What is a Vitamin D test used for?
The vitamin D test is used to monitor or screen vitamin D deficiency, bone malformations and weakness, body pains, etc.
What is included in the Vitamin D test?
The test measures total vitamin D content in the blood (25-hydroxy vitamin D). Additionally, the levels of vitamin D2 (25-hydroxy vitamin D2) and vitamin D3 (25-hydroxy vitamin D3) will also be measured.
Vitamin D2– Vitamin D2 is also known as ergocalciferol. The liver converts vitamin D2 into 25-hydroxy vitamin D2. Some sources of vitamin D2 include mushrooms, fortified foods, and dietary supplements.
Vitamin D3– Vitamin D3 is also referred to as cholecalciferol. Like vitamin D2, vitamin D3 is converted into 25-hydroxy vitamin D3 inside the body. Our body can synthesize vitamin D3 when the skin is exposed to sunlight. It can also be supplemented with animal foods like fish, egg yolk, etc. Vitamin D3 is more effective in raising the total vitamin D levels than vitamin D2.
Procedure for the Vitamin D test
The vitamin D test is similar to other routinely performed blood tests.
A trained phlebotomist will draw a small amount of blood by inserting the needle into the vein.
The collected blood sample will be transferred to a small vial or test tube. The sample will then be sent to a partner lab for further processing.
While inserting the needle into the vein, slight pain may be experienced in the arm. However, the pain will reduce immediately. Some individuals may also experience redness and swelling at the needle insertion site.
The procedure usually lasts for about 5-10 minutes.
