FOLATE LEVEL Test
What is the FOLATE LEVEL Test?
A folate test determines how much folate is present in the blood. Folate is a B vitamin that comes in a variety of forms. Folate is required for proper growth and the production of red blood cells (RBC), white blood cells (WBC), and platelets. Folate is also necessary for a baby's appropriate development (fetus).
Folate can be tested in the blood's liquid part (plasma). This indicates a person's current dietary consumption of folate and folic acid. Liver, citrus fruits, dark green, leafy vegetables (spinach), whole grains, and beans are all high in folate. Folic acid is a synthetic version of folate. Vitamin tablets and fortified foods, such as fortified breakfast cereals, include it.
A folate test can be used to determine:
Find out what's causing your anemia. Because a shortage of either vitamin can cause anemia, a folate test is sometimes done simultaneously as a vitamin B12 test.
Check for malnutrition or issues with folate absorption (malabsorption).
Check to see if your folate or vitamin B12 deficiency medication is working.
Examine a woman's folate levels to see if she has enough to prevent certain birth abnormalities and allow her baby to grow normally.
You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein.
How does one prepare for the test?
8–10 hours before the folate plasma test, only drink water.
