    WHY SHOULD I PERFORM A VITAMIN D TEST?

    Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones. Deficiency extremely common and affects around 1 billion people around the world. The main risks of developing vitamin D deficiency is lack of exposure to sunlight and inadequate intake from your diet.

    Vitamin D works in the body to affect calcium regulation which is essential to maintain healthy teeth, bones and muscles, deficiency of the vitamin can therefore affect your bone health, muscle health, immune function and mood.

    Signs and symptoms might include:

    • Fatigue
    • Bone pain
    • Muscle weakness, muscle aches, or muscle cramps
    • Mood changes, like depression

    Deficiency has also been linked to a variety of other health concerns including cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, severe asthma and even cancer.

    It is therefore very important to get a test done to check your Vitamin D levels and see if you need to make changes to your diet and lifestyle or consider taking supplements to bring your levels up to the correct range.
