Vitamin D testing
Vitamin D is important for growth, good health and strong bones. Vitamin D is mainly made in the skin from exposure to sunlight. It can be difficult to obtain from food. Vitamin D deficiency is therefore very common especially in Ireland due to the lack of sunshine!
Low Vitamin D levels can cause symptoms such as tiredness and general aches in pains. Very low levels can cause more serious problems such as rickets (in children) and osteomalacia (in adults).
A simple blood test can check your Vitamin D level so please call us to schedule an appointment if you think this could be an issue for you.
