Actually on the topic of Vitamin D I just learned that these days, with the rapid gowrth of science and technology, performing a vitamin D test can be done yourself. It is not necessary to visit the doctor anymore to get this test done. There are blood test spot kits available and you can take help of these kits to do it all by yourself. The finger is punctured at a spot to obtain a few drops of blood on a unique kind of blotting paper. The result is not difficult to comprehend. I took the home test and found I did have a minor deficiency.
