Hello... Homocysteine levels increase in the body when the metabolism to cysteine of methionine to cysteine is impaired. it could be genetic or acquired , if it's enzyme deficiency cannot be cured, if may be due to dietary deficiencies in vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and folic acid. In such cases replenishment of vitamin will correct homocystein levels..
