Target & Goal
Vitamin B12 is a powerhouse. It helps make DNA, nerve and blood cells, and is crucial for a healthy brain and immune system. It is vital for the formation of red blood cells, as well as for the proper functioning and health of nerve tissue: your metabolism wouldn't run smoothly without it. The signs of Vitamin B12 deficiency include exhaustion, rapid heartbeat, brain fog, and other symptoms.
If left untreated, Vitamin B12 deficiency, also known as B12 deficiency, can lead to anemia, as well as nerve and brain damage which may eventually become irreversible.
Vitamin B12 also helps our bodies absorb folic acid, which facilitates the release of energy.
Below mentioned are the signs and symptoms of Vitamin B-12 deficiency. If you identify any of the below signs and symptoms, you need to immediately check for your B12 levels.
- Fatigue (tiredness)
- Panting (shortness of breath)
- Palpitations (disagreeable sensations of irregular or heavy beating of the heart)
- A sore mouth or tongue
- Weight loss
- Pale or yellowish skin
- Diarrhea (sporadic)
- Menstrual problems
- Higher susceptibility to infections.
The Genes tests reveal:
If the deficiency continues untreated the patient may have the following neurological signs and symptoms:
- Tingling or numbness of the fingers
- Tingling or numbness of the toes
- General muscle weakness
- Difficulty walking properly (staggering)
- Tender calves
The Genes tests reveal:
Today, Vitamin D is seen as a vital part of good health and it’s important not just for the health of your bones. Recent research is now showing that Vitamin D may be important in preventing and treating a number of serious long-term health problems.
Vitamin D is one of many nutrients our bodies need to stay healthy. Among the vitamin's main functions, it helps the body:
- Absorb calcium. Vitamin D, along with calcium, helps build bones and keep bones strong and healthy.
- Block the release of parathyroid hormone. This hormone reabsorbs bone tissue, which makes bones thin and brittle.
Genetic test results
The test results will contain the observed, active genes in the test. The test report will be formatted and will be mailed electronically to the subject as an attached file. Please note, this test does not diagnose any sickness, but indicates the connections between the subject and his or her population group based on the tested gene.
How the test is performed
The test is performed using a sampling toolkit of saliva or mucosa. The test is simple, painless, and subject-friendly; suitable for any age. Children under the age of 18 will need a parent’s signature in a parental agreement form.
5 Easy Steps Of Sample Collection
- Large amount of saliva or mucosa needs to be sampled in order to perform the test.
- Spitting in the toolkit is not permitted.
- After opening the test stick, it should not be put on any surface other than the mouth to avoid contamination.
- After the sample collection, it should be returned to the toolkit immediately and the toolkit needs to be closed.
- The toolkit includes an agreement form that needs to be completed, signed and attached to the test delivery package.
Easy delivery and schedule
On receiving the test order confirmation, the toolkit will be sent to the specified address of the subject. The toolkit includes a prepaid return delivery package. The only thing required from the subject is to provide the sample in the test toolkit and to complete and sign the agreement form in the package and mail it back. Delivery services will be provided with additional fees. The test results will be mailed electronically to the subject after 2-3 weeks, thus promising complete privacy and confidentiality.
