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. 

Vitamins are essential life nutrients. Depletion of these essential nutrients and the impurity of food can result in a variety of illnesses. The vitamin profile is intended to assess the levels of vitamins B, D, and folic acid in the body, and identify any deficiencies.

The development of healthy red blood cells requires folic acid, vitamin B12, and vitamin D for strong bones and a healthy nervous system. When experiencing indications of vitamin deficiency, including pale skin, weakness, soreness in the joints, weak muscles, and palpitations, this profile is advised. It is also suggested as a standard investigative procedure.

Test Overview

Vitamin D is crucial for the absorption of calcium, and a lack of it can cause discomfort, weak bones, and irregular bone growth. Additionally, it aids in keeping parathyroid hormone, calcium, and phosphate levels in check. PTH, a parathyroid hormone, regulates blood calcium levels. The vitamin profile test is frequently carried out to determine the cause of osteoporosis, kidney stones, hyper- or hypocalcemia, and low vitamin D levels. The purpose of the vitamin profile is to evaluate the condition of other nutrients, such as vitamin B12, calcium, and magnesium, which are frequently impacted when levels are aberrant.
