How to Take the Test

Discovering your own homocysteine level is an important health check. Raised levels of homocysteine have been implicated in the development of heart disease and strokes in older people. Increased levels have also been linked to:
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Migraine
  • Dementia
  • Declining Memory
  • Poor Concentration
  • Low Mood
  • Male & Female Infertility
Between 10-15% of the population has a genetic defect contributing to raised homocysteine levels.  You are more likely to be at risk if you are overweight, take little or no exercise, smoke or drink alcohol excessively. The good news is that raised homocysteine levels can usually be brought back to normal levels by simple dietary changes and / or supplementation with B vitamins. Understanding your current level and the implication of this on your health is important in understanding how to make improvements to your wellbeing.

Used this twice, and homocysteine has reduced from 18 to 14 in 3 months. Adjusting vitamin/nutrient supplements and diet with 3 monthly retests then annual check tests will hopefully bring my levels right down to a superhealthy 5-6. The test is easy to do with the instructions provided, and the lab service I cannot fault! Delighted to have this test available, as it wasn't offered to me either NHS or private. This was a diagnosis based on my own case research, and what a finding, as I had been suffering from terrible fatigue and clot near misses.
