Description:

A homocysteine test measures the amount of the amino acid homocysteine in the blood.

 

A homocysteine blood test is done to:

  • Help identify vitamin B12 deficiency or folic acid deficiency. But other tests for these deficiencies are available.

  • Help identify a rare inherited disease (homocystinuria) that causes a deficiency of one of several enzymes needed to convert food to energy.

  • Help determine a cause for otherwise unexplained blood clots.
