Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy
If testosterone levels are expected to be >1500, it is best that you order a panel that includes Testosterone LC/MS-MS as the testosterone test included in this panel has a cutoff of 1500.
Estimated turnaround for results is 5 business days. If confirmation testing is required, the estimated time may be extended. Patient Instructions:
Patient should fast for 12 hours preceding collection of specimen. If using a testosterone cream please be sure you have not rubbed any into the antecubital area of your arm for the last 24 hours as it can give elevated results. Some tests in this panel may exhibit interference when sample is collected from a person who is consuming a supplement with a high dose of biotin (also termed as vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H or coenzyme R). It is recommended to stop biotin consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of specimen. Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy is not the same as calcitriol or 1,25 dihydroxy. Calcitriol/Vitamin D, 1,25 Dihydroxy must be ordered separately.Categories: Hormones and Metabolism
