25-Hydroxy Vitamin-D Test

What is the 25-Hydroxy Vitamin D Test?

Vitamin D is one of the essential vitamins. It is necessary for our body. It helps in absorbing calcium and maintaining the health of strong bones. Our body can naturally produce vitamin D when our skin comes in contact with the sun. Other common sources of vitamin D include eggs, fish, and even fortified dietary products. 

However, before your body starts to use vitamin D, it needs to undergo various processes. The liver is the first center where it is transformed. In the liver, vitamin D is converted into calcidiol or 25-hydroxyvitamin D. 

This test is also known as the calcium 25-hydroxycholecalciferol or 25-OH vitamin D test. It is an essential indicator of bone malformation (rickets), bone weakness (osteoporosis), and osteomalacia.

How to Interpret the 25-Hydroxy Vitamin D Test?

The results of the vitamin D test vary depending upon the gender, age testing method, and the lab that you are opting for the test. 

The level of vitamin D is measured by taking into account the reference range. 

If the level of vitamin D is low, it is due to either decreased absorption of vitamin D from the intestine or less exposure to the sun. While the higher level would be due to excess intake of vitamin D supplements.
