Test Details
Test Code:PL0283
Test Name:Vitamin B6
Test Details & Preparation
Vitamin B test may be used to screen for and detect deficiencies in those with characteristic symptoms. Testing may also be used for those who have a condition that puts them at risk of B vitamin deficiencies. This may include those with a limited or inadequate diet, those with signs of malnutrition, those being given their nutrition intravenously and those who have had gastric bypass surgery. Testing may also be performed on those with alcoholism or with chronic diseases associated with malabsorption, such as Celiac disease.

Vitamin B test s primarily ordered when a person has symptoms that may be due to a B vitamin deficiency. Symptoms depend on the vitamins that are deficient. Some of the common ones include rash, dermatitis inflamed tongue, sores on the lips or in the mouth, cracks at the corners of the mouth numbness, tingling or burning in the hands or feet anaemia irritability, difficulty with memory, depression.

B vitamin testing may be used when a person has a condition that puts them at risk for a deficiency. Those at increased risk include people who are malnourished, are chronic alcoholics, or who have a condition such as Celiac disease that is associated with malabsorption.

B vitamin toxicity rarely occurs so testing for this purpose is not often done. High concentrations of a few of the B vitamins may affect the liver or nervous system.

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 B6 deficiency, he may prescribe B vitamin supplements and then monitor his patient to see if their symptoms resolve.
