About Vitamin D
Vitamin D refers to a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for increasing intestinal absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate, and zinc. Vitamin D is transported to the liver where it is metabolised to 25-hydroxy vitamin D. In medicine, a 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood test is used to determine vitamin D concentration in the body. The blood concentration of 25-hydroxy vitamin D (including D2 and D3) is considered the best indicator of vitamin D status. Almost every cell in your body has receptors for vitamin D and they all require a “sufficient” level of vitamin D for adequate functioning. The health risks associated with vitamin D deficiency are far more severe than previously thought. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to various serious diseases including; osteoporosis, osteomalacia, multiple sclerosis (MS), cardiovascular diseases, pregnancy complications, diabetes, depression, stroke, autoimmune diseases, flu, cancer, infectious diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity and higher mortality. The measurement of 25-hydroxy vitamin D levels is now considered a medically important screening test, and maintaining sufficient levels of vitamin D not only improves bone health but may also help improve overall health and well-being.
How does the MyCare Vitamin D test work?
Prick your finger quickly and easily with the sterile finger pricker supplied to obtain a drop of blood. Add the drop of blood to the test device followed by a few drops of developer and wait 10 minutes before reading your result. It is as simple as that.
The MyCare Vitamin D test is a rapid immunochromatographic test to detect the level of total 25-hydroxy vitamin D in human blood and will give you a yes/no result as to whether your vitamin D level is sufficient.
The cut-off value of the test is 30 ng/mL ± 4 ng/mL.
How does our test compare with a test from your doctor?
The test has been shown to give results equivalent to doctor’s test and is regulated according to the IVD Directive 98/79EC which demonstrates that the test has been independently assessed by doctors and medical scientists and found to be easy to use most people and gives reliable results.
What does the result mean?
- A Vitamin D level higher than 30ng/mL is the normal level for adults
- If your Vitamin D level reading is lower, then you should speak with your doctor or pharmacist for further advice
