Methylation Gene Screening

Methylation Gene Screen Testing

The GENEdiagnostics Methylation Gene Screen test is a type of genetic test that examines common variants in genes known to influence methylation patterns. Methylation is a chemical process that can affect gene expression and play a role in various biological processes. Methylation patterns can provide valuable information about gene activity, potential genetic risks, and even certain diseases or conditions. This test can offer insights into various aspects of health, such as identifying genetic predispositions to certain diseases (such as cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative disorders, and more), predicting responses to certain medications, and how genes interact with the environment.  This knowledge allows individuals to take proactive steps toward prevention and early detection. Our test focuses on common variants in the following genes:  AHCY, COMT, MTHFR, MTR, and MTRR.

Our Methylation Gene Screen test can provide insights into how your specific genes may interact with your lifestyle choices, such as nutrition, exercise, stress management, and more. This knowledge can empower you to make informed decisions about your lifestyle and optimize your health based on your genetic predispositions.

It’s important to note that a Methylation Gene Screen test is a specialized genetic test and developing field that should be conducted by qualified human geneticists.  The results obtained must be interpreted and discussed with a qualified healthcare professional who understands this field. To this end, included in the price you pay, is a 15-minute consultation with a Clinical Dietician who has extensive experience in this field.
