Get your vitamin D tested quarterly—AT HOME!

For those of you who have been in the office recently, you have probably heard me suggest getting your vitamin D level tested. In today’s current climate, it is more important than ever to know your vitamin D level. 

There is no way to predict where your vitamin D level is with muscle testing, so having your blood tested quarterly is very important. 10,000IU’s of vitamin D daily is typically recommended but some people need more and some need less. Bloodwork is the only way to know.

Because most people don’t get blood drawn quarterly, I have a simple solution: The Vitamin D home test. Kits are available at the office for $49. This simple at home test is a great way to determine your vitamin D level. 

I recommend a vitamin D level of between 80-100ng/ml. Anything below 75ng/ml is just not enough. This data is supported by medical literature and is extremely important in cancer prevention.

Synopsis:

The largest meta-analysis ever conducted of studies published between 1966 and 2013 showed that 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels less than 75 nmol/L may be too low for safety and associated with higher all-cause mortality. All-disease mortality is reduced to 1.0 with serum vitamin D levels greater than100 nmol/L. 

Diseases related to lack of sunlight or vitamin D include:

breast cancer, diabetes, heart disease, ovarian cancer, osteoporosis, SAD, psoriasis, colon cancer, high blood pressure, MS, prostate cancer, rickets and tooth decay

One quick note: quality matters. If you are supplementing with vitamin D, be sure it is a high quality supplement that is made in America (including the raw materials). Today, more than 93% of prescriptions and over-the-counter products are made in China and sold in the United States. There are concerns regarding lapses in safety standards and quality control in Chinese manufacturing.
