Plasma Methylation Panel by Doctor's Data
If histamine is not a reliable indicator of methylation status due to antihistamine use or other medications, the Doctors Data Methylation Panel is a suitable alternative test. Overmethylators may also find histamine testing ineffective, but the Methylation Panel can accurately identify undermethylation. Proper methionine metabolism is crucial for DNA, protein, and neurotransmitter methylation and abnormal metabolism can lead to various health issues. The Methylation Profile evaluates plasma levels of methionine, cysteine, SAM, SAH, homocysteine, and cystathionine and calculates the methylation index (SAM to SAH ratio) to assess common SNPs like MTHFR, MS, and CBS for functional analysis.
