Dubious lab test: There are several different alleles at the MTHFR locus and most (not all) of us in the pathology community are skeptical about the value of determining them, even in this era of defensive cover-your-butt medicine. The majority of people who are tested are told they have a "bad mutation" and one lab then offers dubious "nutritional supplements." Talk to a real geneticist.
