Description

Vitamin A, Serum tests measure the amount of Vitamin A in a person’s blood. Vitamin A is an essential nutrient that is important for numerous functions in the body. It is involved with bone growth, production of immunoglobulins, good vision, and healthy skin and mucous membranes. This test is important when assessing an individual’s health, as Vitamin A deficiency can lead to night blindness, dry eyes, dry skin, and can impair the immune system, making it harder for the body to fight off infections. Moreover, it is also used to determine for general nutritional status, evaluate for toxicity from excessive Vitamin A consumption, help diagnose certain medical conditions, and to monitor the effectiveness of Vitamin A treatments.
