Serum folate (folic acid) is a test that is commonly used to monitor folic acid status. Although it is frequently used, the results can be variable. When trying to uncover the cause of an anemia, an RBC folate assay should be performed instead as it more accurately reflects folate levels at the time the RBC was produced.


Test Folic Acid Levels can help with the following:
Circulation  Anemia, Megaloblastic


  Histadelia (Histamine High)
 Under certain conditions, such as anticipated or actual pregnancy, a simple lab test for serum folate levels is advisable. If the test results show low levels, supplementation should be considered to prevent potential birth defects.
