Vitamin Testing

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Going to the Doctor tomorrow to test for Vitamin Def. I'm at least going to ask for it. Feeling some tingling in the tongue and feet....eye twitching and now headaches. WHAT test should I specifically ask for besides b12?? I want to tell the doctor what he will be testing me for!

Thanks!!

I'm not an expert here, but in light of the fact that you have no answer yet, I will give it a shot.

Common Celiac deficiencies are

Vitamin D

B 12

Zinc

Magnesium

A

E

Calcium

Other B vitamins

You could ask your Dr. what vitamins it would be important to be tested for if you are Celiac. Even if they have to google it, at least it would give you a starting place.

I'm sure mine is not a complete list.

I would add ferritin and folate (comes under other B vitamins) to that list, and a thyroid test to boot.. Typical celiac problems.

Just got my results...

My B Vitamins, incuding Ferritin and Folate were good.

Iron Levels were good...

Thyroid great.

B12 was high 1933 (should be under 946), but I'm supplementing with sublingual 2500 daily

Vit D...11.5 Low (30-100).

The doctor didnt check me for E or A.
