What do my Vitamin D test results mean?

by Jenny
(Phoenix, AZ)

I've been diagnosed with extremely deficient Vitamin D levels over the past and was given a prescription of 50,000 mg/once weekly supplements to take. I've been out of them for about 6 months and just switched doctors and received the following test results:

25-H D2 23.0 ng/mL
25-H D3 9.1 ng/mL
25-Hydroxy D Total 32.0 ng/mL

I had a pretty thorough blood workup and have other test results if there's something I'm missing. I live in Phoenix area, am 51, menopausal, and overweight (but not obese) with many joint issues and constant pain from these issues. I'm getting mixed signals about whether I have the optimal Vitamin D levels and would love another opinion.

Yes, I read through the entire article, but I am confused about whether I should be looking at the 25-H D2, 25-H D3, or the 25-Hydroxy D Total numbers to see whether I'm deficient. From what I've read, I'm deficient (not optimal) no matter what, but I was hoping to get some clarification on that as well as any thoughts about whether my symptoms might be caused by the deficiency. I'm also super deficient in B12 and take Nascobal weekly but after reading the information, I'm wondering if I should ask for a gluten intolerance?

Thanks so much!
