DA vitamin D test is used to screen for or monitor bone disorders and check vitamin D levels in people with chronic illnesses such as asthma, psoriasis, and certain autoimmune diseases. Vitamin D is a nutrient that is essential for healthy bones and teeth. There are two forms of vitamin D that are important for nutrition: vitamin D2 and vitamin D3. Vitamin D2 mainly comes from fortified foods like breakfast cereals, milk, and other dairy items. Vitamin D3 is made by your own body when you are exposed to sunlight. In your bloodstream, vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 are changed into 25 hydroxyvitamin D, also known as 25(OH)D.
The Diabetes Screen blood test does NOT require fasting.
