Any IV Vit C of 10 grams and over need to have this blood test run:

Glucose 6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD), Quantitative, Whole Blood and Red Blood Cell Count (RBC)  

For cancer support, when doing High Dose IV Vit C of 50g - 100g, it is recommended to have 

plasma levels reach of 350 to 400 mg/dL We can check this with a glycogen monitor on site before and after your IV.

G6PD Biomarker:

Before beginning high dose IV Vit C of over 10 grams, you need to have a blood test for the marker known as G6PD. This is an inherited condition known as Glucose 6 Phosphate Dehydrogenase.

If you have the marker, your cells can’t tolerate high dose vitamin C. If you have G6PD deficiency, you can not have IV Vit C during that time. Though rare, this can happen from certain chemotherapy medications.

Other Labs: 

 

If you have decreased kidney filtration or liver disease you will need to be monitored more closely by your doctor, although problems from IV Vitamin C for those with these conditions are still rare.
