Vitamin D and calcium are important to maintain healthy, strong bones. This blood test can help to highlight any problems in this area. Men or women over 45 years of age who are concerned about bone health, people with a diet that does not include fish or eggs or supplemented foods like margarine, the over 60's who are likely to have weak bones, people with kidney conditions and intestinal conditions, pregnant women, people rarely exposed to sunlight and people who take Vitamin supplements can all take this test. Vitamin D can be low in pregnancy, in people who don't eat fish or eggs, and when Vitamin D is not properly absorbed from food because of an intestinal or digestive problem. Kidney disease can also lead to low levels. People on Vitamin supplements can inadvertently have a high level of Vitamin D.
Watching this short video is the best way to understand how easy it is to obtain your sample. 400 micro-litres, 4-8 drops of blood are required to send to us for testing. Click on this link: Finger prick blood sample video
The normal level of Vitamin D is 20-40 ng/ml and levels lower than 20 constitute a deficiency. Supplements of Vitamin D (400-800 IU per day and sometimes more) can be given along with Calcium to correct the problem.
Levels above 70 ng/ml are abnormally high and supplements should be stopped if they are being taken.
