Hi, Why did you get your homocysteine levels checked? Do you have anemia? Deficiencies of the vitamins folic acid , pyridoxine (B6), or B12 (cyanocobalamin) can lead to high homocysteine levels.c Homocheck is a combination of vitamins folic acid, B6 and or B12 and supplementation will result in correction of homocysteine levels. You can take the tablets till you have a normal homocycteine levels, normal range 5.9 -15.3 mMol/l Get checked for the homocysteine levels once a month and please inform your doctor and keep him updated. All the best
