GP does not agree to a homocysteine serum Test or methylmalonic acid test.
GP explains B12 Normal not low in the Range130-800pg/L
My Result 155pg/L?
I agree: Testing involving homocysteine and one of the genes involved in its metabolism, and methylmalonic acid screens, have been heavily promoted to the public as tests that should be part of routine health care. Most of my fellow-pathologists are skeptical at best. I'd be thankful for good health as demonstrated in your serum B12 and look for some other explanation for whatever symptoms / signs you have ...Read more

Methylmalonic acid was 115 nmol/mL and Folic acid was 24ng/mL. No reference ranges were listed. Are these normal? I have Fe deficiency anemia.

Homocysteine 10.9 normal is lower than 10.4. B12 folic acid came back normal. So what else can cause it to be high?
Stop worrying: Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside. I wouldn't give that stuff another thought. A decade ago, this was being tooted as a new coronary risk factor but most of the pathologists I know disregard it. Your B12 and folate (folic acid) are fine.
