Vitamin D

Vitamin D is one of the most unique vitamins, and our body can make this vitamin itself just with the help of the sun. That is why it is often called the "sunshine vitamin". Food is another source of vitamin D. This vitamin plays a significant role in the skeletal system, but an insufficient amount of it may create some health issues.

A vitamin D test is also available at "Redcliffe Labs", a diagnostic company that is committed to offering its quality services for the well-being of people.

Vitamin D deficiency has become more common in the last decade, and if left untreated, it can lead to rickets (in children) and osteoporosis (in adults), as well as other illnesses. Adding a little sunshine in day-to-day life is a good thing for the bones and for the overall health too.

Vitamin D plays a crucial role in the body. It helps in the signal transmission of the brain, manages muscle function, maintains proper bone health, and also fights off many infections. But the deficiency sign is not easily noticeable until the vitamin D deficiency becomes severe.

Symptoms Of Vitamin D Deficiency

Here we are mentioning some signs and symptoms of vitamin D deficiency:

Severe or prolonged vitamin D deficiency may lead to "rickets" in children, in which bones become soft and deformed due to weak bone tissues. Osteomalacia in adults is a condition with weak and soft bones, but in osteoporosis, bones become porous and brittle, and it is a later stage of osteomalacia.

Muscle weakness, fatigue, body aches, muscle cramps, joint pain, and mood changes.

Causes Of Vitamin D Deficiency In The Body

There are many causes of vitamin D insufficiency, like not getting enough sunlight, diets lacking or low vitamin D content, liver diseases, renal diseases, less vitamin D production by the skin, gastrointestinal disorders, weight loss surgeries, obesity, celiac disorders, cystic fibrosis, and so on.

Talk to the physician if someone notices these symptoms. He can recommend a blood test to check for vitamin D deficiency and will also advise you on how to prevent the vitamin D deficiency.

Diagnosing Vitamin D Deficiency

There are two types of vitamin D tests, the most common of which is the 25-hydroxyvitamin D, or 25(OH)D test. For the test, a well-trained phlebotomist takes the blood from a vein in the arm as usual for testing. And there is no fasting required for the Vitamin D test either.
