The condition is more common in people over 60 years, and in women and in people with other autoimmune conditions, such as primary myxoedema, thyrotoxicosis, Hashimoto's disease, Addison's disease and vitiligo.

However, levels may not accurately indicate a deficiency in people aged over 65 years with kidney disease, small bowel bacterial overgrowth or reduced fluid content of the blood because these conditions can also cause elevated MMA levels (Devalia et al. 2014; Hunt et al. 2014). T otal serum Hcy is an indicator of vitamin B12 deficiency because cobalamin is needed for the synthesis of methionine from Hcy, and low levels of vitamin B12 lead to increased total serum Hcy
