The measurement of Homocysteines used in the evaluation of risk factors associated with atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, and arterial/venous thromboembolism.

Higher levels of homocysteine may imply a deficiency in the process of 'methylation' - which may affect the production of B vitamins, and ultimately lead to deficiencies of them (eg vitamin B12 and Folate). Reduction of the level of homocysteine is also desirable for optimising long term health, in particular reducing lifetime risk of heart disease, and possibly for reducing fatigue.
