Well in most circumstances the 25 D3 level is an accurate representation of the vitamin D levels in the body. However, researchers up in the NY medical schools found a patient with a defect in 1-alphahydroxylase


1-alpha hydroxylase is an enzyme in the kidney that converts 25 D3 vitamin D to 1,25 D3 Vitamin D (calcitriol). Calcitriol is what your body uses, the other vitamin D, the 25 D3 level is termed pre-vitamin D.

EDIT: And now I'm waiting for my calcitriol levels to be reported.
