Homocysteine is a type of amino acid that flows through your blood. Your body may contain this acid if you consume meat more often. A higher amount of homocysteine leads to poor cardiac health. It can also be responsible for increasing the risk of heart disorders at an early age.
Homocysteine is a chemical component that is useful to make proteins. Vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and folic acid break homocysteine in its simpler form. This simplified form is utilized and absorbed by your body.
After a successful breakdown, your bloodstream must contain a very little amount of homocysteine. Low intake or presence of vitamins may be one of the reasons for a higher amount of homocysteine in your system. If the levels of this amino acid are high in your test reports, your doctor may suggest you to get your vitamin levels evaluated, or ask you to increase intake of vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. High levels of homocysteine can also be a sign of cardiac disorder. Some cases have shown that this can be an inherited problem as well.
The test is suggested for the following reasons:
The test is a part of the newborn screening examination. In this examination, the test is performed to check whether the baby is suffering from homocystinuria, an inherited illness that does not allow one's body to breakdown specific type of proteins. Homocystinuria is a major threat to your health and affects you from an early stage of childhood. Therefore, this screening is carried out as a part of a routine examination in newborns.
