Homocysteine test is a fasting test, no food to be taken from the night before.

Homocysteine is a naturally occurring sulphur containing amino acid. It is involved in essential chemical pathways in the body and an increasing number of medical experts are saying that raised levels of homocysteine may be more important than raised levels of cholesterol.

In Ireland, heart disease is our number one killer with approximately 10,000 dying each year from cardiovascular disease (CVD) so homocysteine is a very good test to do.

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. However, everyone is unique and different factors, including genetics, make it virtually impossible to determine an individuals’ nutritional requirements without assessing levels of homocysteine first, and then monitoring dietary changes to ensure that acceptable homocysteine levels are reached.

The Lorisian Homocysteine test is an easy test that delivers reliable laboratory test results within just 10 days.

Raised blood homocysteing 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 Alzhimer's disease, dementia, declining memory, poor concentration and judgement and lowered mood.
