A micronutrient test panel is a laboratory test that measures the levels of various micronutrients in the body. Micronutrients are nutrients that the body needs in small amounts, such as vitamins and minerals, to function properly. A micronutrient test panel may include tests for a wide range of micronutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants. The panel may be used to evaluate the overall nutritional status of an individual and to help diagnose and monitor conditions that can affect micronutrient levels, such as malnutrition or deficiencies. The test is typically done by drawing a small amount of blood from a vein in the arm and sending it to a laboratory for analysis.
