The Vitamin Deficiency Test: Vitamin Levels Base Assessment panel contains 6 tests with 12 biomarkers.

Vitamin Deficiency Test: Vitamin Levels Base Assessment

Purpose: The Vitamin Deficiency Test: Vitamin Levels Base Assessment is designed to evaluate an individual's nutritional status by measuring the levels of essential vitamins in the body. This comprehensive panel assesses key vitamins including Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin), Folate, 25-Hydroxyvitamin D (D2, D3), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal Phosphate), Vitamin E (Tocopherol), Vitamin A (Retinol), and Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin). These vitamins play crucial roles in various physiological processes, and their deficiencies can lead to a wide range of health issues.

Lab Tests Included:

Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) and Folate Panel, Serum:

Benefit: Vitamin B12 and Folate are vital for the formation of red blood cells, neurological function, and DNA synthesis. This panel helps in diagnosing deficiencies that can lead to anemia, fatigue, neuropathy, and cognitive impairments. Identifying deficiencies early allows for timely intervention through dietary changes or supplementation, preventing long-term complications.

QuestAssureD™ 25-Hydroxyvitamin D (D2, D3), LC/MS/MS:

Benefit: Vitamin D is crucial for bone health, immune function, and overall well-being. This test measures the levels of both Vitamin D2 and D3, providing a comprehensive assessment of vitamin D status. Deficiency in Vitamin D is associated with increased risk of osteoporosis, weakened immune system, mood disorders, and muscle weakness. Monitoring vitamin D levels helps in optimizing supplementation and sun exposure, thereby reducing the risk of related health issues.

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal Phosphate):

Benefit: Vitamin B6 is involved in over 100 enzymatic reactions in the body, including amino acid metabolism, neurotransmitter synthesis, and hemoglobin production. This test assesses the active form of Vitamin B6, pyridoxal phosphate, providing insights into its availability for essential physiological processes. Deficiency in Vitamin B6 can manifest as anemia, depression, confusion, and nerve damage. Monitoring Vitamin B6 levels aids in ensuring adequate intake through diet or supplements, promoting overall health and well-being.

Vitamin E (Tocopherol):

Benefit: Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from oxidative damage, supports immune function, and promotes healthy skin. This test measures the levels of tocopherol, the primary form of Vitamin E found in the body. Deficiency in Vitamin E may impair immune function, increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, and lead to neurological problems. Monitoring Vitamin E levels allows for targeted supplementation and dietary adjustments to maintain optimal antioxidant status and overall health.

Vitamin A (Retinol):

Benefit: Vitamin A plays a critical role in vision, immune function, and cell growth and differentiation. This test measures the levels of retinol, the active form of Vitamin A, in the blood. Deficiency in Vitamin A can cause night blindness, dry skin, impaired immune function, and reproductive issues. Monitoring Vitamin A levels helps in identifying deficiencies early and implementing interventions such as dietary modification or supplementation to prevent associated health problems.

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Plasma:

Benefit: Vitamin B2 is essential for energy production, metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates, and maintenance of healthy skin and eyes. This test measures the levels of riboflavin in the blood, providing insights into its availability for vital physiological functions. Deficiency in Vitamin B2 can lead to skin disorders, oral ulcers, anemia, and impaired growth in children. Monitoring Vitamin B2 levels aids in ensuring adequate intake through diet or supplements, promoting overall health and well-being.

Check out the Vitamin Deficiency Test: Vitamin Levels Plus Assessment that includes these additional five tests:

Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), LC/MS/MS

Vitamin B3 (Nicotinic acid)

Vitamin C

Vitamin K

 

Conclusion: The Vitamin Deficiency Test: Vitamin Levels Base Assessment offers a comprehensive evaluation of essential vitamins, providing valuable insights into an individual's nutritional status and potential health risks associated with deficiencies. Early detection of vitamin deficiencies enables targeted interventions, including dietary modifications and supplementation, to optimize health and prevent related complications. Regular monitoring of vitamin levels is essential for maintaining overall well-being and quality of life.
