Vitamin D is a fat-soluble precursor of the steroid hormone calcitriol that is essential for bone health and mineral metabolism.

To become biologically active Vitamin D is modified to 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25 OH Vitamin D3 or Calcidiol) and 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D (Calcitriol). A total Vitamin D assay measures the level of Vitamin D in both forms.

Serum 25 OH Vitamin D3 (calcidiol) is the most stable circulating form of vitamin D and a low blood level suggests that a person is not getting enough exposure to sunlight or enough dietary vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency, if severe, can lead to rickets (children) or osteomalacia (adults) and is linked to hyperparathyroidism, osteoporosis, and muscle weakness/pain. Prolonged vitamin D insufficiency leads to increased risk for multiple chronic conditions, including anemia, cardiometabolic and autoimmune diseases, depression, neurodegenerative/cognitive and sleep disorders, and some cancers.

1,25-Dihydroxy Vitamin D3 (Calcitriol) regulates the expression of hundreds of genes and triggers signaling cascades in many tissues and organs. A low level of 1,25-Dihydroxy Vitamin D3 can be seen in kidney disease and is one of the earliest changes to occur in persons with early kidney failure. A high level of 1,25-Dihydroxy Vitamin D indicates the presence of excess parathyroid hormone since PTH is essential for vitamin D activation.

Vitamin D screening is recommended for high risk groups such as patients with or at risk for osteoporosis, patients with rickets/osteomalacia, chronic kidney disease and malabsorption syndrome.
