What is a Vitamin B12 test?
The Vitamin B12 test checks the extent of Vitamin B12 in your blood. Having a Vitamin B12 deficiency, or a low level of this essential vitamin, can cause a variety of health issues, including anaemia and nervous system issues. Vitamin B12 levels could also be below for a variety of reasons, including inadequate dietary intake, the utilisation of certain medications, advanced age, or conditions that make it hard for the body to soak up the Vitamin B12 from food.
When is the Vitamin B12 test recommended?
It is recommended:
To diagnose anaemia.
To evaluate nutritional status.
To identify the neuropathy (numbness and pain due to nerve damage).
To monitor the treatment for Vitamin B12.
What does the Vitamin B12 test measure?
The Vitamin B12 test is to measure:
Vitamin B12 may be a nutrient that is very important for several aspects of human health.
Adequate levels of Vitamin B12 are needed for your body to take care of a healthy nervous system, make red blood cells, and make DNA, the genetic material present in all of our cells.
Vitamin B12 occurs naturally in animal proteins like meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy. Usually, other foods, like breakfast cereals, nutritional yeast, and a few plant pints of milk, can also be fortified with Vitamin B12.
In food, Vitamin B12 is sure to cause protein. So, as your body will soak it up, the vitamin must be released from the protein. So, as your body digests the food, enzymes in your alimentary canal separate Vitamin B12 from these proteins.
Together, Vitamin B12 and factors are absorbed in the lower end of the tiny intestine.

The reports will take about 7 hrs after the blood sample is collected.
