Recent studies have shown that our lifestyle transitions to sedentary, indoor activities and jobs have had the unexpected effect of causing a significant drop in levels of Vitamin D. This critical vitamin helps with the metabolism of calcium, which is responsible for neuron health. Without Vitamin D, both adults and children can experience such symptoms as anxiety, depression, insomnia, and restlessness.
There is also new research that shows Vitamin D levels are essential for the prevention of muscle weakness, heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure. Just a few minutes a day of regular sun exposure or quality Vitamin D supplements can contribute significantly to your health.
This test kit includes everything you need to evaluate levels of Vitamin D from the comfort and privacy of your own home. Because the equipment has been developed for accuracy and sensitivity, it only takes the collection of a few drops of blood for the test card to be evaluated. Your results are processed in an accredited laboratory to ensure your information is correct. A physician reviews the documentation before it is returned to you.
Your kit comes with your test card for blood collection, the form you need to request that the Vitamin D test be performed, and a secure bag for the return of your sample. Clear instructions are simple to use and easy to understand, and you are provided with an alcohol prep pad, a gauze pad, two pain-minimizing lancets, and an adhesive bandage. Shipping is included in the price of the kit, and you receive a postage paid return envelope in the package. There is no extra charge to get your laboratory report, which is mailed to you as soon as your results are ready.
Please note that health laws in New York State do not permit specimens mailed from New York to be tested, and laboratory data cannot be mailed out to New York residents and doctors.
