Vitamin D has consequences in many aspects of health and wellbeing.

Vitamin D Genetic Variation ReportThere are vitamin D receptors in every cell in every organ of our body. Contrary to popular belief, vitamin D isn’t just about bone health - it is actually a hormone that underpins the function of the heart, muscles, immune and neurological functions, as well as regulating inflammation. Low levels may increase the risk of many diseases.

Fitgenes has released a vitamin D personalised genetic variation report which is available via our practitioner network, as stand-alone vitamin D pathway profile for those patients who have an existing Health and Wellbeing profile report. 

The report examines the genes from the skin to the vitamin D receptors in the liver and kidneys and the consequences in many aspects of health and wellbeing.

Why is vitamin D important?

Whilst vitamin D is known mostly known for its role in bone health and how it helps the body absorb calcium, new research indicates there are other benefits.  Vitamin D also enhances our body's absorption of other vitamins and minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and phosphate.

Will I know if Im vitamin D deficient?

Mostly likely, no but there are a number of symptoms you can look out for. These include:

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle pain and weakness
  • Weight gain
  • Poor concentration
  • Restless sleep
  • Headaches

Why a genetic test for vitamin D?

Vitamin D pathway and genetic variation results offer a personalised understanding the biological process skin, of liver and kidneys.  Key benefits for identifying the activity of enzyme found in the skin, liver, kidneys include addressing health issues such as:

  • Asthma 
  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Blood sugar dysregulation
  • Cardiovascular disease risk 
  • Coeliac
  • Crohns disease 
  • Depression
  • Diabetes 
  • Muscle/bone pain 
  • Gastrointestinal disorders 
  • Gluten sensitivity
  • High stress
  • Hypertension
  • Infertility 
  • Irritable Bowel – IBD and IBS
  • Obesity 
  • Osteoarthritis 
  • Osteomalacia
  • Osteoporosis 
  • Poor dental or oral hygiene
  • Unresponsive to Vitamin D supplementation

Vitamin D Genetic Variation Results

The report summarises the genes tested to determine individual vitamin D genetic variation profiles, accompanied by interventions to address your variations. Your practitioner will discuss these with you.
