Biomarker: 25-OH-VD Sample: BLOOD Results: 2 HRS Phlebotomy fee: £10.00 The 25-hydroxy vitamin D (25-OH-VD) test measures the amount of vitamin D in your body. Vitamin D is an important nutrient that helps the body absorb calcium and maintain strong bones. It also has other important functions, such as supporting the immune system and regulating cell growth. Vitamin D deficiency can present with various symptoms, which may include: -- Bone and muscle pain: Generalized pain or aching in the bones, joints, and muscles. -- Fatigue and weakness: Persistent tiredness, lack of energy, and muscle weakness. -- Bone loss or osteoporosis: Vitamin D plays a crucial role in calcium absorption and bone health, so deficiency can lead to decreased bone density and an increased risk of fractures. -- Increased susceptibility to infections: Vitamin D deficiency may weaken the immune system, making individuals more prone to respiratory infections, such as colds and flu. -- Depression or mood changes: Some studies suggest a link between low vitamin D levels and an increased risk of depression or mood disorders. -- Impaired wound healing: Vitamin D deficiency may affect the body's ability to heal wounds or recover from injuries. -- Hair loss: In some cases, vitamin D deficiency can contribute to hair loss or thinning.
