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.
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.
