I saw my GP today. He was quite happy to give me a blood test request form that says that my thyroid, Vit B12 and folate should be tested. But even though my most recent Vit D test results - 3 years ago - were low, said he wouldn’t ask for Vit D test for me because GPs are being asked not to measure Vit D now.
He said that we are all advised to take Vit D supplements from October - April.
I can’t understand why this would be. Medics seem - with each passing year - to understand more and more that Vitamin D is not just an important marker of health because deficiency causes symptoms but vital as preventative of some diseases, too.
