Description:

Basic Vitamin Deficiency Panel

This package includes several common tests for vitamin levels.  Maintaining healthy levels of essential vitamins and nutrients is an important part of overall health.  Vitamin deficiencies can be the result of an improper diet or underlying health conditions such as digestive problems or malabsorption disorders. Deficiencies in one or more vitamins can be difficult to diagnose because it may take a while for symptoms to develop and many symptoms are common to other illnesses.  Some of the symptoms of vitamin deficiency include fatigue, unexplained weight loss or gain, pale skin, dry patches of skin, confusion, poor circulation, brittle hair or nails,  bleeding gums, hair loss, and poor vision.  Blood testing to check your vitamin levels can help identify which vitamins you may need to focus on getting more of through adjusting your diet or taking supplements.

This package includes:

  • Vitamin B12 and Folate: B12 and Folate (Folic Acid) play important roles in a number of bodily functions including the production of red and white blood cells, repairing damaged cells and tissues, and maintaining healthy nervous system function.
  • Vitamin D: A Vitamin D 25 Hydroxy test measures the combined level of D2 and D3, the primary forms of vitamin D.  Vitamin D is important for maintaining the body's immune system as well as the healthy development of bones and teeth.

Vitamin testing can be ordered by anyone who is interested in checking their levels.  These tests can be helpful for people who are monitoring their nutritional plan or are concerned that they may have symptoms of one or more deficiencies.  We also offer larger panels with more tests including the Comprehensive Vitamin Panel and Ultimate Vitamin Panel.  See our Vitamin Testing Category and Nutrition Testing Category for even more options.

Turnaround for these tests is typically 1-3 business days.  

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.

Requirements:

Fasting for 8-12 hours prior to collection is recommended.  Specimens should be drawn before Schilling test, transfusions, or B12 therapy are started.

It is recommended that someone taking Biotin (also known as vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H, or coenzyme R) stop consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of a sample.
