High Vitamin D Levels..
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen

Hi Sue,

That's great that you are questioning your Vitamin D results. It certainly sounds suspicious. If you are not getting any sunlight exposure (and you wouldn't have received any Vitamin D all winter anyway living in North Dakota), and you are only taking 1400 IU's per day, it is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY that your Vitamin D Level is 96 ng/ml.

So, the first thing that I would do is to check with the office again and ask which test they did. There are TWO Vitamin D Tests.

1) 1-25 OH D or DiHydroxyVitamin D Level
2) 25 OH D or Hydroxyvitamin D Level

You really want to know your 25OHD or Hydroxyvitamin D level and they should be reading it to you in nanograms per millileter or ng/ml.

If your 25OHD level REALLY is 96 ng/ml, then insist on getting your Vitamin D Level Checked again because I suspect that it is wrong.

Most disorders DECREASE Vitamin D Levels- particularly Fat Malabsorption problems and Parathyroid Issues. As far as I know, there are no disorders that will raise your 25OHD levels.

But if they are reading you your 1-25 OHD or Dihydroxy Level, then THAT Level is high and could be due to some other disorder like Parathyroid issues... OR Vitamin D Deficiency!!

As far as your infertility goes, there are LOTS of WELL RESEARCHED AND EFFECTIVE methods to get your Fertility Back that your doctor likely doesn't know about!!

These include:

1) Avoidance of common food allergens
2) Adrenal Hormone Balance
3) Restoring the 'Rhythm' of your ovulation
4) Replacement of Simple Vitamin Deficiencies
5) Restoring your proper intestinal flora

The laboratory testing that I use, that doctors are just not familiar with, are powerful tools that can actually show you in black and white the underlying cause of your infertility and give you a road map of what to correct!

Different Vitamin D levels
by: Karen

It is important to know if the test you had was for D,25-OHD or D,1,25 OHD because there is a difference!

According to Lab Corp in San Diego, where I have mine done, the normal range for D,25OHD is 32-100 ng/ml. But for the D,1,25 OHD it is 21-65 ng/ml.

So if it was the D,1,25 OHD that you had done then that sounds pretty high.

Mine went to 82 and the doctor told me to cut back. My D,25 OHD has gone as high as 95 and I was told to cut back too.

I am recovering from a serious case of Osteomalacia so I am tested weekly. I have found that it is best to have both the D tests done, since one can be higher and one lower.
