Serum Homocysteine Test

Homocysteine Test

The homocysteine blood test measures the amount of homocysteine present in the blood. An elevated concentration of homocysteine is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

What is homocysteine?

Homocysteine is an amino acid produced in our body during protein breakdown. It requires Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, and folic acid for its breakdown. Therefore, increased levels of homocysteine in the blood may be a sign of deficiency of these vitamins.

Why homocysteine test is performed?

This test is one among many tests used to determine whether you have vitamin B12, B6, or folic acid deficiencies. Your doctor may advise you to do this test if you experience any symptoms of vitamin B or folic acid deficiency such as weakness, pale skin, dizziness, sore tongue and mouth, fatigue, tingling in the hands, arms, feet and/or legs.

Your doctor may ask to perform this test if you have a family history of heart disease or to screen and monitor heart disease or if you are at high risk of heart attack or stroke. This test may also be performed as part of routine newborn screening or when a doctor suspects that an infant or young person may have homocystinuria, a rare inherited condition that prevents the body from breaking down certain proteins.

Homocysteine Test Result Interpretation
  • High levels of homocysteine may show malnutrition or vitamin B12, B6, or folic acid deficiencies
