Optimal Result: 0.0001 - 0.0017 mEq/g creat.

Dietary vanadium is found in black pepper, mushrooms, dill seed, parsley, soy, corn, olive oil, radishes and other root vegetables, lettuces, nuts and strawberries. A balanced diet may provide 10 to 30 mcg of Vanadium per day. This trace element is important in cellular metabolism, bone and tooth formation, reproduction and growth. Also, Vanadium appears to be involved in glucose metabolism.

What does it mean if your Vanadium result is too low?

Excessively low urinary Vanadium excretion may reflect a deficiency state due to poor dietary intake and/or poor absorption (less than 5% of dietary Vanadiumis absorbed).

Dietary vanadium is found in black pepper, mushrooms, dill seed, parsley, soy, corn, olive oil, radishes and other root vegetables, lettuces, nuts and strawberries. A balanced diet may provide 10 to 30 mcg of Vanadium per day. This trace element is important in cellular metabolism, bone and tooth formation, reproduction and growth. Also, Vanadium appears to be involved in glucose metabolism.

There are no known symptoms of Vanadium deficiency. Although trace amounts of Vanadium may have essential metabolic functions, over-zealous supplementation of Vanadium is not warranted. There is no RDA for Vanadium but, if supplementation is warranted, a common daily dose of tetravalent vanadyl sulfate is 20 to 30 mcg per day.

Diabetics should not use supplemental Vanadium as the sole intervention in the management of their diabetes and should only use it with the advice of their attending practitioner. People with hypoglycemia should not use supplemental V as it may further lower blood glucose.

A more direct confirmatory test for Vanadium deficiency is the Doctor’s Data whole blood vanadium test.
