Going over lab results from last week. Dr didn't mention my homocysteine level was 34.5 umol/l. What exactly does this mean? Isn't that a little high
Very high: I strongly recommend genetic testing via 23andme.com then running your results through MTHFRSupport STerling's App. Also test for magnesium RBC, zinc, copper, B12, B6, B2. Any deficiencies MUST be corrected. More information on homocystine: http://drfairchild.blogspot.com/2013/08/homocysteine.html ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Toxic to endothelium: Accelerated vascular disease. Two breakdown pathways rely on folic acid; one with b6; two with b12.

Reflects B6,B12, B9: An elevated homocysteine is a market for insufficiency of vitamin b6, B12 or Folic Acid (b9). These vitamins are part of what is called the "methylation pathway." it increases your risk for heart disease, stroke and alzheimer's as well as many other conditions. Eating more beans and greens and taking a special supplement of b6, b12, Folic Acid and tmg (trimethylglycine) can usually correct this. ...Read more

Clotting tendency: Elevated homocysteine levels are usually due to a lack of frolic acid and other B vitamins. Chronic elevation can increase the chances of hardening of the arteries as well as increase the likelihood of blood clots. Dietary modifications and exercise can help protect from some of these problems. ...Read more
About the same: Metanx contains methylfolate, while Homocysteine Supreme contains a mix of methylfolate and folinic acid. Both have active B12 and active B6. Homocysteine Supreme also contains B2, magnesium, zinc, TMG, choline and serine, and provides support for all three of the biochemical pathways that metabolize homocysteine. Some CBS mutations are better supported by Homocysteine Supreme. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
