I'm about to schedule my annual physical and blood work and am curious what tests are recommended for vegans.
I've been vegetarian for a few weeks (only animal product is whey protein) and once the whey is gone I will be vegan. My goal with the tests is to establish a baseline for future comparison and to keep an eye on areas that veganism can complicate. If it matters, I live in the US, have insurance, and am fine with out of pocket costs.
From my research I found the below recommended. Am I missing anything? Or is this overdoing it?
CBC – Complete Blood Count - With Differential and Platelets
CMP – Comprehensive Chemistry/Metabolic Panel
Folate, Folic Acid
HS-CRP (high-sensitivity C-reactive protein)
Iron - Ferritin, Total, and TIBC
MMA – Methylmalonic Acid, Serum
TSH: Thyroid Stimulating Hormone
Vitamin D - 25 Hydroxy (Vitamin D-3)
