I was tested for blood homocysteine levels, still waiting, because my B12 levels and iron are always low. It was suggested by the lab to test further.

I have low homocysteine level. Doctor prescribed folic acid. I had deep vein thrombosis 3 times, 2 of which were while on Coumadin; I am now on Xarelto.
