Major circulating D: 25-hydroxy-vitamin D is the major circulating form of Vit. D and the best test to check Vitamin D status.

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

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.

A single appropriate dose of vitamin d should be taken daily and calcium should be taken in divided doses 2-3 times daily. ...Read more
