seo: date:2024/3/13 10:43:00

When measuring homocysteine, the following precautions should be taken:

1. Patients should undergo a blood test on an empty stomach or 2 hours after meals in the morning to avoid the influence of food on the test results.

2. Before inspection, avoid consuming high-fat foods such as fatty meat and animal organs. Because these foods can interfere with the detection results of HCY.

3. For patients who take certain medications for a long time, such as antiepileptics, antidepressants, etc., they should inform their doctors before the examination, as these medications may affect the level of HCY.

If there is a history of smoking, smoking should be stopped for 24 hours before the examination, as smoking can affect HCY levels.

If you have a history of drinking alcohol, you should avoid drinking alcohol before the examination, as alcohol can interfere with the HCY test results.

If there is any physical discomfort, such as fever, cold, skin infection, etc., it should be checked again after returning to normal.

7. For basic diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, etc., doctors should be informed that these diseases may affect the level of HCY.

During the examination process, it is necessary to comply with the relevant regulations of the laboratory, such as keeping quiet and following the instructions of medical staff for the examination.

For patients with abnormal examination results, such as high levels of homocysteine, further examination and treatment should be carried out under the guidance of a doctor.
