Ik ben erg positief over de diabetes test die ik bij Homed-IQ heb gekocht! Het daadwerkelijke testproces is goed te doen en de uitslag van de dokter was duidelijk. Voor mij een absolute uitkomst. Ik vind dat iedereen toegang moet hebben tot testen zoals deze diabetes test, want dit geeft veel informatie. Homed-IQ maakt dat mogelijk!

De algehele ervaring was uitstekend. Maar de verwerkingstijd was iets te lang, maar dit kwam mogelijk omdat ik pas laat op vrijdagavond had besteld. De rest van het proces is naar behoren verlopen.

Ik heb een antistoffentest gedaan van HomedIQ. De test was gemakkelijk af te nemen, aangezien de instructies uitgebreid en gemakkelijk te begrijpen waren. De resultaten van de test werden binnen 72 uur geleverd zoals geadverteerd en de website was goed te navigeren. Ik zou Homediq van harte aanbevelen aan zowel vrienden als familie.

"De test werd binnen een dag geleverd en ik vond het eigenlijk allemaal wel gemakkelijk te doen, het activeren van de test zou misschien iets eenvoudiger kunnen. Ik hoefde in ieder geval niet naar de dokter of een dag vrij te nemen van mijn werk om mijn bloed te laten checken of terug te komen naar een dokterspraktijk voor de resultaten! Het is snel en eenvoudig.

Verzending is erg snel en het afname proces is prima beschreven in de meegeleverde handleiding. Het kostte me maximaal vijf minuten om te doen. Ik wist dat het moeilijk voor me zou zijn om naar de dokter te gaan, vooral vanwege COVID-19, dus dit was een redder in nood. Het kostte 4 dagen om mijn resultaten te ontvangen.

 What is the Ultimate Vitamin Test?

This test measures the Vitamin B12, Vitamin D and Folic Acid levels in your blood. Based on the test results, it can be determined whether you have a vitamin deficiency or not. The test is a simple blood test that you can take yourself at home. Your sample will then be examined by a certified laboratory and you will receive the results within a few days. It couldn’t be simpler.

Vitamin B12
About ten percent of the Western people have a Vitamin B12 deficiency. This vitamin is only found in animal products, such as milk, meat, fish and eggs. Because the body stores B12, you often only notice after a few months or even a year that you have a deficiency. It is recommended for vegans to take Vitamin B12 supplements.

Vitamin D
Vitamin D is one of the few vitamins that your body can produce itself. But it needs sufficient sunlight for that. No less than two-thirds of the amount of Vitamin D you need daily is produced in this way. The other third we get through food. Vitamin D is only found in animal products: especially in fatty fish, meat and eggs.

Folic Acid
Folic Acid is a vitamin that your body cannot produce itself. By eating a varied diet you should get enough Folic Acid, but according to research, about 20% of the Western population has a Folic Acid deficiency. The vitamin is found in green vegetables, fruits, whole grain products and in milk (products).

How do you notice if you are deficient in Vitamin B12, D or Folic Acid?

Vitamin B12
If you are deficient in Vitamin B12, you will develop a form of anemia with symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pain and a lack of appetite. Elderly people with a Vitamin B12 deficiency may have problems with their memory.

Vitamin D
A deficiency of Vitamin D can lead to osteoporosis, which increases the risk of fractures in later life, especially in women. With a severe Vitamin D deficiency, you can also suffer from weak muscles and muscle cramps.

Folic Acid
If you develop a Folic Acid deficiency, you can develop unpleasant symptoms, including a decreased appetite, weight loss and/or fatigue.

How many vitamins do you need daily?

Vitamin B12
Adults need 2.8 micrograms of Vitamin B12 per day. Studies have so far shown no signs of harm to the body when taking more than the prescribed amount of Vitamin B12.

Vitamin D
With insufficient sunlight or people with dark or tinted skin, less Vitamin D is produced. This lower production cannot be fully compensated with a healthy diet. Therefore, it is recommended to take extra Vitamin D in the form of supplements.

Women over 50, as well as younger dark-skinned women and pregnant women, need 10 micrograms extra Vitamin D (in the form of supplements) daily. This does not apply to men unless they have dark skin or do not often go outside. Small children up to three and three also need 10 micrograms of extra Vitamin D. From the age of 70, everyone, both men and women, needs 20 micrograms extra Vitamin D per day. The safe upper limit has been set at 100 micrograms per day.

Folic Acid
Adults need 300 micrograms of Folic Acid per day. Pregnant women are advised to take 400 micrograms every day, regardless of the amount of Folic Acid they take in with their diet.

Not sure whether you are getting enough of one or more of these vitamins? At Homed-IQ you can get tested whether you have enough Vitamin D, B12 and Folic Acid in your blood. Based on the test result, you can choose to take certain supplements that will bring your vitamin levels up.

Nowadays it’s possible to have elevated levels if you use vitamin D supplementation or eat fortified foods that have high levels of vitamin D.
