Vitamin B6

  1. Vitamin B6


    As part of my blood work for HRT, the doc ordered my B6 levels checked. Mine was >100, I believe top of normal was in the 50's/

    I take a multivitamin with B6, but otherwise, no supplementation.

    Any ideas why my B6 is too high, and if it means anything bad?

    What is its importance in HRT circles?

    That is a hard question.
    If you asked what it does when low, there will be lots of answers.

    In the mean time play safe.

    Repeat the test if still high get different multivitamins.

    Clinical Significance:
    To determine vitamin B6 deficiency or overdosage, for
    monitoring treatment, and to evaluate wellness and health.

    Reference Ranges:
    Vitamin B6, Plasma ng/mL
    2-17 Years: 3.0-35.0 ng/mL
    Adults: 2.1-21.7 ng/mL

    Conversion Factor: Nanograms/mL x 4.046 = nanomoles/L

    ============================== ================

    35.0 ng/mL =35.0*4.046=142 nanomoles/L
    21.7 ng/mL =21.7*4.046=88 nanomoles/L

    How old are you???

    It's weird to me that a water soluble vitamin could be at a high level when you should theoretically pee out the excess.
