Serum Homocysteine Test

What is the Serum Homocysteine Test?

A homocysteine test measures homocysteine levels in the blood. The body needs homocysteine to produce protein. Because homocysteine is metabolized by vitamins B6, B12, and folate, elevated levels may indicate a vitamin deficiency.

To determine your homocysteine level, consult your doctor. It also detects B6, B12, and folate deficiencies. It also aids in the diagnosis of neonatal homocystinuria.

Eating a balanced diet can help keep the body's vitamin levels balanced.
