Our new Vitamin D Genetic Test from Pharmasan Labs’ Genetic division is a simple to use state of the art test that determines your genetic susceptibility to Vitamin D deficiency.
Vitamin D is critical for good health and disease prevention but vitamin D deficiency is common. The Centers for Disease Control estimate that 32% of U.S. children and adults are vitamin D deficient while other sources cite rates as high as 85%. There are approximately 30,000 genes in the human body and vitamin D influences nearly 3,000 of them including genes affecting the body’s ability to fight infection, chronic inflammation and certain cancers. Low levels of vitamin D have been linked to cardiac disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, age-related macular degeneration (the world’s leading cause of blindness), anxiety, depression, seasonal affective disorder, cognitive performance issues, osteoporosis, infertility, miscarriage, and premature aging.
Researchers have found an association between levels of vitamin D and variants in genes including VDR, CYP27B1 and GC.
This profile tests for VDR, CYP27B1 and GC.
