About the Test

This panel measures the levels of the following 10 vitamins and minerals in your blood: vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin D, calcium, iodine, iron, omega-3 and omega-6, and zinc.

Identifying and correcting nutritional deficiencies is an important step toward better health. Your body does not produce most vitamins and minerals, so you must get them from food or supplements. How nutrients work in your body is influenced by more than just what you eat. These factors include genetics, age, health conditions, medications, metabolism, and how well your body absorbs nutrients.

Dietary restrictions may make it difficult to get the nutrients your body needs. Having these nutrients tested helps you and your doctor decide if you need to modify or supplement your diet.
