Description

The clinical test for thiamine is a serum thiamine test. This test measures the amount of thiamine in the patient's serum. The test is usually done as part of a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) or a vitamin B12 test.

To obtain the serum thiamine test, a sample of the patient's blood is taken and sent to a laboratory for analysis. The laboratory will then measure the amount of thiamine in the sample. The results of the test will indicate whether the patient has a deficiency or an excess of thiamine in their system.
