  author={Sachan Rekha and Ml Patel and Gupta Pooja and Sachan Pushpalata},
Background and Aims: The present study was done to evaluate serum homocysteine level and its correlation with metabolic (S. glucose level, S. insulin level and HOMA-IR.) and anthropometric parameter (BMI) amongst over weight, obese and non obese infertile women. Methods: This cross sectional prospective study was conducted in Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, CSM Medical University, Lucknow, UP, India. After informed consent total 90 infertile women were enrolled, which included 29…

Assessment of Homocysteine Plasma Levels and Insulin Resistance among Obese Women with Anovulatory Infertility
This study was conducted to assess homocysteine plasma level and insulin resistance profile (blood glucose level, plasma insulin level, HOMA-IR, body mass index) among different groups (non-obese,
Effects of training versus short exercise session on homocysteine levels in women with different body mass
Purpose. Homocysteine is a non-protein amino acid and elevated blood levels are often caused by inappropriate lifestyles, leading to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. the aim of this study
The Role of Glycemic Control on Homocysteine Levels in Type 2 Diabetic Patients in Iraqi People
Hyperhomocysteinaemia has emerged as a novel risk factor for cardiovascular disease . In noninsulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM ), cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the major

It is suggested that the risk of diabetes, obesity, and coronary artery disease may increase due to high triglyceride or low HDL levels in the absence of vitamin B12.
Changes in Serum Levels of Vitamin B12, Folic acid and Homocysteine in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes before and after Treatment with Metformin. Asian J. Med. Pharm. Res., 6 (4): 46-52
Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common chronic disorders in the world. Previous investigations have suggested that metformin, as a key treatment option in type 2 diabetes, may lead to
Effect of Folic Acid and Vitamin B12 Supplementation on Homocysteine Level in association with MTHFR C677T Polymorphisms in Overweight Female Adults
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is known as the leading cause of death and disability worldwide, including Indonesia. In 2008, an estimated of 17.3 million people died from CVDs and by 2030, it is
The effect of folic acid in women with recurrent pregnancy loss, polycystic ovary syndrome and hyperhomocysterinemia
The purpose of this study was to assess the prevention of recurrent pregnancy loss in females with polycystic ovary syndrome and hyperhomocysteine by administration of folic acid 5 milligram/day.

Insulin sensitivity and plasma homocysteine concentrations in non-diabetic obese and normal weight subjects.
It is concluded that in vitamin replete lean and obese individuals, insulin sensitivity correlates significantly with plasma tHcy, and this relationship may need to be considered when evaluating the role of plasma homocysteine as a risk factor in patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Insulin resistance is not related to plasma homocysteine concentration in healthy premenapausal women.
The results suggest that plasma homocysteine concentrations are not related to insulin resistance and/or metabolic abnormalities associated with it in premenopausal women.
Insulin resistance and weight gain in postmenopausal women of diverse ethnic groups
Insulin resistance appears to be a predictor of weight gain in postmenopausal women, except for the most obese women.
Elevated plasma homocysteine in obese schoolchildren with early atherosclerosis
Plasma homocysteine is elevated in obese schoolchildren with hypertension and dyslipidaemia, particularly in girls, which may indicate a high-risk constellation, so that plasma homocy steine should be monitored in these children.
Fasting plasma homocysteine levels in the insulin resistance syndrome: the Framingham offspring study.
Hyperhomocysteinemia and abnormal urinary albumin excretion are both associated with hyperinsulinemia and may partially account for increased risk of CVD associated with insulin resistance, and support the hypothesis that endothelial dysfunction is associated with expression of the IRS.
Impaired fasting glycaemia in middle-aged women: a prospective study
Women who developed IFG during the menopausal transition exhibited significantly higher levels of body fatness and dyslipidemia, premenopausally, compared with the women who did not develop IFG.
Hyperhomocysteinemia correlates with insulin resistance and low-grade systemic inflammation in obese prepubertal children.
Higher homocysteine levels in obese prepubertal children and their possible association with both metabolic syndrome and various inflammatory biomarkers and leptin suggest that Hcy could play a role in the higher risk of cardiovascular disease in obesity.
Endogenous sex steroids and circulating homocysteine in healthy Greek postmenopausal women.
Endogenous estrogens and not androgens are related to serum homocysteine values in postmenopausal women, and whether this association has clinical implications remains to be clarified.
Effect of age on plasma homocysteine concentrations in young and elderly subjects considering serum vitamin concentrations and different lifestyle factors.
Higher tHcy concentrations in the elderly, in comparison to younger women, are due to lower serum concentrations of PLP, vitamin B-12, and folate, whereas within the age group of elderly subjects alone tH Cy concentrations increase with age irrespective of serum vitamin concentrations.
Homocysteine Level and Coronary Artery Disease
Data show that hyperhomocysteinemia is related to CAD as an independent risk factor in an Iranian population without any risk factors, and a linear correlation between homocysteine level and numbers of coronary artery involvement was present.
