What is a Vitamin B1 test?
Vitamin B-1 is also called thiamin and Vitamin B-2 is also called riboflavin. These vitamins help convert food into energy. Vitamin B-1 has neurological benefits, and vitamin B-2 helps maintain proper eyesight.
Who should get this test?
Deficiencies in vitamins B-1 and B-2 generally don’t pose a problem in the United States. This is due to the fact that many foods, such as milk and whole-grain cereals, are fortified with the vitamins. It can become an issue with people who abuse alcohol, however, presenting symptoms such as confusion and cracks along the sides of the mouth.
