My 7yo finally got her Vit  D levels back...they are in "normal" range, but I want to know if they are in optimal range and/or is ok to have no Vit D2?

 

 

VITAMIN D, 25-HYDROXY, D3   34 VITAMIN D, 25-HYDROXY, D2   <4 25-HYDROXYVITAMIN D 30 - 100 ng/mL 34

thanks!

vit d25-ohd2 is an indicator of sources of vit d such as diet or supplementation .

Is she on vit d supplements?

 

Is your 7 yo celiac? How long has she been gluten free?

I agree- Vitamin D has a large "normal" range- 35-100. 

My doctor agrees that higher normal levels, 70-99, provide more cold and flu protection. Here on the East Coast its getting to be 

vitamin D season- the days are short and my doctor wants me to increase my 2500u/day! It looks like your in Cali- you could

either supplement her D and go back to your doctor for another level in 2 months, or you could make sure she gets 20 minutes

of "sun time" a day- no sunscreen- if she's not so fair that she burns! 

Good luck!
