Home testing kit service Everlywell offers a variety of affordable medical tests that make it easier than ever for consumers to get quick results without ever having to step into a doctor's office or pharmacy. The company's 'Vitamin D Test' is just one of many kits that are offered through its website.
Once consumers select the kit online, it will be sent to their door with all the necessary testing materials. For the Vitamin D Kit, users will produce a sample of blood using the finger prick method, and send it back to Everlywell with the prepaid shipping label they received with their order. Once the sample makes it way back, Everlywell has an independent board-certified physician review the results. Results can be accessed online, where the company details what the test means and highlights what the user's next steps should be.
As Vitamin D deficiency can cause a range of serious symptoms like depression, muscle pain, and thinning hair, the preventative testing kits help consumers take the steps they need to improve their health before serious issues develop.
