I am very positive about the diabetes test I bought from Homed-IQ! The actual testing process is easy and the doctor's result was clear. A great solution for me. I think everyone should have access to tests like the diabetes test, because it gives a lot of information. Homed-IQ makes that possible!

Overall experience was excellent. But the processing time was a bit long, maybe it was because I only ordered late Friday evening. The rest of the process went well.

The test was delivered within a day and I thought it was all easy to do, activating the test could perhaps be a little easier. At least I didn't have to go to the doctor or take a day off from work to get my blood checked or come back to a doctor's office for the results! It's quick and easy.

Shipping is very fast and the purchase process is well described in the supplied manual. It took me a maximum of five minutes to do. I knew it would be difficult for me to get to the doctor, especially because of COVID-19, so this was a lifesaver. It took 4 days to receive my results.

About the Test

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 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 several months that you have a deficiency. As their diet lacks animal products, 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. However, 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 is obtained 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 grains, and in milk products.

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

Vitamin B12
If you are deficient in Vitamin B12, you can 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 also have problems with their memory.

Vitamin D
A deficiency of Vitamin D can lead to osteoporosis, which increases the risk of bone 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 much of each vitamin do you need daily?

Vitamin B12

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

Vitamin D
With insufficient sunlight or in people with dark or tinted skin, lower amounts of Vitamin D is produced. This decreased  production cannot be fully compensated with a healthy diet. Therefore, it is recommended to take additional 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 age three  also need 10 micrograms of extra Vitamin D. From the age of 70, everyone, both men and women, needs 20 micrograms additional Vitamin D per day. The safe upper limit for Vitamin D 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? With Homed-IQ you can test 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 or make lifestyle changes that can bring your vitamin levels up.
