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

First of all, you need to call the doctor's office or get your hands on your lab test yourself to see WHICH vitamin D level he is talking about.

More About Vitamin D

There are two Vitamin D Tests:

1,25(OH)D AKA Di-hydroxyvitamin D


25(OH)D AKA Hydroxyvitamin D

Though they sound a LOT alike and are both called 'Vitamin D Levels', on this site, when I say "Vitamin D Level", I am ALWAYS talking about a 25 (OH)D Level.

A 25(OH) D level reflects your Vitamin D status, the other one does NOT. So, unless you are taking VERY high doses of Vitamin D- something like 15,000 IU's every day-


you are a lifeguard, then it is almost impossible that your 25(OH)D is high.

It's MORE likely that your doctor is talking about your 1,25(OH)D- and if THAT is high, then it may or may not mean anything at all.

It COULD mean that you have a parathyroid hormone disorder, or it could mean that you are PREGNANT!! It could also mean a few other things, but it DOES need to be followed up on because it may or may not be serious.

It's likely that your doctor will want to do a Calcium level and a parathyroid hormone level- if you're not pregnant that is! And if your parathyroid hormone and/or your calcium level is elevated, then you should go read the infomation on
because that website will likely give you more information than your endocrinologist.

But either way, please let us know what is going on with your levels and WHICH vitamin D level was high.

High vitamin d
by: JC

I had 25 hydroxy vitamin d blood test taken and the result was excessively high at 124.5 mnol/l. I do not take any supplements.
What can I do to correct this and bring it down to normal level?
