What is the vitamin d reference range in the blood?

32-130 ng/ml

Vitamin_b12
The normal range is 32-130 ng/ml for vitamin D-25-OH, the standard test for vitamin D levels. I believe tha levels of 40 are optimal for insulin resistance, but levels of 60 or above provide additional cancer protective effects!

Dr. Jay Rosenfeld answered:

Blood test showed I have very low vitamin d levels ?

Very common

Vitamin_d
It is very common to see low vitamin d levels in people these days. We make vitamin d by exposure to the sun and many people do not get enough sun exposure or should not because of skin cancer risk. People with low vitamin D can be at risk for chronic pain and may even be at risk for certain cancers. Talk to your doctor about taking a D supplement.

Dr. Randy S. Baker answered:

For vitamin d deficiencies, how do you know besides blood work?

Risk factors

156445591
You can not know for sure without blood work as the many symptoms of low D are non-specific, but it is pretty much certain that ALL Americans become deficient in the winter unless they supplement with D or live in the deep south & get mid-day sun without sunscreen. Since you live in FL, if you get unprotected mid-day sun year-round you might be OK without supplementing.

Could vitamin d supplements cause calcification of blood vessels?

Generally no

Healthy_diet
Make sure your calcium is normal. Replacement with 2000 units vitamin D3/day is usually healthy and without side effects. Make sure that your cholesterol, glucose and BP are normal if you have calcification of blood vessels.
