empower Homocysteine

The empowerDX Homocysteine Metabolism Genetic Test is an innovative analysis that should be considered for several reasons. Excess homocysteine in the body due to metabolic changes can lead to vascular damage such as arteriosclerosis, heart attack, stroke, and thrombosis. Additionally, elevated homocysteine levels before conception and during pregnancy are associated with an increased risk of foetal neural tube malformations such as spina bifida and anencephaly.

Genetic testing analyses genetic variations involved in homocysteine metabolism and identifies polymorphisms that may affect the body's ability to properly metabolize this amino acid. This analysis is particularly important because elevated blood homocysteine levels represent a new risk factor for cardiovascular disease and may amplify the negative effects of traditional risk factors on vascular health.

Genetic testing for homocysteine metabolism may be useful in people with traditional risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as older age, diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and obesity, as well as in people who develop cardiovascular disease at a younger age.

Collecting a DNA sample is very easy. It can be done in the comfort of your own home using an oral swab, following the kit's instructions. Once collection is complete, simply free post the sample back to us in the provided mailing bag.
