It is a water-soluble vitamin and found in many foods, such as fish, pork, chicken, milk, cheese, seeds, nuts, bananas, wheat, legumes, and vegetables, etc. It is also available as dietary supplements.

Vitamin B6 deficiency mainly occurs in individuals who do not include Vitamin B6 rich foods in their diet. Certain disease conditions such as kidney or heart failure, stroke, cirrhosis, peripheral neuropathy (numbness and pain in the hands and feet) depression, seizures, anemia may also show decreased Vitamin B6 blood levels.

If the test result falls in the normal reference range, then you have adequate levels of Vitamin B6 and hence no medical intervention is necessary.

If the test result falls below the normal reference range, it may show moderate-to-severe Vitamin B6 deficiencies. Deficiency of Vitamin B6 in the body may cause a red, itchy rash called seborrheic dermatitis. Poor nutrition intake or lack of nutrients (malnutrition), or lack of proper absorption of Vitamin B6 through a small intestine because of Chron’s disease (a disease condition of intestine) may also show low Vitamin B6 blood levels.

In individuals with disease conditions such as kidney or heart failure, stroke, cirrhosis, peripheral neuropathy (numbness and pain in the hands and feet), depression, seizures, anemia, asthma may also show decreased Vitamin B6 blood levels.

Individuals with poor appetite and who consume alcohol regularly also may show decreased Vitamin B6 blood levels. Low Vitamin B6 blood levels may also be seen in individuals who receive dialysis or taking water pills or certain medications such as cycloserine, isoniazid, hydralazine, pyrazinamide, D-penicillamine etc. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may have decreased Vitamin B6 blood levels.

If the test result falls above the normal reference range, it may show Vitamin B6 toxicity. This is not very common and may occur because of the intake of high doses of Vitamin B6 supplements. Individuals with hypophosphatasia, a rare genetic disorder of abnormal development of bones and teeth, may also show high Vitamin B6 levels in the blood. Increased Vitamin B6 levels in the blood may cause neurological disorders and numbness.

If you have higher or lower than normal levels of Vitamin B6 levels in the blood, consult your doctor for further instructions. Based on the test results, your doctor may advise you on medical treatments, lifestyle modifications, or further diagnostic tests.
