Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin also known as Ergocalciferol (vitamin D2), cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3). It is important in calcium absorption and vitamin D test is used to monitor individuals following a gastric bypass surgery to prevent deficiencies.
It is used to determine the effectiveness of treatment following supplementation for vitamin D, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium.
It is also used in patients with disease affecting fat absorption like Crohn's disease and cystic fibrosis. It is also used for screening high-risk patients for deficiencies.
Lastly, it is used to diagnose and monitor patients with parathyroid gland disorders to rule out vitamin D deficiency or excesses as a bone malfunction or calcium metabolism.

Test Result & Interpretation

  • Vitamin D toxicity is a rare condition, so the focus is more on the deficiency and different laboratories use different reference range. Vitamin D levels of about 20 – 30n. Vitamin D deficiency in the blood is defined as 25hydroxyvitamin D < 20ng/ml (50nmol/l) whereas vitamin D insufficiency is levels 21-29ng/ml(52.5-72.5nmol/l).
  • Low level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D following test may indicate that an individual is not getting enough exposure to sunlight or less dietary vitamin D, also some drugs especially those used in the treatment of seizure can cause reduced production in the liver. Increased levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D indicates excess drug supplementation. Low levels of 1,25dihydroxyvitamin D is mostly seen in patients with kidney failure.
  • High levels of 1,25dihydroxyvitamin D occurs in cases of parathyroid hormone or in disease conditions such as sarcoidosis or lymphoma.
