Actually on the topic of Vitamin D I just discovered that these days, with the development in scientific research and technology, performing a vitamin D test can be done yourself. It is not necessary to see a physician anymore to get this test done. There are blood test spot kits available and you can take help of these kits to do it all by yourself. The finger is punctured at a spot to obtain some blood on a different kind of blotting paper. The result is not difficult to comprehend. I took the home test and found I did have a minor deficiency.
