What is a Vitamin B6 test?

Vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) helps the body turn food into energy. It can also help the body fight infections. Pregnant and breast-feeding women need it to help their babies’ brains develop normally.

Who should get this test?

Insufficient amounts of B-6 can result in anemia as well as skin disorders, such as a rash or cracks around the mouth. A lack of B-6 also can cause:

  • depression
  • confusion
  • nausea
  • anemia
  • susceptibility to infections
  • skin rashes (dermatitis)

When will I receive my results?

Once completed, you will receive your results within 3-5 business days in your LabFinder portal.

How do I prepare? Do I need to fast?

No preparation or fasting required. Just bring your LabFinder Order and Insurance Card to your appointment.
