Folate Blood Test

This test measures Folate (Folic Acid) levels in the blood.  Folate is one of the B vitamins.  The body uses folate for growth and development as well as the production of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.  Folate is not produced naturally by the body and must be supplied by a person's diet.  It is found in foods such as liver, citrus, green leafy vegetables, milk, kidney and yeast.  A Folate blood test can help determine the cause for anemia or aid in the diagnosis of malnutrition or malabsorption.

The Folate blood test is typically ordered when someone has symptoms of anemia or vitamin deficiency.  It may also be ordered as a follow up to irregular results from a CBC test such as a low RBC count or a high MCV.  This test is also be used to monitor someone who is being treated for folate deficiency.

Folate is also included in the Vitamin B12 and Folate Blood Test.

Turnaround time for the Folate test is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.


The Folate test has no fasting requirements.
