Hi, I posted a question a few days ago about blood tests, but have been researching a bit more and have a couple more questions if anyone can help please?
My vitamin d result (nhs pin prick) is 28.8nmol/l and I'm about to contact doc with results, but am unsure about whether there is more than one type of calcium test, or if I ask for electrolytes is this correct please? Also, I've read that there can be 2 reasons vitamin d is low, not taking in enough and a problem with a parathyroid gland. Has anyone requested both calcium and parathyroid test, or is it a case of having the first and if there is a prob, being offered the second?
I had a hair test a while ago and calcium was the only mineral to be normal and the rest all read very low, so am concerned about taking the vitamin d until I get it sorted.
Many thanks again...
