Homocysteine Test Overview
Homocysteine test measures the amount of homocysteine in your blood. Homocysteine is a type of amino acid used to make proteins. Vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and folic acid helps to break down homocysteine and change it into other substances your body needs. If you have high levels of homocysteine in your blood, it may be associated with a vitamin deficiency, heart disease, or a rare inherited disorder (homocysteinuria)
