What's tested?

Bone & Muscle

Bone & Muscle

Function

Your bone and muscle health is important for your strength, endurance and reduced risk of fracture or injury. Your hormones and diet are crucial for developing muscle strength and maintaining strong bones. Your bones and muscle require more care with age, since hormone production and nutrient absorption decreases in both men and women.

Biomarkers tested by myVitamin D

  • Vitamin D

Vitamin D is vital for your bone health, and regulates your body's use of calcium and phosphate. Low vitamin D levels can impact your brain, pancreas, insulin production, muscles, cardiovascular system, energy levels and immune system.

Frequently asked questions

Who should take this test?
We recommend this test for anyone living in northern Europe, where the sun does not provide the human body with all the vitamin D it needs. This is especially critical if you don't spend a lot of time outside in the fresh air, or if you live in a city with smoggy, sun-blocking coniditions. In winter, more than 80% of all northern Europeans are deficient in vitamin D. In the short terh, this can lead to low energy, bad mood, poor sleep, and frequent sickness due to a weak immune system. in the long term, it can lead to weak, even porous bones.
What symptoms does it address?
The most common indicators of vitamin D deficiency are:
- weak immune system / susceptibility to infection
- fatigue
- lack of motivation
- susceptibility to bone fracture
How does it work?
After your test kit arrives in the mail - around 2-3 days after completing your order - you'll take a few drops of blood from your fingertip and send us the sample in a postage pre-paid envelope. When our certified lab partner has completed the analysis - around 2 weeks - you'll receive an email with a link to a profile with your results. In your profile, you'll also find personalised nutrition and lifestyle recommendations.
What does it test?
We analyse your blood values and determine whether your values are in their optimal ranges. Having values in these optimal ranges is the key to reaching peak health and performance. If a value is not optimal, we provide concrete nutrition and lifestyle recommendations to get you where your body needs to be.
What kind of results and recommendations will I get?
Our science team - consisting of molecular biologists, nutrition scientists, and doctors - maintains world-class algorithms for nutrition and lifestyle recommendations based on your blood values. Our recommendation engine delivers you the specific recommendations needed to improve your blood values and, more importantly, your health.
Why should healthy people do a blood test?
Blood values are not only important for early detection and prevention of risk factors and health problems. They can also show unexpected and less obvious deficiencies affecting performance and quality of daily life. The human body changes as it ages - therefore regular testing of blood values is strongly recommended.
Why should I pay for a blood test if I can get one for free from the doctor?
Lykon is not a replacement for a visit to the doctor. The blood tests done by your doctor are an absolute necessity for acute problems. However, besides the clinical blood values analysed by your doctor, there are a multitude of other parameters which are crucial for your health but not tested by your doctor. For example, Lykon tests the concentration of vitamins and mineral levels in your blood. Our recommendations - developed by our health experts - can never take the place of a doctor's advice, but can help you improve for instance your vitamin levels. In addition, the doctor compares your blood values with norm values for the population as a whole. As much of the population suffers from various deficiencies, much of the prescriptive power of these tests is lost. Lykon works with medical studies to define the optimal values for you, to help you achieve your maximum. Blood tests with this scope are not offered free of charge by your doctor - of course, there are tests for a more limited range of blood values which are not supported by public health insurance, but are nonetheless available from your doctor.
