Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Blood, LC/MS/MS
Fasting Required: Overnight fasting is required (10-12 hours)

Specimen: Blood

Results: 5-7 Business Days

Description: Involved in numerous body functions, including: nervous system and muscle functioning; flow of electrolytes in and out of nerve and muscle cells (through ion channels); multiple enzyme processes (via the coenzyme thiamin pyrophosphate); carbohydrate metabolism; and production of hydrochloric acid (which is necessary for proper digestion). Because there is very little thiamin stored in the body, depletion can occur as quickly as within 14 days.

Methodology: Liquid Chromatography/Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS)

Alternative Name(s): B1, Thiamine
