A healthy result should fall into the range 0.44 - 1.64 mg/L.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), also known as ubiquinone, is a cofactor, electron carrier, and antioxidant. It is a critical component of the electron transport chain in mitochondria. Inadequate amounts of CoQ10 lead to a failure of mitochondria to produce cellular energy. Coenzyme Q10 is found in all membranes and is carried by various cholesterol components in the bloodstream including low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Total coenzyme Q10 is measured in hemolyzed blood, which means the blood cells are broken apart prior to analysis. The coenzyme Q10 test is primarily used to diagnose of coenzyme Q10 deficiency in mitochondrial disorders. It may also be used to monitor treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Normal Ranges for Coenzyme Q10:

<18 years: 320-1,558 mcg/L

Adults: 433-1,532 mcg/L
