This study is one of 11 others in 12 Vitamin D articles in Bone Reports Journal – 2018
Based on 5,000,000 patients in Minnesota, Feb 2007-2017
44 degrees latitude = strong winters
Probably the Mayo Clinic has been encouraging patients to increase Vitamin D
- Increased use of D category listing has

Note: Study considers > 80 ng to be toxic, VitaminDWiki disagrees
- Sleep disorders cured by 60-80 ng of vitamin D and some B vitamins – March 2013

- Dr. who got patients to vitamin D level of 80 ng - went out of business, patients became too health
- Autoimmune diseases such as MS treated/reversed - 150 ng of vitamin D
In early 2000's vitamin-D deficiency was shown to be prevalent in several countries including the United States (US). Studies exploring the role of vitamin-D metabolism in diverse disease pathways generated an increased demand for vitamin-D supplementation and an immense public interest in measurement of vitamin-D metabolite levels. In this report, we review the role of vitamin-D metabolism in disease processes, clinical utility of measuring vitamin-D metabolites including 25-hydroxyvitamin-D (25(OH)D), 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin-D and 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin-D and discuss vitamin-D assay methodologies including immunoassays and liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) assays. We also provide examples of vitamin-D toxicity and insight into the trends in serum 25(OH)D levels in the US population based on 10 years of data from on serum 25(OH)D values from ~5,000,000 patients who were tested at the Mayo Medical Laboratories between February 2007-February 2017.
