We offer Vitamin D testing in Central London. Getting your levels tested can be a helpful tool in monitoring & diagnosing conditions.

The body uses vitamin D to regulate levels of calcium & phosphate, the nutrients which protect & nourish the bones, teeth, & muscles. Vitamin D is crucial for maintaining healthy bones & the efficient metabolism of glucose. Most of the body’s vitamin D comes from sunshine exposure in the warmer months, & thus vitamin D deficiencies are much more common during the winter. Vitamin D is also found in our diet in oily fish, red meat, eggs, & some fortified products.

When should I get tested?

The test for vitamin D can be a helpful tool for diagnosing conditions related to decreased bone density, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, depression, or rickets (a childhood condition). Your doctor may also require you to undergo regular blood testing when taking vitamin D supplements or other medications.

What does the test include

This is a blood test.

Our clinic will email your results once they are ready. One of our GPs will call you directly if you already had a consultation with us. If you booked just for the test only, you will not be able to go over the results with our doctors, but you can book a consultation with us afterwards if you would like assistance with evaluating your results.
