With the majority of our vitamin intake coming from food, it’s easy to assume that once you’re eating a healthy diet, you’re getting all the vitamins you need. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. In fact, vitamin deficiencies are quite common with almost one-third (31 percent) of the U.S. population at risk of at least one vitamin deficiency or anemia.

If you can’t make the visit to your local doctor, you can check your vitamin levels from the comfort of your own home with an at-home vitamin deficiency lab test.
LetsGetChecked’s range of at-home Vitamin Deficiency Tests identify key deficiencies in Vitamin B12, Vitamin D or both with online results in just 5 days.
