Vitamin D Test
Do You Think You Have Vitamin D Deficiency?
Are you experiencing general fatigue or muscle weakness? This could mean you suffer from vitamin D deficiency. Known as the sunshine vitamin, the UAE has a high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency as our lifestyle limits exposure to the sun. Apart from manifest complaints often the symptoms of vitamin D are subtle and difficult to determine. In case you’re curious whether your vitamin D levels are too low, a blood test (vitamin D test) is the only way to find out.
How Can You Test Your Blood?
At Beyond Nutrition in Dubai we conduct many vitamin D tests. The process is simple:
- Book an appointment at our Dubai JLT clinic and our licensed, experienced nurse will take a blood sample which will be sent to the lab the same day. The whole process will take around 10 minutes. We can also visit you at a location of your convenience (additional costs for home/office visits apply)
- The test result report with your vitamin D values will be shared with you by email after 1-2 working days
- If the test results show you have a vitamin D deficiency, it is highly recommended to expose your skin more to the sun. Bearing in mind skin risks and other limitations here in UAE, many opt for supplements or dietary adjustments. We can support you with separate nutrition consultations with our Dietitian to make the required changes to your diet and lifestyle
