Vitamin B12 Test

What is a Vitamin B12 Test?

Vitamin B12 is essential for our good health. Our body requires a certain amount of this vitamin in order to produce sufficient red blood cells and to keep our nervous system healthy and working.

Vitamin B12 is a part of the Vitamin B complex. It is also known as “Cobalamin”. Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin. It plays a major role in the normal function of RBCs, synthesis of DNA and other genetic material in the cells, and also helps in repairing the tissues of the body. 

Vitamin B12 is not produced by our body and that’s why it needs to be added to our diet. Vitamin B12-rich foods include milk, fish, red meat, eggs, yoghurt, grain products, cereals and fortified cereals. It can also be added to the diet as a multivitamin supplement. 

A low level of Vitamin B12 is rare in people who eat a balanced and healthy diet. However, if the level of Vitamin B12 drops then a person would suffer from its deficiency and even anemia. This can lead to low blood and platelet count. 

The Vitamin B12 test in Pakistan is a special routine test. It is done for this very reason in order to check whether the level of vitamin B12 is healthy, low, high, or in between.

When is a Vitamin B12 Test Performed?

A medical practitioner would recommend a Vitamin B12 test if you have the following symptoms:

  • Dementia 
  • Tingling in the hands and feet
  • Racing heart
  • Weakness
  • Confusion
  • Problems with the balance
  • Loss of appetite

If you suffer from pernicious anemia, your doctor would again recommend this test. In this condition, the RBCs are at a low level. This condition occurs when enough Vitamin B12 is not absorbed by our intestine. Common symptoms of this disease include:

  • Constipation or diarrhoea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Exhaustion
  • Inflamed red tongue
  • Bleeding gums
  • Pale skin

How Do You Read Vitamin B12 Results?

The normal level of Vitamin B12 in our blood ranges from 190-950 (pg/mL).

The results of the Vitamin B12 are further interpreted as

  • High - If the level of Vitamin B12 found is above 900 (pg/mL), it is called an abnormal or high level of vitamin B12. This may be due to diabetes, kidney or liver problems, or may be due to leukaemia.
  • Low - If your normal range of Vitamin B12 is less than 200 pg/mL, it is called vitamin B12 deficiency or overactive thyroid or B12 deficiency. More diagnostic tests are required after this.

 The borderline range is 200-300 (pg/mL) and your medical doctor may also recommend more tests after this result.
