What is a Vitamin A Level test?

Vitamin A Level blood test is used to help diagnose vitamin A deficiency in people with symptoms, such as night blindness, or in people with diseases that impair intestinal absorption of nutrients and who are at risk of vitamin A deficiency.

  • Skin thickening and lesions
  • Grayish spots on eye lining (Bitot spots)
