Homocysteine Test – Blood Test – USA

Description

It’s Estimated that anywhere from 44%-85% of Americans have a gene mutation (namely MTHFR mutation) that can affect methylation! Homocysteine is a great pre-test to a full methylation test for those on a budget or who don’t want to spend on the more expensive (and comprehensive) genetic methylation testing. Homocysteine is involved in methylation, and often if there are gene mutations affecting methylation you will see elevated homocysteine tests. So yes this test is cheaper, but if you have elevated levels, I recommend a follow-up full methylation panel, because it will tell you where those methylation issues lie; what gene mutations you have connected to methylation. And comes with a lengthy detailed report by a team of genomics trained doctors and nutrition experts that explains diet and supplement recommendations for your genetics, which you can get started on. This test won’t tell you much, other then that there is a problem, but it’s a good start for those that want to see if NutriGenetics plays a part in their health issues, which for many it does!

Please Note: this can also serve as a hyperhomocysteinemia test.

Homocysteine Blood Test

The body produces homocysteine as a part of the methylation process, a process needed for our cells to function properly. When that process doesn’t have everything it needs like vitamin B 12, B6, folic acid, and others, homocysteine can build up.

Homocysteine is very dangerous to the cardiovascular and neurological systems. Knowing your homocysteine levels can help you and your doctor develop a plan to help lower levels. Using the homocysteine blood test can also help monitor levels to prevent them from becoming slowly elevated in the future.
