Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy

Item Catalog Number: LC081950

Recent research has shown that vitamin D is important to every cell and tissue throughout the body. From proper immune function and bone density to heart health and mood disorders, vitamin D is critical for optimal health.

You should know your Vitamin D blood level. Life Extension offers a reliable vitamin D blood test at a fraction of what most commercial blood labs charge. Optimal blood levels of vitamin D are often far greater than the standard reference range. The only way to achieve an optimal level is through proper supplementation.

Fasting is not required for this blood test. Take all medications as prescribed, but do not take your supplements the morning of the test.

Test Changed My Life

By cddallas

Comments about Life Extension Blood Labs Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy Blood Test:

Since losing my spleen in a car accident in 1983, not a year has gone by that I have not needed antibiotics at least once, typically twice, during the flu season for upper respiratory distress of one kind or another. A year or more ago I got a call from Life Extension and was told that they were worried their members weren't getting enough Vitamin D. "Well, I take your vitamin 'Mix,'" I replied. Still, I was told about this Vitamin D blood test and how easy it would be to find out what my blood level was. I bought the test online, printed out the test sheet, drove to a lab about two miles away, and had the blood drawn. Labcorp sent it to a local hospital for analysis and three weeks later I got the results -- and another call from Life Extension. Was I ever deficient! I started taking the correct amount for my body and weight and for the first time since 1983 did not need antibiotics this past flu season -- nor was I sick! I highly encourage everyone to get this test done right away -- as soon as possible before the flu season -- and to retest if you gain or lose weight. Lastly, Vitamin D is needed all year long, not just in the wintertime. If you're not out in the sun much in the summer, you likely still need to supplement. A Vitamin D test for both seasons might even be a good idea!

      Comments about Life Extension Blood Labs Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy Blood Test:

      I'm of south Asian origin and has dark skin. I live in a cold region of the US, so most of the year my body is fully covered. I've been taking 5000 IU of vitamin D3 daily for about an year and wanted to see if my body has enough vitamin D. I try to stay away from doctors as much as possible. As such, I don't have a regular doctor I go to. Even if I did, he or she wouldn't order a vitamin D test just because I wanted to. So when I found that LEF offers a vitamin D test , I was excited. The whole process was very easy and fast. I ordered the test online on a Monday, went to the lab, just five minutes away from my house on Tuesday without an appointment, and received the results on Wednesday by email. I was gratified to see that my D3 level was well above the minimum level recommended by LEF. I'm planning to take advantage of the sale prices and do the Male Panel, which includes the D3 test, later in the summer to see, among other things, what effect the exposure to sunlight has on my vitamin D level .

        Comments about Life Extension Blood Labs Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy Blood Test:

        I purchased a series of test from LE and boy am I glad I did. One of them was for Vitamin D. Turns out I was woefully low. In a few weeks, I was feeling so much better. Had my wife tested and she had same problem. Everyone should have this test as it is cheap and easy and can help you to try and prevent so many diseases associated with low D. Couldn't get my Dr. to run test but he sure wanted the results. I walk 3 miles a day and now I don't ache while walking. I feel much younger.

          LEF tests through LabCorp are a cost effective way to monitor blood levels of essentials for which insurance does not pay. LEF order to LabCorp arrived in 2 days. Lab just 3 miles from home. LabCorp results were received through LEF in less than 36 hours from blood draw! That's speedy!!!
          Thanks LEF for making this possible.

          Excellent way to test for vitamin D

          By Marie Flowers

          from Vinton, VA

          About Me Natural health activist

          Pros

          • Take charge of health

          Cons

          • Can't use lab range

          Best Uses

          • To optimize vit D levels

          Comments about Life Extension Blood Labs Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy Blood Test:

          Since insurance may not pay for repeated testings to get vitamin D in optimal ranges, LEF's test is an inexpensive way to do repeat testing. I used the recommendations of the Vitamin D Foundation and the information provided by Dr. Joseph Mercola, along with my Integrative health doctor to strive for an optimal range. Unfortunately the lab's range is still lagging behind the science, though the testing results are accurate.

          Comments about Life Extension Blood Labs Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy Blood Test:

          I was tested with a 28 ng/ml at my doctor's office. No mention was made to be concerned. I increased my Vitamin intake to 7500 daily for over six months and then had the test taken through L.E.F. My vitamin D increased to 61 ng/ml. I feel empowered that I was able to correct a deficiency before it became a real problem.
