Nutrition Blood Test
A laboratory blood test with simple at-home collection to make sure that your body is getting the important vitamins and minerals it needs for good health.
Most balanced diets should provide the body with all the vitamins and minerals it needs, however not everyone eats as well as they could all the time. This check helps you understand whether you need to include more vitamins and minerals in your diet, or whether you might benefit from taking a supplement.

CRP levels can be affected by infection, inflammation, and illness. If you are taking this test because you have recently developed symptoms or they are worsening you should discuss these with your doctor. We suggest taking your test when any short-term change in your symptoms have settled. Fasting is optional for this test. Eating fatty foods might affect the results of a small number of blood tests so we may advise a retest when you are fasted. If you are interested in your triglyceride or LDL levels, then we do recommend fasting. Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking prescribed biotin you should discuss this with your doctor. You should take this test before you take any vitamin or mineral supplements.
