Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. It is also produced endogenously when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike the skin and trigger vitamin D synthesis.
Vitamin B-12 is an important vitamin for many bodily functions, such as brain health, blood cell production, and proper nerve functioning. People who are obese or eat a lot of meat also tend to have higher-than-normal levels. High levels of vitamin B-12 can be a sign of liver disease, certain types of leukemia, or diabetes.
Ionized Calcium Ca+
Ionized calcium levels give more information about active, ionized calcium. It may be important to know your ionized calcium levels if you have abnormal levels of proteins, such as albumin, or immunoglobins in your blood. If the balance between bound calcium and free calcium isn’t normal, it’s important to find out why. Free calcium and bound calcium each typically make up half of your body’s total calcium. An imbalance can be a sign of a major health issue.
