Active-B12 is an innovative method for assessing Vitamin B12 status and offers improved accuracy, sensitivity and specificity over current laboratory methods. Vitamin B12 and folate are primarily requested to help diagnose the cause of macrocytic anaemia. Folate and vitamin B12 may be used to help evaluate the nutritional status of a patient with signs of significant malnutrition or malabsorption.
Anaemia if left untreated, B12 deficiency can result in irreversible neurological damage. Early and accurate detection of Vitamin B12 deficiency is therefore vital. Anaemia is a condition that occurs when you have fewer red blood cells than normal, or that you have less haemoglobin than normal in each red blood cell.
Our Vitamin and Mineral deficiency is a comprehensive test for Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Albumin Protein, Iron, Folate, Calcium and Magnesium. The vitamin and mineral deficiency health test provides valuable information on your health and wellness from a single finger prick sample. The test will help you to optimise your energy levels and well-being.
Vitamin B12 is found in animal products such as red meat, fish, poultry, milk, and eggs. B12 is necessary for normal red blood cell production, tissue and cellular repair, and DNA synthesis. B12 is also important for nerve health. A deficiency of B12 can lead to anaemia and nerve damage.
