Fat-Soluble Vitamins Profile (A, E, D, K, CoQ10 & Beta-Carotene)
The Fat-Soluble Vitamins Profile is a great tool to gain an overall perspective of your health, nutrient processing, and dietary insufficiencies. Serum levels of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K plus beta-carotene and coenzyme Q10 are measured to evaluate total body status of these antioxidant nutrients.
Any condition that prevents the optimal absorption of fat from your food may lead to deficiency in the fat-soluble vitamins (e.g. biliary obstruction, celiac disease, pancreatic insufficiency, cystic fibrosis, Crohn’s disease, etc.) Deficient states lead to the depletion of body stores and are eventually indicated by a decrease in the amount of the vitamin detected in your blood.
