Brief Description: The Vitamin D & Inflammation Lab Test is a combined diagnostic panel that assesses two critical markers in the blood: Vitamin D levels and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP). This comprehensive test provides insights into a person's Vitamin D status and the presence of systemic inflammation.

Collection Method: Blood Draw

Specimen Type: Serum

Test Preparation: Fasting preferred, but not required.

When and Why the Vitamin D & Inflammation Lab Test May Be Ordered

Timing of the Test: The Vitamin D & Inflammation Lab Test may be ordered when healthcare providers want to evaluate both Vitamin D levels and assess inflammation in the body.

Reasons for Ordering the Test:

Vitamin D Deficiency Assessment: This test is commonly ordered when there is suspicion of Vitamin D deficiency, which can occur due to limited sun exposure, dietary deficiencies, malabsorption disorders, or certain medical conditions.

Osteoporosis and Bone Health: Vitamin D plays a crucial role in calcium absorption and bone health. The test can help in the assessment of Vitamin D levels for individuals at risk of osteoporosis or bone-related issues.

Inflammatory Conditions: Healthcare providers may order this test to assess inflammation levels in individuals with chronic inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or inflammatory bowel disease.

Cardiovascular Risk Assessment: Elevated hs-CRP levels are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. This test can be part of a cardiovascular risk assessment for certain individuals.

Monitoring Chronic Illness: For patients with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes or autoimmune disorders, the test helps healthcare providers monitor inflammation and Vitamin D status, which can impact disease management.

What the Vitamin D & Inflammation Lab Test Checks For

The Vitamin D & Inflammation Lab Test evaluates two specific markers:

QuestAssureD 25-Hydroxyvitamin D Total with D2 and D3: This component measures the total Vitamin D concentration in the blood, including both Vitamin D2 and D3 forms. Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption, bone health, immune function, and overall well-being.

High-Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP): hs-CRP is a sensitive marker of inflammation in the body. Elevated levels of hs-CRP may indicate ongoing inflammation and an increased risk of various health conditions, including cardiovascular disease.

How Health Care Providers Use the Results of the Vitamin D & Inflammation Lab Test

Healthcare providers use the results of the Vitamin D & Inflammation Lab Test to:

Assess Vitamin D Status: By measuring Vitamin D levels, healthcare providers can determine if a patient has a deficiency or insufficiency and make recommendations for appropriate supplementation or lifestyle changes.

Evaluate Inflammatory State: Elevated hs-CRP levels suggest systemic inflammation, which may be linked to various chronic diseases. Providers use this information to assess overall health and guide treatment decisions.

Guide Treatment: Depending on the results, healthcare providers may recommend Vitamin D supplementation, dietary modifications, or anti-inflammatory interventions to manage underlying conditions.

Monitor Chronic Diseases: For patients with chronic illnesses, tracking Vitamin D levels and inflammation markers can aid in disease management and help healthcare providers adjust treatment plans as needed.

Assess Cardiovascular Risk: Elevated hs-CRP levels can indicate an increased risk of cardiovascular events. Providers may use this information to initiate preventive measures or further cardiovascular assessments.

In summary, the Vitamin D & Inflammation Lab Test is a valuable tool for assessing both Vitamin D status and inflammation levels in the body. It aids healthcare providers in diagnosing deficiencies, identifying inflammation-associated risks, and guiding treatment strategies to improve overall health and well-being.

We advise having your results reviewed by a licensed medical healthcare professional for proper interpretation of your results.
