Conclusions
Diagnostic Utility

In addition to very significant analytical error, both Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology and PaLMS quote a homocystein cut-off that is significantly above the level recommended by experts. This could cause some cases of vitamin B12 deficiency to be missed.

Having regard to the results of my investigation, set out in this web site, in my opinion, Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology and PaLMS homocysteine quoted cut-off cannot be relied on for the diagnosis or monitoring of vitamin B12 deficiency.
