Vitamin D Dihydroxy Lab results are really high
 
Hi,
I had some labs done a couple weeks ago and I wanted to get some opinions:

Vitamins D 1,25 Dihydroxy = 130.00 range is (25.1-66.1)
Back in July it was 84.

Several months ago my Vit D 25OH was deficient and that level is slowly rising due to me taking 1000IU every other day. I have issues with malabsorption.

But the high Vit D 1, 25 Dihydroxy is bothering me. The doc says not to worry but I wanted some feedback from you all.

Thanks.

The 1,25 DI is what is available for your body to use, so I wonder why your doc wants you to keep taking high doses. Something in your body makes avery good use of the 25 di-oh .

Are you sure those labs are correct? :confused:

I was deficient due to malabsorption, my Vit D level was 10. I took a prescription Vit D (50,000 IU) twice a week and after four months my level was 50.

You say you're taking just ([I]one thousand[/I] IU) every other day?

Now, if you're taking a prescription ([I]one hundred thousand[/I] IU) every other day - wow, that could cause Hypervitaminosis D. It can damage your bones and kidneys.
