    I am very satisfied with the company and regularly load my blood tests. The only pity is that you don't get a confirmation when the blood has arrived. That would be an added value...

    ActiveVitB12 ( HoloTC ) Vitamin B12 deficiency

    Active Vitamin B12 (holo TC) test

    Whether Vitamin B12 deficiency is the cause of symptoms such as fatigue and tingling is sometimes difficult to determine. However, when Vitamin B12 goes undetected it can lead to serious and permanent damage to the nervous system.

    This Holo-TC (Active-B12) test measures only the active part and is therefore a better test to assess B12 status than the common standard B12 test.

    Vitamin B12 is bound in the blood by two different transport proteins: Haptocorrin and Transcobalamin II. Only B12 bound to Transcobalamin II can be absorbed into the cells and is therefore useful to the body. The current test that measures total B12 (serum B12) does not distinguish between the two forms. The new test measures only the B12 bound to Transcobalamin II. This is also called Holo-TC, or Active B12.

    In healthy people the percentage of Active B12 is between 10% and 30% of the total B12. In individuals with a B12 absorption disorder, this ratio appears to be different, as research has shown that the Active-B12 value decreases faster than the total B12 value (serum B12). As a result, the Active B12 value can already be too low when the total B12 value is still normal. In this way, a deficiency can be detected sooner.

    The most common cause of a vitamin B12 deficiency is a disturbed absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. Also people who for a long time no animal products, such as vegans, can develop a vitamin B12 deficiency.

    The symptoms of a vitamin B12 deficiency often appear after years, because the body builds up a stock of this vitamin. Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause folic acid deficiency because these two vitamins work together. A vitamin B12 deficiency results in a form of anemia, with symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, angina (chest pain) and lack of appetite. In addition, vitamin B12 deficiency can affect the nervous system. Vitamin B12 is potentially important for memory and thinking functions. Elderly people, for example, can have problems with their memory as a result of a vitamin B12 deficiency.

    reference-values:

    result greater than 60 pmol/l: vitamin B12 deficiency is not likely result
    between 40 and 60 pmol/l: the recommendation is to do the MMA test in urine as a follow-up test.
    result smaller than 40: biologically active vitamin B12 deficiency

      Because less vitamin B12 is available in our diet, I was curious about my own values. By means of this test I got a simple and fast way to find out. Ordering through the webshop is easy, you quickly receive a message from Bloedwaardentest.nl and the results are neatly delivered to my mailbox. I can highly recommend it.
