About Our Vitamin E Test

Note: Fasting is not required for this test.

Vitamin E is a fat-soluable vitamin and antioxidant that has a wide spectrum of health uses. This blood test is used to determine vitamin E levels. Vitamin E is considered an antioxidant.

This blood test is used to evaluate vitamin E deficiency in neuromuscular disease in individuals with chronic cholestasis; evaluate patients on long-term parenteral nutrition; patients with malignancy or malabsorption (e.g., patients with cystic fibrosis, cases of intestinal bypass surgery); to investigate brown-bowel syndrome or those with gastrointestinal disorders like celiac disease.


Deficient vitamin E levels can lead to:

  • Hemolytic anemia
  • A broad range of neurologic deficits including loss of proprioception and vibratory sensation
  • Impaired immune system response

Vitamin E deficiency can be more prevalent in people who:

  • Are premature infants and children with biliary atresia or cystic fibrosis
  • Are gastrointestinal surgery patients
  • Have fat malabsorption or fat metabolism disorders
  • Have digestive disorders like celiac disease or Crohn's disease

Major sources of vitamin E include:

  • Poultry
  • Margarine
  • Fish
  • Meat

  • Almonds
