Preparation

Fast for 12 hours (no food or drink, except water) before sample collection.

Vitamin D deficiency may increase the risk of a host of chronic diseases such as heart disease and some cancers. It is possible to improve your vitamin D levels through nutrition, increased sunlight exposure, and supplements.1

Susceptible to Deficiency

Certain groups of people may not be getting enough or have trouble absorbing B-12 including older adults, those who have had gastrointestinal surgery (such as weight loss surgery), or those with digestive disorders (such as celiac disease or Crohn’s disease).2
