Update to Vitamin D Testing

Effective February 28th, 2023, Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy Level (25-OH Vitamin D) [LAB535] will be replaced by 25-Hydroxyvitamin Level D2 and D3 [LAB1230925]. Send out testing for 25-Hydroxyvitamin D2 and D3, Serum [LAB1230428] to Mayo will be discontinued. The testing methodology will change from an immunoassay to liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry.

The new test will include concentrations for

  • 25-hydroxyvitamin D2
  • 25-hydroxyvitamin D3
  • 25-hydroxyvitamin D Total

Additionally, reference values have been updated to reflect current guidelines (see reference below).

The test will be performed at Corewell Health Toxicology Lab Monday through Friday. For patients ≤5 years of age a modified assay is performed once a week on Friday to eliminate interference due to the C-3 epimer of 25-hydroxyvitamin D3.
