Guys please help me,

Is a vitamin D3 test the same as a Vitamin D total test?

Because Doctor prescribed Vitamin B12, Viramin D3, Calcium, CBC.
In local lab asking 2000 for all test, but in pharmeasy app Full Body check up is for only 1300 but in that fully body checkup they not mentioned D3.
They mention Vitamin D Total,

Is a vitamin D3 test the same as a Vitamin D total test?

Can i go for Online test Or Local.

D2+D3 = D total. Go for online lab test

bhai jo doctor bol rahe hain wahi karni hai. D2 n D3 se D3 ko superior mana jata hai. But if doctor bol rahe D3 test karne then it would be wiser to ask the prescribing doctor whether to opt for D total test instead of D3. 🙂🙂🙂

Vitamin D, Vitamin D total, 25-Hydroxy Vitamin D Test. You will see different names in different apps but the test is same.

If you want only 4 tests then from Pharmeasy, all 4 tests effectively at Rs.398 (CBC Rs.299 + Calcium Rs.99 + Vitamin D + B12 combo Rs.699 (100% cashback coupon VITCOMBO Rs.699))

Comprehensive full body checkup with vitamin D and B12 Rs.1399 + Calcium Rs.99 (Rs.400 cashback coupon CAMP400) @MJ1986

You can get either of those Vit D or D3….won’t make any difference.

Generally the hospital labs are more accurate if you want to decide based on that but that doesn’t mean that others are not good.
You can go for the online one.

I told him to go for Aarogyam C test by thyrocare
Not expensive and covers many tests

D total one will not be exactly same as D3
It will not give explicit count of D3

Yes right but for practical purpose that won’t matter unless some specific issue.

For the testing they actually test 25 (OH) D which is the active form in blood. Both D2 and D3 get converted to 25 (OH) D.
So it won’t make any difference.

For the supplementation, D3 is the preferred one mostly.
