2 Lab Testing Worksheets / Page 2 Definitions s refer to the laboratory values that are generally associated with absence of disease. Values higher or lower indicate deviation from the standard norm and can indicate disease. s are those that are associated with absence of disease and lower risk for illness. s* are those that reflect low to zero risk for disease and denote optimal wellness and healthy aging. *s that are highlighted denote Optimal SI Units and are ONLY TO BE USED OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES. = Optimal SI Units. Only Use Outside of the U.S. Disclaimer Standard laboratory reference values are based on population statistics for people who are generally healthy and with an absence of quantifiable disease. However, true health is not just the absence of disease but a state of optimal wellness. The information in this course and reference sheet is for educational purposes only. It is meant to as a guide towards health and does not replace the evaluation by and advice of a qualified licensed healthcare professional. For detailed interpretation of your blood tests, consult with your physician.

An elevated concentration of methylmalonic acid in plasma/serum is an indicator of cobalamin deficiency, whereas an increased concentration of total homocysteine in plasma occurs with deficiency of both cobalamin and folate. The biomarkers methylmalonic acid and homocysteine are therefore complementary. Ueland PM, Schneede J. Measurement of methylmalonic acid, homocysteine and methionine in cobalamin and folate deficiencies and homocysteinuria. Tidsskr Nor Laegeforen Mar 13;128(6): There is no gold standard for establishing optimal s for Methylmalonic Acid (MMA). However, since levels above the reference establishes vitamin B12 deficiency, it s reasonable to assume that levels between 75 and 300 are more optimal.
