Regarding Vitamin D levels...

Regarding Vitamin D levels, what does 250H mean?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes, my endrocronoligist and he had advised me to stop taking Vitamin D. He wants me tested again in four months. This will be my third testing.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He already knows my entire history primarily: hyperparathyroidism and two cases of Cushing's Disease.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
