Employee Vitamin D Testing
Medically validated vitamin D testing and awareness
UK-Wide Employee Vitamin D Testing
Workplace Vitamin D Testing is ideal in the autumn and winter months when most UK staff will be vitamin D deficient.
A lack of Vitamin D can cause bones to become soft and weak as the minerals needed to keep them strong cannot get to the bone. This can lead to bone deformities and a condition called osteomalacia, which causes bone pain, muscle weakness and tenderness.
In addition to bone health, low Vitamin D levels can also affect energy levels and performance. It can also impact the immune system, which could have an affect on general employee sickness and absence.
How does Vitamin D Testing work?
Vitamin D Testing is simple to carry out. Our practitioner uses a small finger-prick device to draw a droplet of blood from the attendee’s finger.
This blood is then applied to a sample strip and analysed using a specialised vitamin D analysis device.
After a few minutes, the results are available, so the practitioner can determine the attendee’s vitamin D levels.
Throughout the session, the practitioner will discuss the benefits of vitamin D, and will provide attendee’s advice based on their individual scores.
