Detects deficiencies in Vitamin D (independently monitoring both Vitamin D2 and D3 status by LC-MS/MS) as a potential cause of health problems ranging from osteoporosis to cardiovascular disease.

Have you read the headlines lately? vitamin D really does matter!!

Vitamin D deficiency is a real problem today and does not have obvious symptoms, but increases your risk for more serious diseases. Researchers and experts say maintaining sufficient levels of Vitamin D are important in protecting the body from a wide range of illnesses, including flu, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, osteomalacia and autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis. In addition, Vitamin D deficiency is closely linked to increase in risk for strokes, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes (types 1 and 2), depression and several cancers, including breast and colon cancer.

With ZRT’s innovative blood spot test, there is no more wasting time, gas and money traveling to a phlebotomist where they stick a painful needle in your arm to pull your blood - you can now take this simple test in the comfort of your health care providers office – or even at home.

Blood spot testing of Vitamin D can help:

* Identify vitamin D deficiency as a potential cause of health problems
* Recommend the right dose of vitamin D as a supplement
* Monitor your D levels during supplementation to ensure you have adequate levels without overdosing
* Understand appropriate ways to safely increase sunlight exposure and modify your diet to include more vitamin D containing foods and/or supplements
* Track treatment progress

Once ZRT has received your dried blood spot sample in the laboratory, you will get your Vitamin D test results back in about a week. As you continue to monitor your Vitamin D levels, ZRT will generate a "History" test report with your newest test result compared with previous tests. This will enable you, and your health care provider, to track changes associated with interventions that raise Vitamin D levels, such as more sun exposure and Vitamin D therapy. If you have further questions about Vitamin D or blood spot testing, please ask your doctor, pharmacist, or other trained health care provider.

Vitamin D levels are associated with:

* Healthy immune systems, resist the flu , cold and cancer
* Healthy bones, prevent osteoporosis in men and women
* Proper brain function, feel better and remember more.
* Every cell of the body has receptors for vitamin D.
