The methylmalonic acid test, also known as a methlmalonate lab test and an MMA level test, measures the methylmalonic acid blood level.

Methylmalonic acid is an acid that has a role in an energy production process in the body known as the Krebs cycle. Methylmalonic acid requires vitamin B12 to function properly in the body and, as a result, is sometimes used to evaluate B12 blood levels and possible deficiencies.
