Checked my blood tests paperwork - and don't see homocysteine anywhere. There's so many abbreviations, have to look up what most of them are every time.
Don't know if the rheumy I saw last week ordered it. But it wasn't a fasting test, he sent me straight from his office to the hospital lab. Is it supposed to be a fasting test?
And I checked my supplements, and realized I'm currently taking between 7 and 11mg of b6 daily (yes milligrams, not micrograms). Would that be enough to "treat" high homocysteine and should I stop it for a while in order to get an accurate blood test (for diagnosis purposes)?
Or do gene testing. I'm mulling that over. The price has dropped a lot, so maybe. I'd have to look into what the best one would be, though. Or try to convince my GP that my insurance should pay for one. Hmm.
