Major circulating D: 25-hydroxy-vitamin D is the major circulating form of Vit. D and the best test to check Vitamin D status. One can check the 1,25-hydroxy form- that's the active form but is not a reliable way to see if you have adequate levels of D. We get D primarily by being in the sun so most Americans become deficient in fall and winter. I advise 5000 iu of D3/day in fall/winter. See http://tinyurl.com/2chkcer ...Read more

Confused by research. Should patients with rosacea aim for a lower 25-hydroxy Vit D level? My level is now healthy. Will this exacerbate rosacea?
I say "No": There are a lot of rosacea patients and it's easy and cheap to test vitamin D levels. There are contradictory results about vitamin levels and the results of therapy, as I'd suspect if in fact there wasn't any real relationship. Further, rosacea is very manageable and vitamin D deficiency is really bad for the rest of your body. Ignore any "pop" source recommending you make yourself deficient. ...Read more
