Patient should fast for 12-14 hours before collection of the specimen. Specimens should be collected in the morning since iron values decrease by 30% during the course of the day and there can be significant interference from lipemia. Fasting is defined as no consumption of food or beverage other than water for at least 12 hours before testing. In patients receiving therapy with high biotin doses (ie, > 5 mg/day), no sample should be taken until at least eight hours after the last biotin administration; must draw before Schilling test, transfusions or B12 therapy is started. Patient should not have vitamins containing folic acid during the previous three to five days; if so, consult physician before discontinuing.
Estimated turnaround for results is 7-8 business days.
