Personalabs.com Provides Online Testing for Vitamin D Deficiency in Adults and Children


Research released by the American Academy of Pediatrics has shown a shocking increase in Vitamin D deficiency affecting the under 21 age group. It states that 70% of US children are lacking in this essential vitamin.

Fort Myers, FL, August 06, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Vitamin D deficiency can cause a wide variety of medical conditions in children and adults including rickets (bone softening & deformity) in children, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis in adults. It has been linked to breast and prostate cancer as well as auto-immune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease.

The increase in Vitamin D deficiency has been attributed to lack of sunlight due to people spending too much time indoors, the use of sunscreen when outside and dietary changes such as substituting soft drinks for milk.

You and your children can find out your Vitamin D levels at Personalabs.com. Enter discount code VTD2009 to receive a 5% discount on every test. Once you know your Vitamin D level, you can discuss the results with your healthcare provider and take simple steps to increase your Vitamin D levels.
