I am 31 with elevated homosysteine (48) my wifes level is ok we r planning for babyis it safe with my elevated homosysteine. I am taking B12 B6 & folic?

Yes, however...: This should be safe. However, elevated homocysteine increases your risk of heart disease and stroke. This is genetic so your child may have high homocysteine which should be treated from a young age. You should add trimethylglycine to your program. Many with high homocysteine do better with the l-5-mthf form of folic acid- this can help depression too. Adjust doses until your levels come to normal. ...Read more
