VITAMIN D TEST
DETECTION OF LIFE-THREATENING DISEASES
WHY SHOULD I GET TESTED?
Vitamin D levels are not routinely checked during doctor visits; although, a deficiency is associated with stroke, coronary artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, diabetes mellitus, autoimmue disorders, and cancer.
Vitamin D plays a crucial role in forming teeth and bones. Without Vitamin D, bones would be brittle and unable to properly heal leading to rickets in children or osteoporosis in adults.
