Description

This test is used as a second order test in the assessment of vitamin D status in the body, especially in patients who have kidney disease. If you want a general screening for vitamin D levels, a 25 hydroxy vitamin D level is more appropriate. 1,25 vitamin D is the most active form of vitamin D. It stimulates calcium absorption in the intestine and its production is tightly regulated through concentrations of serum calcium, phosphorus, and the parathyroid hormone

Test Instructions
