Polymorphisms of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) have been well documented to cause hyperhomocysteinemia, and recent studies suggest an association of C677T mutation of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase with low bone mineral density (BMD). In this study, the association of plasma total homocysteine (Hcy), plasma folate, and vitamin B12 as well… CONTINUE READING
