Is 23andMe MTHFR testing?

    I'm getting some labs done for a doctor I'm going to see and she requested MTHFR. Is that what 23andMe does? (I had that done so that is a test I can eliminate).

    Yes Minks,
    There'll be a boatload of MTHFR snps to sort through, from 23andme.

    I got them all to give to the doc I'm going to see. I just didn't know if they were the same.

    Thanks

    You're Welcome;
    Your doc is probably going to look for the most researched ones , MTHFR C677T, and MTHFR A1298C.
    So, if you've run the 23andme through any of the analysis sites, Genetic Genie, etc., you'll be good to go.

    So you can save the money you'd spend on the MTHFR test she wanted to order - you already have those results.
