Vitamin D

Vitamin D

Overview

Vitamin D profile test is used to measure the levels of vitamin D in your body. Vitamin D is an essential compound required for proper growth and development of teeth and bones. There are two forms of vitamin D that can be measured in blood. They are 25-hydroxyvitamin D and 1, 25- dihydroxyvitamin D.

Preparation(Before)

Inform your doctor if you are on any medications, have any allergies or underlying medical conditions before your Vitamin D3. Your doctor will give specific instructions depending on your condition on how to prepare for Vitamin D3.

No specific preparation is needed for this test.

Result explanation

If your test results show low levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, it indicates that you may have vitamin D deficiency. This may be due to low absorption of vitamin D from intestines or low dietary intake of vitamin D in foods or due to less exposure to the sun. If your test results show high levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, it may indicate excess dietary intake of vitamin D through nutritional supplements or vitamin tablets.

If your test results show low levels of 1, 25-dihydroxy vitamin D, it may indicate kidney disease or kidney failure. Increase in the levels of 1, 25-dihydroxy vitamin D, may indicate sarcoidosis or lymphomas or excessive parathyroid hormone in the body.

If you receive abnormal test results, consult your health care provider immediately with your test results. Your doctor may recommend further tests, treatment, or lifestyle modifications based on your test results.
