I'm 23 years old male, my homocystein level is 50 mmol/L. Is it really dangerous? Is there any possibility of death in the next 5 years because of high level of homocysteine?

thank you.

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  Medical studies show that homocysteine levels above 6.3 are unhealthy and associated with a steep, progressive risk of coronary artery disease and heart attack. Reference: 1Robinson K., et al. Hyperhomocysteinemia and low pyridoxal phosphate. Common and independent reversible risk factors for coronary artery disease. Circulation. 1995 Nov 15;92(10):2825-30.
This is definitely an issue that you need to talk with your Cardiologist about.  I am sorry I could not be of more help.
