    This test should be taken to detect vitamin A deficiency or toxicity.

Your doctor would recommend this test for you if you show signs of Vitamin A deficiency. They include:

  1. You have dry skin
  2. You have dry eyes
  3. Night Blindness
  4. Infertility and trouble in getting pregnant
  5. Infection in the chest and throat
  6. Wound takes more time to heal

Vitamin A is plays a vital role in maintaining healthy vision, skin growth and integrity, bone formation, immune function, and embryonic development. It is required to produce several structural and functional units in the eyes that regulate different aspects of vision and optical dynamics from day and night vision to recognition of colours. Deficiencies in vitamin A can hamper night vision causing night blindness, lead to eye damage, and in severe cases, lead to complete blindness. Acute or chronic excesses of vitamin A are toxic, cause a variety of symptoms, and sometimes cause birth defects.

Interpretations

A normal vitamin A blood level indicates that a person currently has sufficient vitamin A to meet the required needs of the organs where it plays a critical role, but does not indicate what proportion is stored in reserve. The body will maintain vitamin A in the blood at a relatively steady level till the time stores are depleted. 

A low vitamin A blood test result indicates all reserves are depleted and therefore the person is deficient. A high vitamin A blood implies that there is more than the required quantity of vitamin A circulating in the blood and may be deposited in other tissues, leading to toxicity.
