Frequently Asked Question

About the Vitamin D Test

This is a blood test that checks the level of Vitamin D in your body.

Vitamin D is important to the body to help control the amount of calcium and phosphate. This is important to maintain healthy bones, teeth and muscles.

Vitamin D deficiencies can lead to bone diseases such as rickets in children and osteoporosis in adults.

After the test:

If the test shows that you are low on Vitamin D this can usually be resolved with adjustments to your diet and supplements.

Most of our Vitamin D is received from the sun, however this is not readily available for much of the year. The NHS recommend taking supplements of 10 micrograms from October to March.

It is also available in oily fish, red meat, liver, egg yolks and fortified foods.

The blood test looks for only Vitamin D bio-marker, results are available in 2-3 working days.

What can I expect to happen?

During your test, you’ll be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire to  make sure you are well enough for the test. The main part of your screen will be a simple venous blood test (where blood is drawn from a vein in your arm using a needle). This should only take a minute or two to complete.  

Do I need to prepare?

There is no need to fast (go without food or drinks) for this test.

We do suggest keeping your arm warm, as being cold can sometimes make it harder to draw your blood, and stay well hydrated.

If blood tests make you anxious, let your nurse know at the start of your appointment. They will do their best to make the experience as stress-free as possibl

Age limit

Superdrug blood tests are available for patients aged 16 years and older.
