We need your help! Please take this 8 question survey on vitamin D testing.
We are surveying about vitamin D testing.
The test to see how much vitamin D you're getting is called a 25(OH)D test. Sometimes this is just called a vitamin D test. This test can tell you if you're sufficient in vitamin D, deficient in vitamin D, or getting too much.
We're trying to better understand how the public feels about and uses vitamin D tests, so we can better provide information about testing and see if we can provide services that we don't currently offer.
We will randomly select five survey entries to win a free vitamin D t-shirt.
