ABOUT THIS TEST

 

25-Hydroxyvitamin D is the major circulating form of vitamin D. It occurs in two forms: vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) obtained through vegetable sources and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), obtained from animal diet sources and through sun exposure, and is the precursor of the active form (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D).

 

25-Hydroxyvitamin D, known for its role in bone health and calcium absorption, also appears to affect immune function, neurodegenerative and cardiovascular issues, and other conditions.

Because of its long half-life, measurement of total 25-Hydroxyvitamin D (D2 plus D3) provides the best assessment of vitamin D status and includes vitamin D derived from diet, supplements and exposure to UVB light, such as sunlight.

 

Vitamin D is best known for its role in calcium and bone metabolism, but emerging research indicates that low levels of vitamin D may be associated with increased risk of some cancers, type 2 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, depression, Alzheimer's disease, infections, preeclampsia, cesarean deliveries and neurocognitive dysfunction.

Vitamin D regulates the expression of a vast array of genes in tissues including immune cells, the vasculature, muscle and reproductive organs. Vitamin D insufficiency is common and deficiency can have adverse health effects at any stage of life.
