Vitamin D Therapy
Synonymous with sunlight, vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, responsible for helping the body absorb – and retain – phosphorus and calcium, which are both critical elements when building bone. Vitamin D can also control infections, reduce inflammation and promote a healthy immune system.
When experiencing vitamin D deficiency, you may have a number of symptoms. These include:
· Poor appetite
· Increased thirst and need for urination
· Back pain
· Brain fog
Vitamin D deficiency can also lead to loss of bone density, which can then develop into osteoporosis – a condition that causes bones to become weak and brittle, which can lead to fractures. Whilst exposing your skin to the sun is undeniably the best way for your body to absorb vitamin D, when you live in the UK – a country that has more rain than sunshine – this can be difficult to do.
This is where BioID Hormones can help. Specialists in producing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women going through the menopause and for middle-aged men, BioID Hormones also checks you for deficiencies – including vitamin D.
Benefits of Vitamin D
There are a whole host of benefits to vitamin D replacement therapy:
· Strengthens the immune system
· Boosts mood and general well-being
· Lowers the risk of rheumatoid arthritis
· Lowers blood pressure
· Aids weight loss
· Boosts energy levels
· Improves muscle function
Vitamin D replacement also keeps bones, teeth and muscles healthy. At BioID, we have a commitment to ensuring your body is functioning to the best of its ability and will ensure that you have the right amounts of vitamin D, through replacement therapy.
BioID Hormones will create a completely bespoke treatment plan that is tailored to your wellbeing and health. All you need to do is:
Fill out the symptom checker questionnaire. By including the symptoms you are experiencing, you will provide the doctors with some knowledge of the vitamins or hormones you may be lacking. You will then be able to speak to one of our BioID specialists to discuss your symptoms.
This is a 3-step process, which is easy and straightforward. Firstly, we will send a qualified phlebotomist out to your home to perform a venous blood draw. You will then have a prescriber-led consultation to discuss the blood results and formulate your tailored treatment plan.
Three months’ worth of your bespoke vitamins or hormones will then be delivered by us, directly to your door. There are a number of ways you can take them – either by using a gel or taking lozenges or capsules. The choice is up to you!
Once you’ve been taking your vitamins and hormones for a couple of months, you will then take a further blood test, with a follow up online consultation, to review your levels and ensure you are getting the best out of your treatment
Choosing a vitamin D replacement dose with BioID Hormones is a great choice! And, with all of our doctors registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.
What do our patients say?
Hear what one of our patients had to say about us:
Julie Green commented: “I suffered from menopause symptoms for a few years, including irritability, hot flushes, joint pain, and memory loss, to mention a few. I didn’t want to use HRT because I don’t believe there is a one-size-fits-all solution.
Dr. Kinsella saw me for a consultation, and following a simple blood test, he was able to figure out what I was missing. For the past three months, I’ve been taking a combination of oestrogen gel, progesterone, and vitamin D tablets, and I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my overall happiness and well-being; even my hot flushes are less frequent.
Dr. Kinsella and his colleagues are still on hand, keeping a careful eye on me and conducting regular blood tests to check my levels. I’m back to my old self, and I owe it to the team to thank them.”
