Vitamin A Test evaluates the amount of Vitamin A in the blood.
Vitamin A is needed for growth, for strong teeth and bones, for healthy skin and for eye health.
The body does not produce vitamin A so it relies on dietary sources of vitamin A.
Sources of Vitamin A are liver, dairy products, fish liver oils, some vegetables and fruits.
The most common symptom of Vitamin A deficiency is night blindness (and sometimes dry eyes, skin or hair loss).
Vitamin B6 test measures the levels of this vitamin in the blood.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is a water soluble vitamin that produces red blood cells, it synthesizes Serotonin and Dopamine, in general it maintains a healthy immune and nervous system.
A deficiency of vitamin B6 can decrease your production of antibodies and suppress your immune system.
Folate Test measures the level of Folate (folic acid, vitamin B-9) in the blood.
Folate is a vitamin that helps produce red blood cells and is required for DNA synthesis. Red blood cells deliver oxygen to the entire body, so they are vital for maintaining overall health.
This test is important since Folate deficiencies may cause anemia and cardiovascular diseases.
Symptoms associated with deficiency of Folic Acid may include forgetfulness, cognitive decline, depression, irritability, etc.
Vitamin B12 Test measures the B12 blood level. The Vitamin B12 Test has a wide range of roles in the body and it is required for production of red blood cells and for DNA synthesis.
The Vitamin B12 test is used to aid in the diagnosis of anemia and to determine overall nutritional health.
A deficiency of B12 can cause a condition known as macrocytic anemia (red blood cells get larger than normal) and neuropathy (nerve damage)
Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy Test measures the amount of vitamin D in the body. Vitamin D helps regulate calcium and phosphate. Concentrations of Vitamin D provide a picture of renal health, also a deficiency of vitamin D can lead to bone weakness, bad teeth, increased risk of a heart attack, cancer, respiratory disorders and immune system dysfunction.
The body gets vitamin D from the skin (through exposure to the sun) and from certain foods and supplements.
The vitamin E test measures the amount of this vitamin in the body.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps protect cells and tissue in the body.
Low levels of vitamin E can cause nerve problems and anemia. High levels of vitamin E can cause increased bleeding.
One likely cause of vitamin E deficiency is intestinal malabsorption.
