Homocysteine Levels Normal Range
Why would someone have normal levels of homocysteine in their blood, but high levels of homocysteine in their urine?
Homocystinuria is a: Disorder with autosomal recessive inheritance. Both parents pass on a mutation of either the mthfr gene on the short arm of chromosome (chr.) 1 or the cbs gene on the long arm of chr. 21, causing deficiency in the respective enzymes for which they code. A metabolic geneticist, hematologist or cardiologist can help your doctor with diagnosis. Some specific forms of hcu respond to specific treatment. ...Read more
I have mthrf c677t one copy and mthrf a1298c one copy. ..what does this mean? I'm kinda freaking out? Should I be? Homocysteine levels 8.4 range 5-11
Don't freak out!:
These genetic variations (or polymorphisms) are very common. We're still learning about their effects on health. 2 copies of c677t is more of an issue but the a1298c may not be too bad. Your homocysteine is normal. If you enjoy good health you will probably have no problem. You might take the L-5-MTHF form of folate (folic acid) as a precaution. See http://tinyurl. Com/k6xo6xe

What would it point to if urine homocysteine levels are high and chronic high b12 levels for years? Blood homocysteine is normal.
Means nothing: This pathologist thinks the whole homocysteine business is a fad driven by fear of liability. Nobody knows what to do with the data, beyond advising healthy lifestyles. High B12 reflects the fact that you make mirror the binder protein than other folks. It's you. Stay physically fit and be thankful for good health. ...Read more
My homocysteine level was 15. Blood test said it was high bc range went up to 12. Is a 15 dangerous?
No: Not dangerous, just one of many risk factors for developing coronary disease at a later time. Try to improve the risk factors you can with a healthy diet, not smoking, knowing you cholesterol, and treating if needed, and maintaining a healthy weight. Do not smoke! Homocysteine levels can be lowered with certain b vitamins, but the benefit of this treatment is uncertain. ...Read more
Is a single mutation mthfr common in children with autism? If homocysteine levels are normal, should I be concerned?,
More research needed: The mutation mthfr has been implicated in a variety of psi strip illnesses from schizophrenia to down's syndrome. Homocysteine levels san be normal in autism. At this juncture no one has been able to find the cause of autism much more research is needed. Take mthfr with a grain of salt. There is absolutely no evidence that it can cause autism. ...Read more
Is a folate (folic acid) level of 10 a normal level? Does is it matter if my B12 level is low (276)? My homocysteine is 12.
My TSH level is 6.39 range is (.30-5.5) & lipoprotein (lpa)is 91.83 immunoturbido. Range is less than 30.0 mg/dl & homocysteine is 26.18 range is 6-25?
More info: Ask your doctor to get a free t3, (liothyronine) free t4, total cholesterol, ldl, hdl, triglyceride level and glucose. The homocysteine is meaningless you may be thyroid deficient which commonly causes dyslipidemia, which you probably have. Be sure your blood sample is obtained fasting for 12 hours. ...Read more
My blood pressure is always in the range of 140/90, and my homocysteine level is 42.67, my doctor has advised to take homocheck tablet. Help needed?
Very high homo..:
Very high atherogenic homocysteine. You need a methylmalonic acid, folate, (folic acid) and b6 levels checked. The combination that works best is 2mg of Folic Acid per day, 100mg of b6, and asublingual b12, 2500mcg!
and your BP is too high. You need to control it with diet, exercise, and possibly meds! ...Read more
My mom is 66 and has elevated homocysteine levels. B12 and folate (folic acid) are normal. On BP meds but systolic still high. Any thoughts or suggestions?
MTHFR: There are several causes for high homocysteine levels but the most common is the mthfr gene mutation. The mutation affects the metabolism of folic acid, which utilizes b12. Often, blood levels look normal but the body is actually not able to process the vitamins so the homocysteine remains elevated. Also, the B12 and folate might look "normal" but might not be optimal. More tests are needed. ...Read more

Homocysteine supreme: Metanx has a special type of folate (folic acid) that more readily enters the central nervous system at least according to the manufacturer. Homocysteine supreme does not have this type of folate (folic acid) but you could try it if your only goal is to lower homocysteine levels. If you have any neurological symptoms of folate (folic acid) deficiency (numbness, dizziness, fatigue, etc) the metanx might be a better choice ...Read more
