What is Serum Folate

Serum folate is a blood test that measures the level of folate, a B vitamin, in the blood. Folate is important for many bodily functions, including the production of red blood cells and DNA synthesis. The test is typically performed by drawing a blood sample from a vein in the arm, and the results can help diagnose folate deficiencies or other conditions related to folate levels. Treatment for folate deficiencies may include dietary changes or supplements.
