Vitamin K1 Blood Test

Item # LC121200

Vitamin K plays an important role in blood clotting and regulating bone calcium levels. Maintaining adequate levels of vitamin K can improve bone health while reducing the risk of fractures. The vitamin K1 blood test measures levels of one form of vitamin K known as phylloquinone.

There are two basic forms of vitamin K:

  • Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) - comes from the diet, especially green leafy vegetables
  • Vitamin K2 (menaquinone) - produced by bacteria in the intestine and includes different forms such as MK-7 and MK-4

Vitamin K is a group of fat-soluble vitamins essential for the functioning of several proteins involved in blood clotting. Insufficient vitamin K can lead to excessive bleeding and easy bruising. Without sufficient amounts of vitamin K, calcium can build up on the arterial wall resulting in vascular and cardiovascular problems.

Vitamin K is also involved in maintaining healthy bones by assisting in the transportation of calcium from the blood to the bone. Low blood levels of vitamin K have been associated with low bone density. Maintaining adequate levels of vitamin K can improve bone health while reducing the risk of fractures.

Instructions

Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.

Note

This blood test measures only vitamin K1.
