MTHFR Mutation: What is it? How to check your raw data.

The MTHFR gene is important for how your body utilizes folate (vitamin B9) for creating neurotransmitters, detoxifying toxicants, and maintaining a healthy heart. Check your 23andMe or AncestryDNA data for the MTHFR C677T and A1298C variants.

Long Spike

Discover the research and genetic links to why you may be more susceptible to certain outcomes with long spike.

7 genetic variants that increase your risk of blood clots

Some people are unique in their ability to form clots more easily. This article covers six different genes and the seven genetic variants that increase the risk of blood clots. It is a timely topic because blood clots seem to be a severe complication for people with COVID-19.

Von Willebrand Factor Deficiency

von Willebrand disease is a bleeding disorder in which blood doesn’t clot properly. Discover how genetic mutations cause the von Willebrand factor not to perform as it should.

Elevated Fibrinogen: Risk factor for blood clots

Fibrinogen is a protein that is essential for creating blood clots when you get a wound. But higher levels of fibrinogen are a major risk factor for heart disease and DVT. Learn how your genes impact your fibrinogen level.

Blood clots, platelets, and adenoviruses

Take a look into the role of platelets, their connection to blood clots, and a discussion of the research on adenovirus-vector therapy, thrombocytopenia, and platelet reactions.

Vitamin K Genes: Bone strength, blood clots

Genetic variations cause people to have higher or lower levels of vitamin K, which can affect blood clotting. Learn more about the genes that affect vitamin K and how it relates to your genetic raw data.

ITGB3: the PAI1/A2 variant and clotting

The PAI2 variant of the ITGB3 gene is linked to an increased risk of blood clots including stroke, heart attack, and DVT. But this variant also comes with a positive trade-off. Learn more with your genetic raw data.

Prothrombin: Blood Clot Risk

Genetic variants in the prothrombin gene increase the risk of blood clots (DVTs). Learn if you carry this risk factor for miscarriage, blood clots, and stroke.

Factor V Leiden Gene

The factor V Leiden genetic mutation significantly increases the lifetime risk of blood clots. Check your genetic data to see if you carry this mutation – and then learn to recognize the symptoms of blood clots.
