Vitamin D testing is advised for
the people who are in a long term in a care facility if people are suffering
from vitamin D deficiency and past history of the low-trauma fracture, low
blood calcium or phosphate. The test which is used to measure accurately the concentration of vitamin D in our body is a 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood test.
For the healthy person, the level of 20 nanograms/milliliter to 50 ng/mL is
considered as suitable while less as 12 ng/mL indicates vitamin D deficiency.
Abnormal levels of vitamin D indicates bone disorders, nutrition problems,
organ damage, or other medical conditions. On 22 Dec 2019, researchers at Curtin
University tested the cells of 300 women undergoing fertility treatment. They
have found that those, who lacked sufficient level of vitamin-D, were much less
likely to develop a mature embryo; while those who had a sufficient level of
vitamin-D, were 3.5-times more likely to develop a mature embryo. Thereby,
Vitamin D is necessary for the development of the mature embryo of women.
The rising prevalence of vitamin D
deficiency owing to low intake of healthy food, changing lifestyle and poor
absorption of nutrients are contributing to the growth of the vitamin D testing
market. In addition, a high risk of developing vitamin deficiency includes
pregnant & breastfeeding, children under 5 years of age. Growing investment
and awareness by the government as well as by the private organization drives
the growth of the market. Approval and commercialization of the new test are
other factors enhancing the market. The growing advancement in the trend of
