Vitamin D and Inflammation 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. Chronic inflammation can cause cellular damage and, if enough damage occurs, may increase the risk of various diseases. Inflammation can also lead to damage in the circulatory system, like your arteries, and increase the risk of certain circulatory diseases.

C Reactive Protein, or CRP, is a protein that increases in the blood with inflammation. Highly Sensitive CRP, or hsCRP, is a way to detect even small elevations of this protein as as indicator of low levels of inflammation in the body.

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 an important role in modulating inflammation in the body. 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. ).

It is important to understand that a single hsCRP level is not always indicative of your baseline level of inflammation. Isolated elevated levels of hsCRP can be the result of normal changes in your body, such as a recent illness, infection, or trauma. An elevated hsCRP level should always be confirmed with additional testing to determine if chronic inflammation is present.

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, you may want to consider adjusting your diet and supplement regimen to include foods high in natural anti-inflammatory nutrients, such as Vitamin D. Additionally, you may want to consider removing pro-inflammatory foods from your diet, such as processed foods, red meat, and refined sugars.

Lifestyle changes, such as increasing exercise and improving sleep habits, are often helpful in alleviating persistent inflammation within your body.
