|Who to Test?|
The uMMA test is a functional assay. uMMA reflects cobalamin (Vitamin B12)
activity at the tissue/cellular level since MMA levels are directly related
to a B12-dependent metabolic pathway
Vitamin B12 deficiency impedes this pathway and causes MMA levels to increase. Thus, as water builds up behind a dam, high uMMA levels indicate a vitamin B12 deficiency.
