    New kid in town. Keen to know if anyone has found any doctors in the UK specialising in MTHFR or any labs offering the test. Many thanks.

    Welcome, kid! :D

    I don't know about the UK but 23andme.com is a pretty difficult deal to beat. You get not only info about MTHFR but also info on almost 1 million polymorphisms more.

    I agree with nanonug. 23andme is better value for money than just testing MTHFR. It will probably cost you a similar amount to do MTHFR alone.

    MTHFR - common C677T mutation .. In Australia it's part of the normal "Thrombophilia genotypes testing" which I think wouldnt be all that an uncommon kind of test for anywhere. Your normal blood lab may do it if you checked. (unfortunately thou it is a common test..doctors still arent at all up with this polymorphism stuff).

    In Australia it is a test our medicare covers so that test didnt cost anything to me. At one point it was discussed that if they'd introduce the MTHFR test as a standard test for all pregnant women to have..but they ended up deciding against that due to the cost (and like only up to 18% of people have it).
