Who should take the test?
The Vitamin B12 test is highly recommended for individuals who may experience a range of symptoms associated with Vitamin B12 deficiency, including hair loss, muscle weakness, fatigue, poor memory, headaches, depression, a burning sensation in the tongue or tingling in the arms and hands, anemia, and allergies.
Given that up to 6% of the population under the age of 60 and up to 20% over the age of 60 in the United States may not meet the recommended Vitamin B12 intake, our test provides a valuable opportunity for those who suspect deficiency or wish to monitor their B12 levels to better understand their health and well-being.
How does it work?
Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a blood sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.
Moreover, additional information can be found on our website, particularly within various test categories, “health conditions,” and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How is my privacy protected?
Samples for our tests are collected in the privacy of your own home. Both we and our partner laboratories (which may be contracted by us to conduct some or all analyses of your test) take customer privacy very seriously.
You will be the sole person with access to this information, and we guarantee that we will not disclose your information to any unauthorized third parties. Additionally, all samples will be disposed of after analysis. Both our Verisana portal for registering kits and receiving results as well as our CLIA-certified partner laboratories are fully HIPAA-compliant.
