Vitamin deficiencies affect your overall health, but will your blood test detect them?

CBC – Complete blood count (measures red blood cells, white blood cells, hemoglobin, and iron)

BMP – Basic metabolic panel (measures all basic organ systems and a few nutrients)

Neither of these tests will actually detect all of your nutritional deficiencies. What’s happening in the blood is not happening inside the cell.

Classical nutritional deficiencies – Severe deficiencies like scurvy, rickets, pellagra, or beriberi

Subclinical nutritional deficiencies – Could relate to repair, longevity, or protecting the immune system

Subclinical vitamin deficiency symptoms:

• Vitamin A – Problems with night vision
• Vitamin D – Low back pain
• Vitamin E – Weak muscles
• Vitamin K1 – Bruising
• Vitamin B1 – Anxiety
• Vitamin B2 – Cracked corners of the mouth or lips
• Biotin – Problems with your nails and hair loss
• Vitamin C – Bleeding gums and fatigue

How to test nutrient deficiencies:

Use a blood test that evaluates these nutrients off of your lymphocytes. A company called SpectraCell specializes in this.
