Vitamin D is also known as “calciferol.” It is a fat-soluble vitamin and can be obtained from appropriate sun exposure, natural food items and supplements.
The Vitamin D gained from natural sources is biologically inert and undergoes the activation twice, in order to be absorbed. The process is as follows: The first hydroxylation, occurs in the liver, converting vitamin D to 25-hydroxyvitamin commonly known as “calcidiol.” While the second hydroxylation occurring primarily in the kidney, forms the physiologically active compound 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin, also called “calcitriol”
It aids the body to absorb minerals from your diet, so that appropriate levels of nutrients, such as calcium, phosphate, parathyroid hormone is maintained.
However, it is essential to note that the absorption of vitamin D by sunlight is only triggered in the presence of substantial serum Vitamin D level i.e., it functions as a biomarker of sun exposure.
This Serum concentration of Vitamin D i.e.,25(OH)D is the main indicator of vitamin D status as it reflects both vitamin D manufactured internally and vitamin D consumed externally. Which means a measure of the vitamin D produced endogenously and the vitamin D gained by supplements and food
An estimate of healthy levels of Serum 25- Hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] Concentrations and Health is represented as follows:
<30 nmol/L and ,12ng/mL: Is associated with vitamin D deficiency
30 to 50 nmol/L and 12 to <20ng/mL: Is associated inadequate for bone and overall health
<50 to ≥ nmol/L and ≥20 ng/mL: Is associated with adequate for bone and overall health
>125 nmol/L and >50 ng/mL: Is associated with potential adverse effects
Vitamin D is responsible for multiples roles and function in the body. Some of them comprise of the following:
The risk factors of Vitamin D deficiency include the following factors as stated below:
These risk factors further enhance the risk of consequent multiple diseases and disorders such as:
The At-home vitamin D tests, measure the level of serum Vitamin D. It indicates whether the level of Vitamin D is appropriate (Ideal levels), high (Toxicity) or low (Deficiency).
These tests are helpful providing an estimate to the healthcare professional at 3 levels:
The At-home Vitamin D test measures the 25-hydroxyvitamin D. This at-home service provides an ease to the patients in understanding their Vitamin D levels, deficiency, toxicity or to monitor the risk factors that can lead to diseases and disorders in future.
It is recommended to undertake this test and discuss the report with the physician/ health care provider before processing to the next steps of the treatment.
To determine the health status and health outcomes, this test could be a reliable, cost- friendly test performed at home
This test will be performed using a standard blood test. The steps enlisted below could help you with the preparation of the test in advance and allow you to anticipate the procedure ahead.
During the test
The healthcare professional will draw the blood sample from the vein using an appropriate needle. A short finger prick would be sufficient to derive the blood sample from youngsters and newborns.
After the test:
In general, there is minute risk involved in the post-care. In terms of side effects, you may feel the following symptoms:
The cost of Vitamin D test, which involves measuring 25 Dihydroxyvitamin D (serum level) differs from one region to another and the facility provided.
