Why have a blood profile test and a vitamin d test done?

Why have a blood profile test and a vitamin d test done?

Why have lab tests: You don't know what you don't know. I deal with a proactive approach to health in functional medicine, so I do a lot of labs. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, so you want to know your level before you take a very high dose. Being low is a risk factor for osteoporosis, major depression, and even increases your risk for several cancers. ...Read more

What level of vitamin d is normal for you?

From 30 to 80ng/ml: The normal vitamin d level ranges from 30-80ng/ml (may vary somewhat in different lab). Thus, level less than 30 is considered deficient. I have tested many patients and have never seen anyone having above 65ng/ml--i gues because we generally don't get get enough sun exposure and/or not getting adequate intake from diet. Consult doc. Good luck... Ng=nanogram. ...Read more

What is a normal sugar level for pregnancy?

What is a normal sugar level for pregnancy?

What really matters: What you really want to ask is: how well does my body while pregnant break down carbohydrates (sugar)? This is routinely tested during 24 to 28 weeks of pregnancy, when women drink a defined amount of glucose (e.g., 50 grams) and then have their glucose level taken an hour later. If at that time glucose levels exceed 140 mg/dl (140 mg%), more testing is needed; below that you are in good shape. ...Read more

Lightheadedness,fatigue for about a year.got blood test hemoglobin is 134 is it normal ?

Not anemic : Hemoglobin concentration is usually expressed in grams per deciliter (g/dL). A hemoglobin concentration of 13.4 g/dL is perfectly normal. That is the same as 134 grams per liter. I don't know the cause of your symptom, but it isn't anemia. ...Read more

What would a retic blood test look for? Is that good if mine is normal?

Retic blood test: The tests for "retics" or reticulocytes measures red blood cell precursors. It is done to determine if a person with a low red blood cell count (or hemoglobin) is replacing the blood normally. A normal retic level is not necessarily a normal result, it depends on the circumstances. For example, a normal retic count when the overall hemoglobin level is low is abnormal. Hope that helps! ...Read more

I have been advised that a recent blood test shows my levels of Vitamin D is 8. What does this mean for me?

Serious deficiency: The level that you're at is critically low. You need to start proper supplementation right away. It's also important to take vitamin K2 and vitamin A along with D3. Make sure you have your doctor follow your blood levels until you get to 50 ng/dl. Get more information here www.vitamindcouncil.org. ...Read more

Is 12 considered below the normal range for a Vit D blood test result for a 48 yr woman ? Could this be a serious deficiency w/complication?

Is 12 considered below the normal range for a Vit D blood test result for a 48 yr woman ? Could this be a serious deficiency w/complication?

Too low: Rather than ask, "Serious?" -- please address this. It may be hard to get enough sunlight in the northern US in winter, and it's time to ask your physician about diet (worth considering -- fortified foods or the few that are naturally rich) and/or supplementing (easier). I'm glad this was detected. You may find you feel MUCH better once this is addressed. ...Read more

Blood result showed that I was deficient of vitamin D. I scored half of what a normal level is.Type of vitamin D should I take and how much (IU) a day?

Blood result showed that I was deficient of vitamin D. I scored half of what a normal level is.Type of vitamin D should I take and how much (IU) a day?

5-10,000 iu D3/day: With levels that low I advise you start by taking 10,000 iu of D3 a day for 2 months, then reduce to 5-8000 iu/day. At some point you should recheck your levels. Optimal levels are 50-80. It is best to take Vitamin K along with D and make sure you are getting Vit A as these vitamins work synergistically. Avoid D2, which is dangerous!
