The Vitamin B1 test is used to gauge the levels of Vitamin B1 or Thiamine in your body.
Vitamin B1 facilitates the proper functioning of all our body tissues. The human body requires this vitamin to make Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). ATP further breaks down food molecules to release chemical energy and power body processes. Thiamine also protects nerves, prevents heart diseases, prevents Alzheimer's disease, promotes digestion, etc.
Hence, a lack of vitamin B1 can cause significant harm to your body and overall well being. In fact, here are certain symptoms that you might show in case you have a thiamine deficiency:
