Vitamin D Testing
Vitamin D is integral in the development and maintenance of strong bones and good health. Just as you rely on a solid frame to hold up your house, skeletal health improves your quality of life and prevents the development of thin and brittle bones.
The staff here at Test Smartly Labs offers vitamin D testing that can determine problems and developments like osteoporosis. The earlier you pinpoint the problem, the more effectively it can be resolved.
Don’t I Get Vitamin D From the Sun?
While the sun doesn’t directly pass on vitamin D to the body, it does cause your body to produce it naturally. However, you can’t rely on the sun alone to maintain proper levels.
Your vitamin D test results will reveal if yours are too low or too high. From there, it’s easier to determine the best action plan. While you may be able to suffice with dietary changes including an increased consumption of fish, eggs, and dairy products, more serious cases may require direct medical attention.
While the sun is only one source of vitamin D, those who spend most of their time indoors or who work the night shift should consider vitamin D testing as a preventive measure whether or not they show symptoms.
