Methylation Pathology Profile

The methylation cycle is a biochemical pathway that is involved in a number of processes, such as:

  • Detoxification
  • Supporting DNA (turning genes on and off)
  • Energy production
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Neurotransmitter production
  • Amino acid (particularly homocysteine) metabolism
  • Immune function
methylation testing

Impaired methylation capacity has been linked to various autoimmune and neurological conditions, including (but not limited to):

  • Autism spectrum disorder, ADD/ADHD and birth defects (methylation support has been associated with rapid return of speech, and improvement in behaviour in ADD and ADHD)
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Cognitive decline/dementia
  • Seizure disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Lupus
  • Cancer

The markers assessed in the Methylation Profile include:

  • S-adenosyl methionine (SAMe)
  • S-adenosyl homocysteine (SAH)
  • SAMe:SAH ratio
  • Folinic acid
  • 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate (5MTHF)
  • Tetrahydrofolate (THF)

We also recommend testing for any MTHFR gene mutations and various other genes such as MTRR, CBS, COMT. Which we are able to offer.
