All vitamins test

What do I ask my doctor for if I want to see how my body is absorbing all vitamins and minerals?

There isn't one that I know of They have to request specific vitamins and minerals be tested. Some labs offer certain ones grouped together but I think that varies from lab to lab. You can see some examples here. This is the company I use.

In the lab I ask for checks they have a paper with check boxes.

I asked for all vitamins, all amino-acids, celiac, white blood cell count, iron, anemia....and they said it would probably be faster if I said what I didn't wanted to be checked for.
