Vitamin Deficiency Blood Test
Whether you want to evaluate your nutrition plan, or just want to be sure you're getting enough of the good stuff, this package includes a collection of tests that can screen for nutrition or absorption issues along with certain types of anemia; it also measures Vitamin D, a significant factor in bone health.
Fast for 12 hours (no food or drink, except water) before sample collection. If you’re taking a supplement containing biotin (also called vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H, or coenzyme R), commonly found in products promoting nail, skin, and hair health, it is recommended that you wait at least 72 hours from your last dose before sample collection.
