This test is used to determine the level of the vitamin folate in the body. The normal levels of folate are indicative of healthy blood with sufficient RBCs. Low level of folate result in anemic situations as well as alter the neurological health of an individual. This test is carried out in combination with vitamin B12 test as both perform similar role in homeostasis and synthesis of RBCs. The analysis of folate levels is recommended in symptoms such as pale skin, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, numbness in feet and hands and dizziness.
