Blood Test For Vitamin Deficiency

Ensuring that your child gets enough nutrition from their diet is easier said than done. Not many children enjoy eating their vegetables, so it’s not uncommon for them to miss out on some key vitamins and minerals. It’s been estimated that around 16% of all children are deficient in vitamin D, which can prevent them from building strong bones and even lead to rickets.

However, there are ways that a child’s vitamin levels can be checked — and that’s with a blood test.

If you are worried your child may be suffering from a vitamin deficiency, it’s important to see a doctor first so they can evaluate your child’s health and determine the best course of action.
