Tampa, Fla. (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
Haneke Design, a leading mobile applications developer, today announced the debut of the Vitamin-D Pro mobile application built for Norman Parathyroid Center. By analyzing the results of a patient’s vitamin D-25 level, blood calcium, and parathyroid hormone (PTH) tests as well as bone density scans, Vitamin-D Pro offers patients and their doctors a better understanding of the root causes of the deficiency. Doctors can use this information to make more accurate diagnoses, and patients can better understand the dietary and behavioral changes they’ll need to make along with following their physician’s prescribed therapy to rebalance their levels of vitamin D and calcium.
“We were really excited to be working with Dr. Norman and his team on another powerful mobile app that helps people take charge of and better manage their health,” said Jody Haneke, president of Haneke Design. “Vitamin-D Pro offers analysis and tracking tools, a learning library with easy to read articles written by medical experts, suggestions for what to do given your personal results, and links to resources and products for low vitamin D that can be incredibly beneficial to both patients and their health care providers.”
Vitamin D plays a huge role in our overall health, yet nearly 70% of Americans have low levels of the vitamin, which can lead to many other health issues. Low vitamin D is the number one diagnosed medical condition for the past five years. Many health issues—even many cancers—can be attributed to chronically low vitamin D levels.
“Although most people have low vitamin D because of lack of sun exposure, some people have other medical problems that caused the low vitamin D and thus the treatment would be very different,” said James (Jim) Norman, MD, FACS, FACE, head of the Norman Parathyroid Center at Tampa General Hospital and a world renowned expert on calcium metabolism, vitamin D, and hyperparathyroidism. “Therefore, it’s important to learn WHY you have low vitamin D levels before you simply head over to the drug store and start taking supplements you purchased off the shelf.”
The Vitamin-D Pro mobile application:
The Vitamin D-Pro app costs $1.99 per download and is available for iPhone and iPad users as well as all Android devices.
“Our team of experts designed this app because most doctors diagnose vitamin D problems incorrectly,” Dr. Norman continued. “Often patients are put on vitamin D without ever being tested for other problems that may be present and life threatening. Vitamin-D Pro is an easy to use, highly informative medical app that can make you feel better and potentially save your life.”
