Serum Vitamin D3 Test
Are there different tests for Vitamin D & Vitamin D3? Specifically: Vitamin D3 (25 OH D) and 25 (OH) Vitamin D?
Yes: When there is a reason to test, testing for 25-OH-VitD2 level and for 25-OH-VitD3 level, plus adding the results to get the total vitamin D level, can help the doctor check the source of the vitamin deficiency and the treatment progress. There is debate over when it would be needed to do these tests. Some doctors feel that giving people more vitamin D would avoid deficiencies and avoid lab tests. ...Read more

Am I iron deficient? levels on 2 iron tablets /day
Need to evaluate: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your results are consistent with iron deficiency. Do you have heavy periods? Do you eat a normal diet? Have you been evaluated for celiac disease? If you are not able to absorb oral iron, it may be given intravenously. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

6,000 IU Vit D3 daily = reading of 100 (norm high @ Lab Corp). Serum Calcium is 11.1 w/ 10.3 high norm. Take 200 mg Calcium daily. Age 65 Concern?
I believe you are: taking too much vitamin D3. For general purposes, including osteoporosis prevention, doses of 1000-1500 IU daily are usually recommended. Even though your reading is "high normal", it could still be contributing to your higher serum calcium level. Prefer to get calcium from the diet rather than through supplements. Review with your doctor. Stay well:) ...Read more
I like to know what albumin serum 4.4 calcium serum 9.8 creatinine serum and posassium serum 3.8 protein total serum 6.9 and sodium serum 142
Depends on dose: This depends on the dose of the injection. In some studies people have been given as much as 600, 000 iu in a single dose- in that situation you only need a single dose. While injections are safe ; effective, oral forms work well too. For levels so low i would advise 20, 000 iu of d3/day for a month, then 10, 000 iu/day, and recheck levels in 2-3 months, but an injection could raise levels sooner. ...Read more

Low vitamin D 15, high calcium 10.6, then 10.2, PTH 67, endocrinologist told me to take vit D3 4,000 iu daily, but also added calcium, why?
Consider hyperpara : These labs are borderline for hyperparathyroidism. The low vitamin D may be pushing the PTH up, but that doesn’t explain the borderline elevated calcium. You should repeat your vitamin D and be retested in a few months. This might bring clarity to your diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
