At Verve, we often utilise genetic testing in relation to MTHFR. If you have MTHFR polymorphisms, we can help you to understand what this means for you, and how to take control of your diet and lifestyle to help to manage the common symptoms that come along with unmanaged MTHFR.
Very specific and individualised supplementation plays an important role in MTHFR, as the capacity to metabolise folate can be reduced from 40-70% depending on your polymorphism.
We recommend testing, which we can provide in-clinic, for anyone looking for preconception care, those with a complex medical history but no thorough diagnosis, those with unresponsive B12 deficiency and extreme fatigue. Read a little more about MTHFR and how it affects methylation here.
