 IntroLab in Belgrade offers a methylmalonic acid test, which is essential for monitoring the levels of this substance in the body. Methylmalonic acid plays a key role in the metabolism of certain proteins, and elevated levels can indicate potential health issues, such as vitamin B12 deficiency.

What is the connection between vitamin B12 and methylmalonic acid?

Methylmalonic acid is a biomarker used to detect vitamin B12 deficiency. Under normal conditions, vitamin B12 is necessary for the proper metabolism of methylmalonic acid. However, when there is a vitamin B12 deficiency, the enzyme responsible for converting methylmalonic acid into another substance is not adequately activated. This results in increased levels of methylmalonic acid in the body.

When to consider a methylmalonic acid (vitamin B12 deficiency) test

The methylmalonic acid test can be useful in the following situations. First, when there is a suspicion of vitamin B12 deficiency, elevated levels of methylmalonic acid in the blood can indicate this deficiency. Second, the methylmalonic acid test can be used to monitor the effectiveness of vitamin B12 therapy in patients with a deficiency, to determine whether the therapy is working and normalizing the levels of this acid. Of course, it is important that this blood test is performed with the expert evaluation of a doctor, considering the specific symptoms and needs of the patient.
