In some cases homocysteine remains high even though plenty of B vitamins have been taken, including lots of B12. Definitely should look at kidneys in those cases.

And, to reinforce the kidney/B12 connection, for a very long time elevated methylmalonic acid has been known to indicate either low B12 or kidney problem.

So many interesting and important connections are being explored now. MS and B12 deficiency is another one.
