-10%

The MTHFR (Methylene Tetrahydrofolate Reductase) Gene Mutation Qualitative PCR Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure offered by DNA Labs UAE, aimed at detecting mutations in the MTHFR gene. These mutations can affect the body’s ability to process folate and folic acid, leading to a range of health issues including increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer, as well as fertility problems and birth defects. The test employs the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technique, a highly sensitive and specific method, to qualitatively assess the presence of these genetic variations. Priced at 750 AED, this test is crucial for individuals seeking to understand their genetic predisposition to conditions associated with MTHFR mutations, allowing for informed health decisions and potential lifestyle adjustments or interventions.

MTHFR METHYLENE TETRAHYDROFOLATE REDUCTASE GENE MUTATION QUALITATIVE PCR Test

Test Cost: AED 750.0

Symptoms and Diagnosis

The MTHFR gene mutation qualitative PCR test is a genetic test that detects mutations in the MTHFR gene. The MTHFR gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase, which is involved in the metabolism of folate (a type of vitamin B9). Certain mutations in the MTHFR gene can lead to reduced enzyme activity, affecting the body’s ability to process folate. This can potentially lead to elevated levels of homocysteine, an amino acid that has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, neural tube defects, and other health conditions.

Test Details

The MTHFR gene mutation qualitative PCR test is a genetic test that detects mutations in the MTHFR gene. The qualitative PCR test specifically detects the presence or absence of specific mutations in the MTHFR gene. It can determine if an individual has one or two copies of the mutation, which can help in assessing the risk of certain health conditions associated with MTHFR gene mutations.

It’s important to note that having a mutation in the MTHFR gene does not necessarily mean that an individual will develop health problems. The effects of MTHFR gene mutations can vary widely, and other factors, such as diet and lifestyle, can also influence an individual’s health outcomes.

If you are considering this test, it is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional or a genetic counselor who can provide guidance on the implications of the test results and any necessary follow-up actions.
