Homocysteine Test | Bath

The importance of homocysteine as a marker for health and wellbeing is becoming clearer. There are an increasing number of studies that show homocysteine to be a predictor of potential health problems. Raised blood homocysteine concentrations can both predict the development of heart disease and strokes; in older people even better than any usual measure of risk including cholesterol, blood pressure or smoking.

Women with high homocysteine levels find it harder  to conceive and are at risk from repeated early  miscarriage. Raised levels of homocysteine have also  been implicated in migraine and linked to Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, declining memory, poor concentration and judgement and lowered mood.
