What is hyperhomocysteinemia ?  Hyperhomocysteinemia and Clot Formation Buffalo

 

 

 

Hyperhomocysteinemia is a rare condition that is either inherited or an acquired condition. It is inherited as an autosomal dominant manner. Hyperhomocysteinemia results from abnormal metabolism of methionine. This metabolic derangement in hyperhomocysteinemia results in decreased activation of protein C and impaired binding of the plasminogen activator. Hyperhomocysteinemia is associated with venous thromboembolism and arterial clot formation.

 

Acquired hyperhomocysteinemia is from nutritinal deficiencies of folate (folic acid), cobalamine and pyridoxine.
