Test Details & Preparation

  • Vitamin B complex (B1) test is done to screen for and detect moderate to severe vitamin B deficiencies.

  • Vitamin B complex (B1) test is performed when someone has symptoms that may be due to a B vitamin deficiency is at risk for a deficiency or has a condition associated with malabsorption.

  • A blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm a random or 24-hour urine sample may also be collected for a Vitamin B complex (B1) test.

  • Fasting is usually required for a Vitamin B complex (B1) test.

  • Test results that are low may indicate a B vitamin deficiency but will not reveal whether it is due to an inadequate supply or an inability to absorb or use available B vitamins. When a person is deficient, they often have multiple vitamin deficiencies.

  • If test results are normal, then it is more likely that a person's symptoms are due to another cause.

  • A high B vitamin level may be associated with vitamin toxicity. This rarely occurs and when it does, it is usually due to exposure to high doses of the vitamin.

  • A person may sometimes be diagnosed and treated for a B vitamin deficiency based upon clinical findings and a response to treatment, rather than testing. For instance, if a doctor suspects a B1 deficiency, he may prescribe B vitamin supplements and then monitor his patient to see if their symptoms resolve.
