Specimen Type: Blood
Vitamin E Blood Test (Labcorp)
This test measures Vitamin E levels in the blood. Vitamin E is an antioxidant which plays a role in a number of healthy bodily processes. It can also help prevent or delay conditions such as Cardiovascular Disease and cancer. This test provides measurements for 2 forms of Vitamin E, Alpha Tocopherol and Gamma Tocopherol. Vitamin E is found in a number of foods including fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, eggs and cereals. Most people naturally get enough Vitamin E in their diet so deficiency is rare. However, deficiency can occur in people who are chronically malnourished or have malabsorption disorders such as Cystic Fibrosis, Celiac Disease or Crohn's Disease.
Vitamin E testing is typically done to monitor someone with a malabsorption disorder or children who are malnourished.
