Vitamin D Test

Vitamin D Test

Vitamin D is a vital nutrient for the body, yet many of us don’t get enough of it. This can lead to a number of health problems, but the good news is that getting tested for Vitamin D and then supplementing with the right amount can have a host of positive benefits.

What is Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps regulate calcium absorption in the body. Primarily, it plays an essential role in bone health by helping the body absorb and use calcium, which is essential for strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D can also aid in immune system regulation, cell growth, and reducing inflammation, as well as potentially reducing the risk of certain cancers and other diseases such as type 1 diabetes. 

Vitamin D is found naturally in some foods such as fatty fish, eggs, mushrooms, and fortified foods like milk or orange juice. It can also be obtained through direct sunlight exposure for about 15-20 minutes a day. A deficiency in Vitamin D can be concerning and may lead to a wide range of health problems. Thus, getting enough of this important vitamin is essential for long-term health and well-being.

Why Should I Get Tested for Vitamin D?

Vitamin D testing can help identify any potential deficiencies, which can improve overall well-being. A vitamin D deficiency can lead to a number of health issues including weakened bones, increased risk of infection, high blood pressure, and even depression. Regular testing can help catch any potential deficiency before it becomes a major issue, allowing people to take preventive measures to improve their overall health. Testing for vitamin D levels should be part of any comprehensive health plan and can help maintain a person’s well-being for years to come.

Jessica came to see me at my home very last minute and she was incredible. I had been sick for more than a month at that point and was having no luck with walk in clinics. She took the time to examine me and talk to me about the potential issues. I haven't had a doctor's appointment like that in more than a decade. She also called me as soon as the lab work came back and I appreciate so much. Jessica is caring and compassionate and the absolute best. I can't imagine going back to a walk-in clinic ever again.
The care provided by Jessica, and the coordination provided by Judy, has been exceptional for me. I have not been able to secure a GP since moving provinces for school, which is incredibly challenging living with a complex health condition. Jessica truly takes the time to listen, get a holistic picture of your health concerns, answer all of your questions, and provide ample suggestions and solutions that you are comfortable with. She has been nothing short of amazing since accessing services, and was able to provide options for me I was not able to get after repeated ER visits. I am very grateful for her kindness and expertise as it relates to women's health and pain management - which rivals any doctor I have met to date - and I look forward to being a long-term patient under her care.
