Dr. Mercola has alerted us to problems in the measurement of Vitamin D testing from different labs. He also explains the process of measurement nicely. Worth looking at if you've been tested from Quest. Thanks to Dr. Powell for sending this alert on.http://v.mercola.com/blogs/public_blog/warning--are-your-vitamin-d-test… 

Thanks Jim, this is a fine kettle of fish for Quest labs.    My initial in range result 5/07 was from Quest.  My subsequent results from local hospital lab sent who knows where, first was just over 20 so very low 12/07 could have reflected my sporatic multivit ingestion due to nausea, repeat in 5/08 was WNL (within normal limits) after D3 loading doses but important for me is I do not know local hospital sends their specimens to for this test, I do know it was sent out.  So for me, this is really something important to be aware of, many thanks to your sharing this communication through the website.  I will ask more information with my next testing for D3.
