Vitamin D deficiency is very common within the UK due to our lack of year-round sunshine. The One-step Vitamin D test is an easy and fast way to know whether your vitamin D is sufficient. You may like to take the test to assess whether you need supplementation or to check whether your vitamin D status is improving as a result of Vitamin D supplementation.
What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is an essential fat-soluble nutrient responsible for bone health, Immune health and muscle function. We are recommended to have 400iu or 10mcg of vitamin D per day. The primary source of Vitamin D is sunlight. This converts inactive vitamin D in human skin, into an active form which stimulates health benefits.
Vitamin D Deficiency
However, because the UK does not get the right level of sunshine throughout the winter months (September-March), most people are deficient in vitamin D. According to the Chief Medical Officers of the UK say these groups are at particular risk of vitamin D deficiency:
- Pregnant and breastfeeding women, especially teenagers and young women.
- Infants and children under 5 years of age.
- People 65 and over.
People who have little or no exposure to the sun. This includes covering up for cultural reasons, people who are housebound or who stay indoors for long periods of time.
People with darker skin, such as African, African-Caribbean and South Asian origin. These groups are not able to make as much vitamin D as those with paler skin.
