What do we measure?

We use liquid chromatography mass spectrometry method to measure the Vitamin D in your blood. We measure Vitamin D2 and D3. We report the Total and D2 and D3 results with a clear interpretation.


Results are sent to the email address provided on the consent form. If you would prefer, we can post results to you.

Our result form has a clear interpretation of your Vitamin D level. Note that our results are expressed as nmol/L. See our Questions and Answers page for how to convert nmol/L to ng/mL which are the older units still used in the US and some laboratories in the UK.


We have a questions and answers area on our website where many of the recent queries from the public are answered. See here.....

We have some Internet links on our "Further Info" page to sites that look in more details at the issues around Vitamin D, focusing in particular on the United Kingdom. See here......
