However, some micronutrient deficiencies were detected, namely suboptimal plasma antioxidant capacity (range 1.0 to 4.5 mmol/L), elevated PIVKA II (range 0.23 to 4.84 ng/mL) and elevated Hcys (range 3.2 to 141.6 [micro]mol/L), which are indicative of antioxidant nutrients (vitamins, minerals and endogenous non-food derived antioxidants), vitamin K and folic acid status, respectively.
