What's a deficiency?
Approximately 35% of adults in the United States have some form of vitamin D deficiency.¹ Vitamin D isn't naturally found in many foods and it can be hard to get an adequate amount of time in the sun with a busy lifestyle. This can lead to a lower-than-normal level of vitamin D, which can impact bone health, brain function, immune system, and muscles. Taking a vitamin D test can help you understand your own levels of vitamin D and if you should be proactive about increasing your vitamin D production.
Test yourself conveniently and talk to a healthcare provider
Taking a vitamin D test can help you be proactive to ensure your body has the optimal levels needed. Get your test to collect your sample at home and review results right from your Cue Health App. Plus, it's easier than ever to discuss your results with on-demand telehealth visits through your App.
What can you do?
The recommended daily amount of vitamin D is 15 micrograms (600 International Units) for adults up to age 70.² Diet changes and supplements are easy ways to increase your levels of vitamin D. If you have a vitamin D deficiency, speak to your healthcare provider about how much vitamin D you should take daily to bring you to optimal levels.
Vitamin D helps keep your bones healthy and is important for immune health, muscle function, and brain cell activity. This at-home self-test checks your levels of vitamin D to detect a deficiency. Order your test, send in your sample, and you'll be able to review your results securely in the Cue Health App within a few days.

About this test
What this test measures
We all know that calcium helps our bones stay healthy. But did you know that our cells can't absorb it without vitamin D? Additionally, the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and neuroprotective properties of vitamin D helps us maintain healthy immunity, muscle function, and brain cell activity.
This at-home test measures your vitamin D levels to help you detect a deficiency. Most often caused by a lack of sunlight or diet, vitamin D deficiencies may also be a symptom of another disorder.
Who should take this test
A vitamin D deficiency is a common problem that can lead to bone disorders and other medical complications. You may want to consider monitoring your vitamin D levels if you are at-risk of developing a deficiency because you:
- Are age 65 or older. As you age, your skin is less able to make vitamin D from sunlight.
- Rarely expose your skin to sunlight
- Have a vitamin D-deficient diet
- Are living with a condition that makes it difficult to absorb nutrients in food
- Take medicines that affect your vitamin D levels
Common signs of vitamin D deficiency are symptoms related to your bones, which include:
- Bone pain
- Muscle weakness or aches
- Soft, deformed, or broken bones
You must be age 18 or older to take this test. Due to state restrictions, this test is not available to residents of New York.

Will my insurance cover the cost of the test?
Cue tests are not currently covered by insurance, but we are actively working with health insurance companies to get coverage for Cue Health solutions. However, many Cue Care tests are FSA/HSA eligible, which means that your health benefits may be able to cover Cue. We recommend connecting with your insurance provider directly to inquire more about their policies and your plan. We work hard to keep our pricing accessible, and in most cases, the price of a Cue Care test is similar to the out-of-pocket costs for testing in a clinical setting.
