    I am very satisfied with the company and regularly load my blood tests. The only pity is that you don't get a confirmation when the blood has arrived. That would be an added value...

    Product Description

    MMA Methylmalonic Acid and Homocysteine in Blood - Copy

    This test consists of Methylmalonic Acid in blood (serum) and Homocysteine


    Methylmalonic acid is an organic acid that is usually elevated in a B12 deficiency. If the regular B12 test does not provide clarity, this test can be done to clarify if there is a B12 deficiency.

    Elevated serum values of MMA are also found in people with renal insufficiency, hypovolemia (low circulating blood volume) and bacterial overgrowth in the intestines. Thus, in these cases, the value of MMA cannot be used to diagnose B12 deficiency, but of course a B12 deficiency may exist simultaneously. One can however test MMA in urine in kidney patients (and hypovolemia).

    This test is should be kept cool. Blood samples should be taken Monday through Thursday and sent according to the instructions provided. In the summer, when it is hot, it is better to test MMA in urine.
