DIO2 & MTHFR Gene Testing

Hi all,

I was diagnosed with Hashi's a few years ago and I'm interested in taking these tests. I've seen some posts about 23andme but I can't see anywhere on their website if they exclusively test for either DIO2 or MTHFR. I can't seem to find any contact details on their site to ask them either.

Or should I just get the DIO2 test with Regenerus labs as linked to on the thyroid uk website? I also found the MTHFR genetics uk site but I can't seem to see if they do the actual MTHFR or DIO2 test. I'm confused!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Suzie

  • Suzie,

    23andme include these but the data has to be uploaded for interpretation. See links below.

    Regenerus Labs conduct both the DIO2 & MTHFR test and give you the results with counselling. Counselling is recommended for most genetic testing as these conditions are life long and sometimes the results can be very negative.

    I didn't have counselling as my results went to my nutritionist who forwarded them with advice.

  • OK perfect, thanks for your help Radd.

  • I used Regenerus. I had to phone them to identify the correct gene test when I wanted the DIO2 test. They are very helpful
