Description

Clinical significance, indications and contraindications for the test.
Vitamin A (retinol, axerophthol) is involved in the formation of rhodopsin in the retina, acts as a bone growth factor and is a cofactor in the synthesis of steroid hormones. Lack of vitamin A can cause night blindness, dry skin, hair loss and, in severe deficiency, corneal opacity. Vitamin A deficiency can be associated not only with insufficient supply, but also with chronic lipid malabsorption syndrome, liver disease, intestinal parasites and alcoholism. After long-term use of high doses of vitamin A, hypervitaminosis can occur, causing first fatigue and later growth disorders and bone fractures.
