(Test Code 4042)
Vitamin imbalances could be causing or contributing to a number of health issues, simply including the way the body functions on a day to day basis. The Fat-Soluble vitamin profile is a unique tool that measures a combination of different essential vitamins such as vitamin A, K, D, E Beta-carotene and Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). The advantage of testing all these vitamins in one panel is truly important because proper functionality is dependent on adequate supply of each nutrient the body has.
The Fat-Soluble Vitamins Profile is useful in assessing the overall picture of a patient’s health, nutrient processing, and dietary insufficiencies. Serum levels of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K plus beta-carotene and coenzyme Q10 are measured to evaluate total body status of these antioxidant nutrients that are present in the body however, may not be properly activated, appropriately localised or have sufficient co-factors to function at a normal level of activity.
