Functional Medicine Testing - B Vitamins
Functional medicine tends to do more testing which allows us to pinpoint specific problem areas and guide treatment recommendations.
Normal lab results indicate ranges with values based on 95% of the population. These ranges are not necessarily what is optimal for you. Our Wellness Overview Panel is a comprehensive look at markers within these ranges for many nutrients and substances essential to your health.
Vitamin levels are often at less-than-ideal amounts. Let’s look at vitamin B for example.
Our Wellness Overview Panel will check B12, folate, and homocysteine, as well as other markers.
If you are low in B12, a methylated form of B12 such as Methyl Protect® which is the active form of the vitamin, might be recommended. Through testing for homocysteine and the MTHFR gene, we can determine if you have methylation issues.
All the B vitamins have inter-related functions and therefore we may suggest taking a Methyl B Complex - B Activ®.
