Interpretive Data:
Measurement of "Vitamin D (1,25-dihydroxy)" is intended for workup of complex vitamin D issues in the assessment of hypercalcemia, assessment of vitamin D in patients with renal failure, and certain malignancies. This assay is NOT intended for routine assessment of Vitamin D nutritional status (see "Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy, Plasma").

This test is primarily indicated during patient evaluation for hypercalcemia and renal failure. A normal result does not rule out Vitamin D deficiency. The recommended test for diagnosing Vitamin D deficiency is Vitamin D 25-hydroxy.
