$0.00$80.00

Vitamin D3 tests are important because Vitamin D3 is necessary for a variety of bodily functions, including absorbing calcium for strong bones and reducing the risk of certain diseases such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, and cardiovascular disease. Low levels of Vitamin D3 can be caused by insufficient sun exposure and can be improved by lifestyle modifications, such as spending more time outdoors or taking Vitamin D3 supplements.

Description

Vitamin D3 tests are important when assessing an individual’s health because Vitamin D3 is essential for a number of bodily processes. Vitamin D3 helps the body absorb calcium, which is important for bone strength and development, and healthy levels of Vitamin D3 are also associated with a reduced risk of developing certain types of cancer, autoimmune diseases, and cardiovascular disease. Vitamin D3 is produced by the body when exposed to sunlight, so individuals who do not spend much time outdoors may not be getting enough of it. Testing for Vitamin D3 levels can help to determine if an individual is deficient, allowing doctors to then recommend lifestyle changes, such as increasing their exposure to sunlight or taking Vitamin D3 supplements, to improve the individual’s overall health.
