Description

Folic acid or Vitamin B9 is a water soluble vitamin which plays an important part in cell division. Folic acid deficiency results in macrocytic anemia (decreased oxygen carrying capacity of blood) and neural tube defects in babies. Since the serum folate levels are sensitive to recent diet, sometimes the folate stored in RBC is also checked to determine true folate levels.

Test Instructions
