TB12

A vitamin B-12 level test checks the amount of vitamin B-12 in the blood to gauge the body's overall vitamin B-12 stores.


Vitamin B-12 is necessary for several bodily processes, including nerve function and the production of DNA and red blood cells.


Vitamin B12 can take two forms in the body: Active B12 (or ‘holotranscobalamin,’ as the medical professionals might call it!) and Inactive B12.


The active form of B12 can be used by the body, where the inactive form cannot. In other words, it’s the levels of active B12 we really need to be concerned with if we are worried about thyroid issues, fatigue or any other symptoms associated with a B12 deficiency.

Vitamin D (25-OH)

VITD

Vitamin D is a family of compounds that is essential for the proper growth and formation of teeth and bones.


Two forms of vitamin D can be measured in the blood, 25-hydroxy vitamin D and 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D. The 25-hydroxy vitamin D is the major form found in the blood and is the relatively inactive precursor to the active hormone, 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D. Because of its long half-life and higher concentration, 25-hydroxy vitamin D is commonly measured to assess and monitor vitamin D status in individuals.


This test measures the level of 25-hydroxy vitamin D in the blood.
