech scanning equipments. The MTHFR test is conducted by collecting saliva samples and then extract the DNA from the saliva. Based on the reaction and observations, the result will be furnished.
MTHFR gene tests interpretation:
MTHFR gene tests are interpreted into two types either positive or negative. MTHFR gene tests usually find the mutation content or the type of mutation present inside the body. MTHFR mutation may increase homocysteine levels. The presence of homocysteine level may help you to identify many things within our body. An increased level of homocysteine indicates that the person might have cardiovascular issues which will lead to many serious issues like clotting of blood and in major state it will lead to thrombosis and other cardio vascular disease. Sometimes the test will indicate high level of homocysteine level which is due to some generic mutations or heredity which won’t cause any serious issues.
The increased level of homocysteine also indicates the deficiency of some major vitamins like B12 and lack of metabolism activities within the body. Using the interpretation we can even find the possibilities of cancer and neural defects. The entire test is to ensure the proper metabolic activities within the body. The improper activities may sometimes lead to dreadful diseases. Sometimes it can lead to paralysis. MTHFR treatment will be done only after the analyses of the presence of A1298C and C677T the results will be furnished.
