Vitamin D is important in maintaining proper bone health, mental health, heart health, oral health, digestive health, cardiovascular health, immune health, and more. Many people,in the U.S. and around the world, are vitamin D deficient. Unfortunately, millions of people have jobs inside and cannot get adequate exposure to natural sunlight. It’s difficult to receive sufficient levels of vitamin D through diet alone.

So, if you’re interested in testing your level of vitamin D, please know that there is only one accurate test for your vitamin D status called the 25-hydroxyvitamin D test. This test can also be called a 25(OH)D test. This will measure the circulating form of vitamin D that the liver generates then becomes activated in the kidneys. Many doctors order the wrong test and it is important that they code correctly to the insurance company as well. The correct billing code for vitamin C deficiency is 268.9.

60 to 40 ng/mL is the recommended healthy zone for 25-vitamin D levels. The maximum upper limit of 25-vitamin D levels is 100 ng/mL, and the minimum healthy level of 25-vitamin D is 30 ng/mL. Knowing you’re 25-vitamin D level is a good barometer for your vitamin D status.
