Vitamin Profile Test Overview

Vitamin D plays an important role in calcium absorption and its deficiency can lead to abnormal bone development, bone weakness, and pain. It also helps maintain proper levels of calcium, phosphate, and parathyroid hormone. Parathyroid hormone (PTH) controls the level of calcium in blood. This test is often done to find the cause of hyper or hypocalcemia, osteoporosis, kidney stone and low vitamin D levels. The vitamin profile is undertaken to assess the status of other components like vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium which are often affected when vitamin D levels are abnormal.
