Vitamin D plays a crucial role in the body by absorbing calcium and maintaining strong bones for a lifetime. Vitamin D2 and D3 are obtained from dietary sources.Cholesterol can also be broken down by the body to Vitamin D3 with the help of direct sunlight. The Vitamin D 25 Hydroxy test is the best way to monitor Vitamin D levels. This is a Vitamin D2 & Vitamin D3 test.
Causes of Vitamin D3 deficiency:
Kidneys are not able to convert vitamin D to its active form. With age, it is observed that kidneys are less able to convert vitamin D to its active form, thus increasing their risk of vitamin D deficiency.
Digestive tract cant adequately absorb vitamin D. Certain medical problems, including Crohn’s disease, cystic fibrosis, and celiac disease, can affect your intestine’s ability to absorb vitamin D from the food you eat.
Vitamin D deficiency indicates osteoporosis, rickets and a variety of bone disorders. Extensive studies also relate low Vitamin D levels to Diabetes, Cardiac Diseases, Stroke and even Cancer.
An accurate way to measure how much vitamin D is in your body is the 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood test. A level of 20 nanograms/milliliter to 50 ng/mL is considered adequate for healthy people. A level less than 12 ng/mL indicates vitamin D deficiency.
A healthy Vitamin D level indicates good health!
