BIOMARKERS: -- Vitamin D 25-OH -- Vitamin B12 -- Vitamin B9 (Folate) Sample: BLOOD Results: 4 HRS Phlebotomy fee: £15 Code: S-VP1-4HRS NOTES VITAMIN B12 Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential for various bodily functions. It plays a crucial role in several processes, including red blood cell formation, neurological function, dna synthesis and cofactor for enzymes in metabolism. Low levels can lead to: -- Anaemia: either the production of large abnormal RBC that do not function property or autoimmune condition in which the body does not produce enough protein needed for B12 absorption. -- Neurological symptoms: numbness and tingling in extremities, difficulty walking, memory issues -- Gastrointestinal issues - diarrhea or constipation VITAMIN D 25-OH Vitamin D (VD) is a fat-soluble vitamin that is crucial for several physiological functions in the body. There are two main forms of VD: vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). In the body the liver converts VD into 25(OH)VD, which is the primary circulating and storage form of VD in the body. Low levels of VD can lead to: -- weakened bones, increased risk of fractures, and conditions like rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. -- higher risk of various health problems, including autoimmune diseases, certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, and mood disorders. High levels of VD can lead to: -- vitamin D toxicity and symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, weakness, frequent urination, and elevated levels of calcium in the blood. Long-term toxicity can lead to kidney stones and other complications. FOLATE Folate, also known as vitamin B9, is a water-soluble B vitamin that is essential for several important functions in the body. It plays a crucial role in various metabolic processes, including the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and proteins. Folate is particularly important during periods of rapid cell division and growth, such as during pregnancy and infancy. It also plays a role in the formation of red blood cells and the conversion of homocysteine (an amino acid) into methionine. Low levels of folate could lead to: -- anaemia characterized by the production of large, immature red blood cells that do not function properly leading to fatigue, weakness, pale skin, and shortness of breath. --neural tube defects during pregnancy and other birth defects -- poor growth in infants and children
