    This question is for me and husband. I suspect that our B-12 levels, and possibly our zinc levels are low. That being said, we take a variety of supplements every day in addition to daily multivitamins. Our diets are good, but not great.

    Can we have someone draw blood and look at our vitamin levels? If they can, do they look at them all automatically in a panel, or do we have to ask for specific tests?

    I believe that your regular primary care physician can order tests to check vitamin levels.

    Thanks. I will have to give that a try.

    A CBC will not show vitamin levels. It will check thyroid, though.
    Be very specific when you ask.
