Abstract

Despite these limitations, this study suggests that cardiac rehabilitation and exercise training may significantly reduce homocysteine levels in normolipidemic patients with CAD and hyperhomocysteinemia. This 12% reduction in homocysteine levels noted in our study would be expected to produce 20% to 30% reductions in CAD risk. Further larger studies are needed to confirm our findings on the additional beneficial effect of exercise training in patients with CAD.
