Vitamin D 25-hydroxy test is conducted to detect the level of vitamin D present in your body. Vitamin D 25-hydroxy is a fat soluble vitamin, also known as calciferol. The reason why vitamin D 25-hydroxy test is taken is to know the exact levels of vitamin D so that the doctor can prescribe supplements according to the deficiency in the body.
People with a vitamin D deficiency become prone to heart diseases, high blood pressure, immune system disorders, different types of cancers (prostrate, breast and colon) and various infectious diseases. All these make it more important for any one to keep a check on their vitamin D levels.
Besides taking the test and consulting the doctor, one can easily keep their vitamin D level within the normal range by exposing oneself to 30 minutes of sunlight or by adding vitamin D-rich food items to their diet. Some vitamin D-rich food items are cod liver oil, tuna fish, yogurt, salmon, egg yolk, cereals and cheese. Keeping the vitamin D levels normal should be the prime aim to help the body function properly.
