Markers for the functional availability of cobalamin/folate and their association with neuropsychiatric symptoms in the elderly.
Int J Geriatr Psychiatry. 2001 Sep; 16(9):873-8.IJ

Abstract

Cobalamin/folate deficiency is common in elderly subjects and may lead to psychiatric symptoms, but even more often it increases the severity of other organic and non-organic mental diseases. This paper reviews the literature relevant for markers of cobalamin/folate status and their relation to neuropsychiatric symptoms in the elderly. Plasma homocysteine, a marker of cobalamin/folate status, is frequently increased in psychogeriatric patients. Among markers of cobalamin/folate status, plasma homocysteine shows the best association with neuropsychiatric dysfunction.
