how do they test for vitamin/mineral deficiencies?

I'm beginning to suspect I may have some sort of nutritional deficiency. How do they test for this stuff? Is it just at a regular doctors or do you have to see a specialist?

Re: how do they test for vitamin/mineral deficiencies?

The best place I have found for the tests you are describing is Spectracell in Houston... They will send you doctor the kit with instructions on how to collect the blood samples, along with intructions on how to send it back to them. Insurance will cover the cost, or most insurance will....
