Inflammation and Vitamin D Test

Typically, Inflammation is a healthy immune response in your body to injury or trauma. The pain, swelling, and redness are all signs that your body is responding to that trauma, sending extra blood to the immediate area and starting the healing process.

This type of healthy inflammation is normally referred to as "acute" inflammation. Your body becomes injured, healthy inflammation occurs, and then disperses when the area has healed.

Chronic inflammation is a completely different story. Instead, this kind of inflammation can be widespread, low-level, and persistent. It can damage cells, which increases risk of various diseases including cardiovascular disease, cancer, dementia, and more. Inflammation can also be a sign of damage in arteries or organs.

Beyond that, chronic inflammation is also believed to contribute to other serious illnesses like:

  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Dementia
  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Lupus
  • Crohn's Disease
  • Cancer

You may be wondering why we're including Vitamin D as part of this panel. Though Vitamin D is an extremely valuable marker on it's own, it also plays into inflammation which is why it's so important to measure in tandem. Frequently, Vitamin D deficiencies can drive up your levels of hs-CRP and correcting that deficiency can help calm down inflammation in your body.

Who Should take this test?

You should take a test if you're experiencing any of the symptoms listed below, have been living a high-stress lifestyle, or are over the age of 50.

Some early symptoms of chronic inflammation:

  • Ongoing, Irritating Pain in Joints or Muscles
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Blood Sugar
  • Ulcers
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Constant Fatigue or Lethargy
  • Skin Problems
  • Bloodshot Eyes

Vitamin D is widely known to be essential for strong bones as it helps the body use calcium, but if you are deficient, there are a wide variety of other symptoms one can experience:

  • Excessive Sweating
  • Noticeable and Unexpected Weakness
  • Broken Bones
  • Chronic Pain
  • Depression
  • Excessive Fatigue

What will my results tell me?

Your results will contain your personal levels of both hs-CRP (inflammation marker) and Vitamin D and whether they are low, normal, or high as compared to someone who shares a similar demographic profile with you (age, gender, etc. ).

What guidance will I get along with my results?

EverlyWell will provide tailored advice about what to do next.

If you show elevated levels of inflammation, we may suggest adjusting your diet and supplement regimen such as taking more Vitamin D, eating more anti-inflammatory foods and steering away from pro-inflammatory foods, especially processed foods, red meats, and simple sugar.

We might also suggest other lifestyle changes that are often helpful in alleviating persistent inflammation within your body.
