Default Vitamin B3 levels in Blood

Hello All,

Check the B3 vitamin levels below from Labcorp.

(Vitamin B3) nicotinic acid < 5 ng/mL
LABCORP Normal Range 0 -5 ng/mL
Mayo Clinic Normal Range 0.50 - 8.45 ug/mL

I am confused in the metric systems. Every lab says in microgram/mL
nanogram is smaller that Microgram.

Are my B3 levels low.?

I have high Cholesterol and Triglycerides. Previously I had B12 deficiency which is now high.

Share your views.

Thanks

Lab ranges vary from lab to lab.

You should direct this question to your doctor.

It is rare for people in US to have low niacin... this causes pellegra which is not common in US anymore. (but more so in developing countries.)

This is an interesting and informative monograph on niacin.
