At Pathlab360, we offer vitamin D3 blood test. The test helps evaluate the level of vitamin D in the body. Despite its name, vitamin D is not a regular vitamin. It’s actually a steroid hormone that you are designed to obtain primarily through sun exposure, not via your diet. In the kidney, 25-Hydroxy vitamin D changes into an active form of the vitamin. The active form of vitamin D helps control and Phosphate levels in the body.

Symptoms of vitamin D deficiency: Bone pain and muscle weakness can mean you have a vitamin D deficiency. Low blood levels of the vitamin have been associated with the following:

  • Increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease
  • Cognitive impairment in older adults
  • Severe asthma in children
  • Cancer

Research suggests that Vitamin D could play a role in the prevention and treatment of a number of different conditions, including type 1 and type 2 diabetes, hypertension, glucose intolerance, and multiple sclerosis.

Individuals suitable for testing:

  • Individuals with suspected Vitamin D deficiency (e.g. those with persistent, nonspecific musculoskeletal Pain, the elderly, housebound individuals, etc).
  • Individuals with suspected toxicity.
  • Individuals being treated for vitamin D-related disorders.
  • Monitor people who have had gastric bypass surgery and may not be able to absorb enough vitamin D.
  • People who don’t get much exposure to the sun.
  • Patients diagnosed with any of the vitamin D related disease (cancer, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, depression, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson, epilepsy and others).
  • Patients with osteoporosis or rickets.
  • Overweight individuals with a BMI > 25.
  • Individuals tasking vitamin D supplementation greater than 50mcg (2000IUS) per day

Test Procedure:

  • Do not eat anything for 8-12 hours before the test.
  • The 25-hydroxy vitamin D test requires a common blood test. Your doctor or a lab technician will draw blood from a vein in your arm using a needle. A quick finger prick will more than likely provide enough for a blood sample in children and infants.
  • The guidelines for serum (blood) 25(OH) D levels are as follows:
  • Deficiency: 25(OH)D level is below 12ng/mL.
  • Insufficiency: 25(OH)D level is between 12-30ng/mL.
  • The major source of vitamin D comes from exposure to sunlight. Get some sun exposure on your skin Excessive: 25(OH)D level over 50ng/mL.

Can Vitamin D deficiency be prevented?

Without sunscreen for 20-30 minutes in the morning or late afternoon. Do use sunscreen during the midday to protect your skin.

A few foods naturally contain vitamin D and other foods are fortified with it. The amount found in food is not enough for treating a deficiency and may not be enough to maintain adequate levels unless combined with sun exposure.

Some facts about Vitamin D:

  • While the body can make vitamin D when the skin is exposed to sunlight, modern life affords inadequate sun exposure to meet our vitamin D needs.
  • Dark skinned people make less vitamin D than those with light skin.
  • Aging skin makes 75% less vitamin D than young skin.
  • Use of sunscreens blocks vitamin D production in the skin.
  • Most people living modern life spend a larger proportion of their time indoors and with most of their skin surface covered by clothing or sunscreen when outdoors.

Dietary source of Vitamin D3:

Vitamin D rich foods include cold water fish such as wild Salmon, wild cod and sardines and cod liver oil. Egg volkd fortified milk, yoghurt, orange juice, cheese have Vitamin D but, it is difficult to regularly eat enough of these foods to build up your Vitamin D stores.

Be sure to take the correct biologically active form of vitamin D which is vitamin D3 (chole calciferol), not vitamin D2.
