Vitamin B9 Test

Folate Test

Testing the folate level, which is also known as folic acid and vitamin B9, is primarily used in the diagnosis of anaemia. Symptoms like weakness, tiredness, pale skin, tingling or itching sensations, eye twitching, memory loss, are related to folate deficiency.

What Is Folic Acid?

Folic Acid and Folate are a form of Vitamin B – 9. Both Folate and Folic acid are water-soluble and the only difference is that Folate is found naturally in our food while folic acid is man-made. The natural sources of Folate are – green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, peas, dairy products, poultry, meat, seafood, grains, etc. Folic acid is widely available as supplements

What is Folic Acid Deficiency?

Folic acid deficiency refers to two things either extra demand of folic acid like in the case of pregnant women or the loss of folic acid due to Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, alcoholism, use of diuretics, etc.

When Do You Need A Folic Acid Test?

The Folic acid blood test is mainly given to individuals who show symptoms of folic acid or Vitamin – B deficiency. The folic acid blood test is also given to monitoring the progress of varied disease treatment or the lack of it. The folic acid test is also extremely important for pregnant women for preventing birth defects and for the normal development of the foetus.

Folic Acid Test Interpretation

The reading of the folic acid blood test is done in terms of high and low. Higher than normal folic acid range does not cause any such problems as it is water soluble and is passed out through the urine, but it does signify the deficiency of Vitamin B deficiency. Vitamin B deficiency is needed by the body for the proper use of folic acid, and low vitamin B levels means that the folic acid is not being properly used. Lower than normal folic acid levels could be indicative of the following condition;

  • Anemia
  • Folic acid deficiency
  • Poor absorption of vitamins and minerals.

Note:

  • Overnight fasting is recommended
  • Doctor’s prescription may be needed
  • The normal reference range and test result may vary depending on gender, age, health history, etc.
