Carotene Test (Beta Carotene)

$49

The Carotene Test, or beta carotene test, is designed to measure levels of carotene in the blood. Carotene is a fat soluble nutrient and low levels can be an indicative of a vitamin A deficiency. Among other side effects, vitamin A deficiencies can affect sight and tear production. Those with vitamin A deficiencies are advised to consume more fruits and vegetables so as not to lead to a more serious condition. With our detailed Carotene Test, such deficiencies can be made known and treated by your physician.
