Folic Acid Blood Test

You might be aware that folate is required for normal growth and production of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets! It is also necessary for the normal development of the fetus. Hence, you must have the required amount of folic acid in the blood. The prescribed folate intake in adults is 400 mcg daily. Females planning for pregnancy are recommended to take 400 to 1000 mcg of folic acid daily. 

The Folic acid test determines the amount of folate in the body. The test reflects an individual diet intake of folic acid and folate. The foods rich in folate are dark green leafy vegetables, citrus foods, beans, and whole grains, among others. Also, if the folate requirement is not fulfilled from the inside, then it must be taken from the outside in the form of vitamin pills. 

The folate levels can be checked by measuring the number of RBCs, this test is better than the plasma test for analyzing stored folate in the body. The levels can be measured when the RBCs were produced as much as four months earlier. The quantities are not influenced by the intake of folic acid and folate in the diet and the accurate way to detect the folate levels.
