Elevated Homocysteine Found in Autistic Children

In a study involving 34 autistic and 21 non-autistic healthy children, the levels of homocysteine found in the urine were significantly higher in the autistic children (2.36), as compared to non-autistic children (0.76). The authors hypothesize that the higher level found in autistic children may indicate deficiencies of folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12. The effects of supplementation with these micronutrients as a way of improving homocysteine levels in this population requires further research.
