This easy-to-use at-home Vitamin D Test Kit will give you a fast and accurate reading of how much Vitamin D is in your blood. It can be helpful to know your Vitamin D levels for a number of reasons.
The first is the wide variety of physical conditions that have been linked to low vitamin D levels. These include osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, pregnancy complications, autoimmune diseases, strokes, cancers, Alzheimer’s, obesity and more.
Knowing that you have low levels of vitamin D, coupled with symptoms that you have been struggling to get diagnosed, can help your GP get a clearer idea of your personal medical profile.
Additionally, knowing that your vitamin D levels are low means you can often rapidly take steps to remedy the situation. There are many foods that are naturally high in Vitamin D, such as salmon, tuna, egg yolks and beef liver. Supplements can help, too.
Low vitamin D levels may also provide you with the impetus you need to get outdoors more frequently. Vitamin D is known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’ because our bodies are able to create it when our skin is exposed to sunlight.
Taking small steps to boost your levels will often put you back in the normal range. In doing so, you may feel like you are taking positive steps concerning your health and well being, as vitamin D plays a critical role in your nervous system, immune system and musculoskeletal system.
