Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is made by the body after exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun. Vitamin D can also be obtained by taking supplements and from eating certain foods. This test provides the total level of vitamin D found in a patient’s blood serum and provides information on the levels of vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 in blood serum which is helpful for physicians prescribing therapy for vitamin D deficiency. A physician would typically evaluate a vitamin D test result in connection with several other factors affecting a patient’s health, such as medical history, gender and age. Recently, they have found that in some cases, relatively low levels of vitamin D may increase your risk of other diseases.
Cost = $35
