Understanding Vitamin D (25-Hydroxy) in Asansol


What is Vitamin D (25-Hydroxy) in Asansol?

The Vitamin D (25-Hydroxy) test is tailored to measure vitamin D levels in the body and is available at an affordable price in Asansol with Tata 1mg labs. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble essential nutrient that helps the body maintain strong bones & teeth and a healthy immune system. It can be obtained from healthy exposure to sunlight and dietary sources. 

Your doctor may suggest the Vitamin D (25-Hydroxy) test if they notice health issues associated with low vitamin D levels like an increased risk of fractures, muscle weakness and lethargy, dysfunction of the immune system, and increased risk of chronic diseases like diabetes. This test also monitors the treatment response in people receiving medication for abnormal vitamin D levels. 

It is generally recommended to stop taking vitamin D supplements before taking Vitamin D (25-Hydroxy) test, as they may affect the accuracy of the test results. However, you may consume a regular diet before taking the test.

What does Vitamin D (25-Hydroxy) measure?

The Vitamin D (25-Hydroxy) test measures the levels of vitamin D in the body. It is an essential nutrient that can be synthesized in the body upon healthy exposure to sunlight or absorbed from dietary sources. It majorly exists in two forms: Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Vitamin D2 is present in plants, such as yeast or mushrooms, and is available as a supplement in fortified foods, and vitamin D3 is found in foods like cheese, green vegetables, mushrooms, egg yolks, and fatty fish.

Both forms of vitamin D (D2 and D3) need to undergo some chemical changes before being available for use in the body. These chemical changes take place in the liver or kidneys. The liver converts vitamin D to 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OH vitamin D). The Vitamin D (25-Hydroxy) test measures the level of this 25-OH vitamin D as it is the primary form of vitamin D that circulates in the blood.
