Purpose of running this test:

The Vitamin D Blood Spot test may be helpful to assess your need for supplemental vitamin D, which is a factor in blood sugar balance, as well as bone integrity. Lead or cadmium are especially damaging to bone. High levels of these toxic metals may impair bone health and suggest a greater need for bone support, including vitamin D.

If you live in an area with decreased sunshine, or suffer from seasonal affect disorder, you should also monitor your vitamin D levels. Individuals in low sunshine areas may experience Seasonal Affect Disorder (SAD). Supporting healthy levels of vitamin D along with low doses of SAM-e (S-adenosyl methionine) may help. Low levels of vitamin D have also been associated with certain health conditions including Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and colon cancer.

Result This table contains the rationale behind my suggestions. These suggestions are for your consideration. Defer your choices to your own health care practitioner, as always.
Imbalances in Vitamin D Consider Vita D-Light Spray for enhanced absorption through the mucous membranes of your mouth. In addition, Vita D-Light Spray contains a source of Rosemary and Sage that may help transport the vitamin into your cells. Also, you can consider Vitamin D softgels. Depending on your levels of calcium and magnesium on a HMT and UEE, you can consider Cal/Mag/VitD/VitK. For osteoporosis or osteopenia, consider low dose Bone Support nucleotide blend and Bone Support capsules. Do regular Bone Resorption Tests to be sure you are making a difference. If blood sugar imbalances are your issue, consider the FOK capsules. If you have seasonal affective disorder, consider SAM-e beginning in late October through March, or equivalent months in other regions. The use of a B complex such as Ultimate B is suggested when SAM-e support is being utilized.
