Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 most often comes from animal-based foods and therefore vegetarians should track their B12 levels. Vitamin B12 is needed especially for red blood cell formation.

Lack of vitamin B12 will lead to anaemia, but also neurological symptoms are possible.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a vital vitamin, and it is especially important to make sure you get enough vitamin D during winters. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is stored in our bodies.

Hertta test

The Hertta test is a heart attack and diabetes risk test that uses a blood sample to detect the risk of type 2 diabetes and a serious heart attack. The Hertta test is more accurate than commonly used cholesterol tests.

Hertta predicts the heart attack or diabetes risk for the next 1 to 10 years. The earlier the risk is detected, the better we can affect the situation. Heart attack or diabetes risk might not show up as high cholesterol or other commonly known risk factors, but Hertta test can still detect it.
