The most widely used test of thiamine status is measurement of the activity of the dependent enzyme transketolase in red cells and its increase when additional thiamine is added. From these two measures an activation coefficient can be calculated the normal range for erythrocyte transketolase activation coefficient, ETKAC, is.
