The Vitamin B1 (thiamine) whole blood test measures the levels of thiamine in the blood. Thiamine, also known as vitamin B1, is a nutrient that is important for the proper functioning of the nervous system and the metabolism of carbohydrates. It is found in certain foods, such as whole grains, nuts, and legumes, and is also available as a dietary supplement.
The results of a Vitamin B1 whole blood test can help a healthcare provider diagnose and monitor conditions related to thiamine levels, such as thiamine deficiency or excess, liver problems, and malnutrition. The test can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of thiamine supplementation.
