Vitamin K Test

Importance of the Test

Why is Vitamin K essential? Because Vitamin K helps the liver produce proteins that assist in a blood clot. It also helps in strengthening the bones. A human adult typically has enough Vitamin K because the normal bacteria in the gut is enough to produce. We can find it in the fat of many different food items that we eat regularly. There is storage space in the liver for Vitamin K, so it’s okay if you don’t intake it every day. You will start getting bruises more easily. They will be visible more than usual if your body isn’t getting enough Vitamin K. You are finding it hard to stop bleeding after an injury, or doctors complained about the same after surgery. It makes a woman’s menstruation cycle heavier. Adults with Vitamin K deficiency face various health problems. Some examples include chronic kidney disease, diabetes, digestive disorders such as coeliac disease, a blocked bile duct, and cystic fibrosis. Some Anticoagulants, for example, warfarin, increase the risk of Vitamin K deficiency. Humans who consume antibodies, have a fat absorption problem and take anticoagulants need to contact a doctor before getting tested.
