Dear Brains Trust,
 
We are undertaking a plasma vitamin C review and have been  looking for the original source for plasma vitamin C reference intervals / decision limits.
 
So far we have found are from the Chromsystems Package inserts for healthy patients:
 
  1. Gressner AM Arnt T.  Lexikon der Medizinischen Laboratoriumsdiagnostik,  Band 1 - Kliniasche Chemie. 1.Aulf, Springer Medizin Verlag Heidelberg 2007 – (RI: 26.1-84.6 umol/L)
  2. Roberts L. et Al.  Ascorbic acid determination with an automated enzymatic procedure. Clin Chem 1997;43:154-157 (RI: 23-85 umol/L; n=20)
 
There is other information that notes Scurvy is evident in vitamin C  levels <11umol/L .
 
Can anyone help with other robust original data related to vitamin C decision limits?
 
Regards
 
Ronda
