Vitamin D Levels Test

  • Do you know your Vitamin D levels? Do you know the proper conversion of numbers revealed by the tests?
  • Is it possible that your levels are much lower than you previously thought? Is your well-being negatively affected by not knowing your REAL levels of this vitamin?
  • Do you know why so many people are still deficient despite of supplementation?
  • Have you thought what role sun-screens play in your D vitamin deficiency?
  • Do you realize that D vitamin deficiency has been involved not only with lower bone density, but also with skin problems, lower immunity, hypertension, depression and with 16 different types of cancer?
  • Dr. Oz says that 75% of Americans are Vitamin D deficient, without realizing it! So do you think situation in Ireland is much better, having here much less sun exposure than in USA?
  • Is it not wise to get this sorted and do D vitamin test together with gaining wider perspective on this issue?

How Wide Spread Is The Problem of Vitamin D Deficiency?

Before the year 2000, very few doctors ever considered the possibility that you might be vitamin D deficient.

But as the technology to measure vitamin D became inexpensive and widely available, more and more studies were done, and it became increasingly clear that vitamin D deficiency was absolutely rampant. For example, according to one of the leading vitamin D researchers, Dr. Michael Holick:

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 32 percent of children and adults throughout the US were vitamin D deficient — and this is grossly underestimated as they used vitamin D levels that were not consistent with optimal health.
  • The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that 50 percent of children aged one to five years, and 70 percent of children between the ages of six and 11, are deficient or insufficient in vitamin D.

 

Higher risk group for vitamin D deficiency involves:

people who spend most of the time indoor

people over 50 years old

people with skin problems

people who use sun-screens

people with obvious or hidden (undiagnosed) liver problems, insufficiency

people who use anti-cholesterol medication – Statins         (Statins may lower 3 different key nutrients)

people with obesity

people with Crohn’s, celiac and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and inflammatory bowel disease

people with heavy metal (inc. mercury) body burden toxicity (i.e. those who have or had in the past dental metal amalgam fillings)

people with darker skin complexion (of African origin)
