Vitamin D Test, Serum

KSh4,800

Test Description

A Vitamin D Test is a blood test that measures the level of vitamin D in your blood. Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and teeth, and it also helps keep your muscles, nerves, and immune system working normally. Having low levels of vitamin D is a common problem that can lead to bone disorders and other medical conditions.

Indications of the Test

A Vitamin D Test is used to screen for low levels of vitamin D in your blood so you can treat it with supplements before it causes any medical conditions. If you have a known bone disorder or a problem absorbing calcium, a vitamin D test may be used to see if a lack of vitamin D is causing your condition. Your healthcare provider may order a Vitamin D test if you have:

  • Osteomalacia, soft bones, often with muscle weakness
  • Low bone density, which can lead to osteoporosis
  • Rickets, a problem with bone growth in children.

Patient preparation/Instructions

No special preparation is needed for a Vitamin D Test. However, it is recommended to inform your healthcare provider about any medications or supplements you are taking, as some of them may interfere with the test results
