    The Comprehensive Vitamin C Test determines the amount of Vitamin C present in your blood. 

    Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that helps in protein metabolism and boosts the immune system and other vital functions. A lack of this vitamin can cause health complications. So, it’s necessary to conduct a vitamin C test to check the levels of this nutrient in the body.

    Vitamin C Test - Overview

    Vitamin C is also called Ascorbic Acid and is primarily found in citrus fruits like lemon and orange. It is essential for functions like wound healing, iron absorption, and maintenance of bones. 

    Vitamin C deficiency affects metabolism and results in a weak immune system with higher susceptibility to infections. It can also lead to conditions like scurvy, perifollicular haemorrhage, ecchymosis, and delayed wound healing.

    This test is conducted to evaluate the levels of vitamin C in the body. Symptoms of vitamin C deficiency include extreme fatigue, bleeding gums, weight loss, dry mouth, and weight loss.   

    The only pre-requisite for this vitamin C valuation is fasting for 12 to 14 hours. You also need to inform the doctor about any pre-existing medical conditions, allergies and medication you are taking. 

    Why Should You Get Tested?

    The vitamin C test is essential to determine the exact level of this nutrient in your body. It allows doctors to understand whether you are suffering from a deficiency. 

    A vitamin C deficiency can hinder the growth of your body tissues and affect bone health. It can also negatively affect the development of tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. 

    So, a proper testing procedure will check if the levels of vitamin C are within the range of 0.4 and 1.7 mg/dL. Based on the vitamin C test results, the doctors will provide further instructions for your well-being.
