New testing now available at Sage Wellness Group for MTHFR

In 2003, the international scientific study called the Human Genome Project was completed. From this 13 year project, research was gathered about the chemical make-up of our DNA; from this study, it was discovered that many people had a dysfunctional methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene. The MTHFR gene is responsible for breaking down chemicals in your body to assist in health, growth, cellular repair and well-being.

Symptoms associated with MTHFR gene defect:

  • Cardiovascular disorders
  • High blood pressure
  • Inflammation
  • Pain, tingling and swelling
  • Fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue
  • Infertility and more….

The test is a simple blood test and covered by insurance. The best news of all, is it is easy to treat!

To find out if your methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene is defective or healthy, please contact us to make an appointment.
