Vitamin D (25-OH) deficiency test
Blood Spot Laboratory Service - available in the UK only
A vitamin D blood test can help identify whether you are vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D is obtained from two sources; around 90% from sunlight and 10% from foods. In winter, it can be difficult to gain sufficient vitamin D from exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D is an important nutrient for a healthy skeletal and immune system. The test measures the total amount of 25-OH Vitamin D2 and 25-OH Vitamin D3 in the blood which is an appropriate indicator of body stores.
A scientific study published in 2016 showed that capillary blood measurement of Vitamin D status by finger prick sampling has excellent correlation with venous samples.

Our regulated self test kits are a convenient, reliable and quick way to obtain a test result for a specific medical condition. Nevertheless, our best advice is to encourage you to use existing healthcare pathways wherever possible.
Whether you have a positive or a negative result with a self test kit, always speak with your GP if you are concerned about your symptoms.
