Vitamin B7, also referred to as Biotin, is necessary for metabolism and hormone production.

Also known as Biotin, vitamin B7 is necessary for cell growth, metabolism of fats and amino acids, and hormone production.

What is a Vitamin B7 Blood Test?

The Vitamin B7 Blood Test works by collecting a blood sample and measuring the levels of vitamin B7 within that sample. Your body does not produce B vitamins on its own. Biotin, and other B vitamins, are ingested through foods such as meat, fish, eggs, seeds, nuts, and certain vegetables (such as sweet potatoes, spinach, and broccoli), or through supplements. 

Why would my doctor order a Vitamin B7 Blood Test?

Your provider may order this test to screen for a vitamin B7 deficiency, malnutrition, or possible malabsorption disorders such as Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, or cystic fibrosis. 

When should I order a Vitamin B7 Blood Test?

Your provider may wish to order a Vitamin B7 Blood Test if you’ve exhibited symptoms of B7 deficiency, including:  

  • hair loss
  • muscle pain
  • fatigue
  • a red rash around the eyes, nose, mouth, and genital area 

A Vitamin B7 test may also be ordered to monitor pregnant women or people with malabsorption disorders. You cannot take a Vitamin B7 Blood Test at home — this test can only be administered by a medical professional at a licensed testing facility. 

How do I read the results of the test?

Once you receive the results of your test, you will need to consult with your provider. Only a medical professional can advise you on the results of your Vitamin B7 levels and help you develop a treatment plan if necessary. 

Do my results change with age?

People with health conditions that impact how the body absorbs nutrients or who are on certain medications can be at risk of developing a vitamin B7 deficiency at any age. It is rare for a healthy person eating a balanced diet to suffer from vitamin B7 deficiency.

What should I expect at my appointment?

There are no specific requirements to prepare for a Vitamin B7 Blood Test, but your provider may advise you to discontinue taking Biotin supplements for a few days before testing. Your provider will draw a blood sample from a vein in your arm. Vitamin B7 Blood Test results typically take 6-12 business days to process.
