Blood Spot Testing Kit - for Vitamin D

Are you getting enough of the Sunshine Vitamin?

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that acts like a hormone, regulating the formation of bone and the absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the intestine as well as helping to control the movement of calcium between bone and blood.

Vitamin D3 is predominantly synthesized in the body after exposure to sunlight as we are only able to get a small amount from our diet. The winter season and most sun block products inhibit the body's ability to produce optimal levels of Vitamin D. As a result, Vitamin D3 supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure our bodies receive an adequate supply.

Blood Spot Testing Kit

How are my Vitamin D levels determined?

The Vitamin D level in your blood is determined in an NHS laboratory using a Mass Spectrometer which can look at substances in blood at very low levels.

How do I get my Vitamin D results?

Your report is sent to the address supplied with your sample within 5 working days of receipt. It uses a 'traffic light' system to help you interpret your results.

Results Interpretation Service

As well as your Vitamin D result, the report will indicate your personal Vitamin D status in relation to the currently recognized reference intervals.

Vitamin D result (nmol/L) Interpretation
   
Less than 15 Severe Deficiency
15 to 30 Deficiency
30.1 to 50 Insufficiency
Greater than 50 Adequate

If your Vitamin D status is insufficient, deficient or severely deficient it may indicate you require supplementation. We sell a wide range of Vitamin D supplements so you're sure to find one that meets your needs.
