Vitamin D is crucial to your physical wellbeing, yet many adults fail to get enough from diet and lifestyle alone, particularly as they age. Deficiency is associated with a weakened immune system, issues with insulin production and poor bone health but prevention is possible.
This test is ideal for those who have bone-health problems, rarely spend time outside, have conditions that affect fat absorption, have a darker complexion or are obese. Symptoms of vitamin D deficiency are subtle; muscle pain, hair loss, impaired hearing and fatigue are indicators that you should get tested.
Biomarkers tested: 25-hydroxyvitamin D
Collection method: Finger prick sample
