The Serum Folate blood test analyses the levels of Folate within the blood. Folate is essential for healthy cell division, tissue and cellular repair and DNA synthesis. This test is useful if you want to ensure that your diet is providing you with a sufficient amount of Folate, or if you are pregnant this is because pregnant women require an increased levels of Folate.

Folate can be found in foods such as whole grains, beans and liver. Folate deficiency can result in anemia with symptoms of a sore tongue, diarrhoea, headaches and fatigue.
