Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is a vitamin that's essential for many functions in your body, including red blood cell production and nerve function. Vitamin B12 can be found in food, supplements, and fortified foods. If you don't get enough vitamin B12, you may develop anaemia or nerve damage. A normal vitamin B12 level is 200 to 900 ng/mL. If you have a low vitamin B12 level, your doctor may recommend that you take a supplement or eat foods that are fortified with vitamin B12.

Folate and Vitamin D will be calculated as Vit B12.

Folate B12

Folate, folic acid or a vitamin B test checks for the serum levels of folate in the blood. Folate is essential in the healthy creation and regulation of your body's red blood cells. A typical folate rate is considered 2.7 to 17 nanograms per millilitre (ng/mL). A result lower than 2.7 ng/ml can mean you have a deficiency.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a vitamin that's essential for many functions in your body, including bone and muscle health. Vitamin D can be found in food, supplements, and fortified foods. If you don't get enough vitamin D, you may develop osteoporosis or muscle weakness. An average vitamin D level is 20 to 50 ng/mL. If you have a low vitamin D level, we may recommend that you take a vitamin D supplement or eat foods fortified with vitamin D.

Vitamin deficiencies can lead to a number of health problems. If you don't get enough of certain vitamins, you may experience symptoms like fatigue, weakness, and dizziness. Vitamin deficiencies can also cause more serious problems like anemia and osteoporosis.
