How to determine the vitamin D level?

Wie kann man den Vitamin D Spiegel bestimmen?

1. how to determine the vitamin D level?

The vitamin D level can be determined by a blood test at the doctor's office. This is often determined when a vitamin D deficiency is suspected. Insufficient vitamin D formation is caused by a reduction in sunlight exposure, especially in the winter months. In this case a supplementation of vitamin D3 can be very helpful.

    2. What is the daily requirement of vitamin D?

    The German Society for Nutrition recommends a daily amount of vitamin D3 of 4000 IU for an adult person. However, it should always be noted that height, gender and body weight play a major role in this. The age is especially important, because in children and infants the daily content is significantly lower. In pregnant and breastfeeding women, the daily amount of vitamin D3 increases significantly again.

    3. who is at risk for vitamin D deficiency?

    Certain groups of people are at risk for vitamin D3 deficiency:

    • Elderly people
    • Pregnant women
    • People with chronic kidney disease
    • People with dark complexion
    • Women after menopause

    4. vitamin D3 in the form of food supplements

    Vitamin D3 comes in the form of capsules and tablets. Both forms are easy to use and enter the circulation quickly. However, vitamin D3 tablets are sold in pharmacies, which in many cases contain artificial additives or are manufactured abroad. Vitamin D3 capsules often contain only the active ingredient in a vegetable cellulose shell and can therefore be produced without fillers. In general, it should always be ensured that the product has been produced in Germany to guarantee a consistently high preparation quality.
