Supplements Vitamins and Blood Tests

Various blood tests are performed for checking the level of minerals and vitamins in the body.

The volume of blood in human body is 6 to 7% of the body weight. That is about 4 to 5 liters for a person of 70 kg. So these blood tests are vastly altered by the amount of water that a person drinks before the blood test.

But there is no alert given to the patients who is undergoing a blood test to monitor the water that the person may drink.

Now let us say that a blood reveals that serum calcium of a person is lower than recommended range.

Now the next question is – whether by supplements or by changing the diet to include more of deficient mineral, the serum mineral can be increased. What is relationship of increase in mineral intake and increase in┬áserum mineral.

So far as I have understood the relationship between mineral intake and serum mineral, there is no relationship. Even after taking the calcium supplements for years there has been no increase in serum calcium across the population of this earth.
