Which Vitamin D Level is Too High?
by: Kerri Knox, RN-The Immune Health Queen!

So, look at your lab test again and find out WHICH vitamin D level is too high.

More About Vitamin D

I will almost GUARANTEE that the level that you are calling your "Vitamin D Level" is really your

1,25(OH)D level or Dihydroxyvitamin D Level

This is not really a "Vitamin D Level" that has anything to do with your supplement intake or the amount of sun that you are getting.

While they look almost the same, the level that has to do with vitamin D supplements is:

25(OH)D level or Hydroxyvitamin D level

And while your 1,25(OH)D level IS high and you SHOULD make sure that your doctor follows up on that (it may or may not put you at risk for anything if it is high- it can be high is some diseases, but also high in healthy states such as pregnancy!), you should ALSO make sure that your doctor actually does get the REAL vitamin D level in the form of a:

25(OH)D or Hydroxyvitamin D level.

You could be, and probably are, VERY vitamin D deficient DESPITE a high 1,25(OH)D level.

WRONG - It's not always LOW D that's the problem.

Check for Hyper-Parathyroid Disease.

- Your blood calcium levels may be elevated as well because hyper parathyroidism leeches the calcium from bones and adds to your blood stream.

- So, YES, go see an Endocrinologist - and DO NOT take the advice to supplement with vitamin d because "your actual D level is low... blah, blah"- UNLESS your doctor tells you that you don't have hyper parathyroid disease.

Good luck.

Too LOW, not too high
by: Kerri Knox, RN - The Immune Queen

Your level is NOT TOO HIGH, it is actually too LOW. You are not reading the UNITS, and indeed, if you were measuring it in ng/ml, your level would be too high. But your measurement is in nmol/L, a completely different scale. It's like the difference between miles/hr and km/min! You'd be going SUPER fast if you were going 10 km/min, but not so fast if you were going 10 miles/hour, right? So, check the UNITS and compare those with the optimal units.

So, please look to the right of this page and get my Fact Sheet on Vitamin D to see what level your Vitamin D should be at in nmol/l.
