Order Name:
Vitamin B6 by HPLC

 
 
Clinical Information:
Vitamin B6 is a co-factor in many enzymatic reaction in body metabolisms, especially in formation of serotonin in the brain and of nicotinamide from tryptophan.
 
Reference Value:
5.7 – 55.1 microgram/L
 
Interpretation:
Vitamin B6 deficiency leads to a rise in the concentration of homocystein and increase the risk of arteriosclerosis.
