I asked a doctor at Kaiser Permanente (not my primary-care MD, but a specialist I had a quarterly appointment with) to run a Vitamin D test "like I had in December, because I’ve been supplementing and want to know if I should cut back my dosage now".
The numbers came back today, and I couldn’t make head or tail of them because there were 3 results, not 1, and they were all in pg/ml, not ng/ml! I finally figured out that this doctor had ordered 1,25-hydroxy Vitamin D, not 25-hydroxy. :(

So, while I wait to see if this doc will go ahead and issue orders for the test I wanted in the first place, is there anything at all useful to be gleaned from the 1,25-hydroxy results?

6/18: 1,25-hydroxy D3 was 45 pg/mL; 1,25-hydroxy D2 was <8 pg/ml (I know D2 is much less relevant)

I really want to know where I’m at, because in 12/2017, I was only at 27 ng/ml after about 2 months at 4000 IU daily, so I jumped up to 10,000 IU daily, and need to know whether to dial the dosage back down.

Yep, H2o, 50.7 ng/mL is a valid result. You might add another 1000 iu Vit D to your regimen to ooch the result to 60 ng/mL.

Hopscotch, you just moved up the list of my favorite posters here when you used the word "ooch".  I took a quick look, and yes, you’re in Texas.  I spent my first 68 years there.  Thanks for my morning smile.

Thanks for the replies Hopscotch and Boo.  And I will make it a point to include "ooch" in my vocabulary from now on.

"Ooch" usually comes with a smile :)
