Trisomy 21 Research recommends that individuals who are using Nutrivene have blood testing completed 6 to 12 months after beginning Nutrivene and each year thereafter.  The following blood tests should be completed:

•     Vitamin A (Retinol)

To obtain the most accurate results from your blood test, we recommend following the instructions below.

5 Years of Age and Under

4 hour fasting prior to blood test

No Nutrivene (Daily Supplement, Daily Enzyme, NightTime Formula) the night before and morning of blood test (If using essential fatty acids and/or Piracetam, these should also be eliminated the night before and morning of blood test)

Thyroid Testing – T3, T4, and TSH every year for life
