Feeling weak and tired? Low levels of vitamin B12 cause fatigue. Immuniti's at home B12 health check test will give you clear answers with accurate results. Vitamin B12 is important for nerve health and for the formation of red blood cells.
Who is the test for?
Vegans and vegetarians have a higher risk of a deficiency as B12 is mostly found in meat and fish. It is important to ensure that you are getting enough Vitamin B12, as well as the other essential vitamins and minerals in your daily diet.
Vitamin B12 is also an essential nutrient in pregnancy, so if you are planning for a baby then it is important to ensure that your B12 levels are adequate.
Our bodies can store vitamin B12 to last us several years but some groups of the population are at a higher risk of deficiency, as they may have issues absorbing it from their diet. If you have vitamin B12 deficiency for a prolonged period then you can develop anaemia, therefore it is important to be diagnosed early to prevent this.
How does the test help?
Our at-home Vitamin B12 test will provide a clear picture of your B12 levels and whether you may require treatment for a deficiency. Our doctors will review your results and where required, provide a bespoke recommendation of treatment.
