Homocysteine Blood Test
The body produces homocysteine as a part of the methylation process, a process needed for our cells to function properly. When that process doesn’t have everything it needs like vitamin B 12, B6, folic acid, and others, homocysteine can build up.
Homocysteine is very dangerous to the cardiovascular and neurological systems. Knowing your homocysteine levels can help you and your doctor develop a plan to help lower levels. Using the homocysteine blood test can also help monitor levels to prevent them from becoming slowly elevated in the future.
