The new Woman & Health vitamin D-check: health guarantee for cold seasons
Too much UV-radiation is unhealthy: the ageing process is accelerated and skin cancer becomes more likely. But the sun is not so bad after all: UVB-radiation boosts vitamin D production in the body. More often than not a strong vitamin D insufficiency is not discovered at all. Due to our place on the globe we have relatively little sun, and so all of us usually suffer from what is called a vitamin D winter. Especially nursing mothers should be aware of this, as vitamin D is essential for the future well-being of her child. A low vitamin D level in the blood can lead to the following conditions:
- high blood pressure
- heart and circulation diseases
- breast- and colon cancer
- chronic infectious diseases
- autoimmune diseases (multiple sclerosis, diabetes)
- loss of muscle tissue
- increased mortality
The new vitamin D-check at Woman & Health assists you in attaining a stable vitamin D level throughout the entire year. The check is quickly performed via a simple blood test and a deficiency is easily treated with vitamin D caps or drops.
Private medical insurance companies often cover the costs for this test.
The team at Woman & Health is glad to counsel you further.
