ANY TIME LAB offers affordable Vitamin D Testing. Vitamin D is a steroid hormone involved in the active intestinal absorption of calcium and in the regulation of its homeostasis. Vitamin D has two isomers: Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3. Vitamin D2 is obtained from dairy products whereas Vitamin D3 is produced in the skin after exposure to ultraviolet light. In the liver, Vitamin D is hydroxyiated at its carbon 25 to form 25-OH Vitamin D. This metabolite is the predominant circulating form of Vitamin D and is considered to be an accurate indicator of the general  Vitamin D Status of an individual. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to many diseases including osteoporosis, rickets, osteomalacia, cancers and cardiovascular diseases. The sum of the concentrations of 25-OH Vitamin D2 and 15-OH Vitamin D3, in serum or plasma is referred to as "Total 25-OH Vitamin D". Accurate monitoring of total 25-OH Vitamin D level is critical in clinical settings. Vitamin D deficient patients who are prescribed a daily Vitamin D supplement should regularly monitor their serum or plasma Vitamin D Levels in order to reach an optimal level and prevent their 25-OH Vitamin D concentrations from reaching excessive levels that are considered toxic.
