Investigation of disorders of bone/mineral metabolism.
1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D, the active metabolite of vitamin D is formed in the kidney and in some pathological conditions, also in other cells. Measurement may be useful in renal disease, in primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism and hypoparathyroidism and in distinguishing the various types of vitamin D resistant states from vitamin D deficiency. Assays may also assist in investigation of malignancy-associated hypercalcaemia and sarcoidosis.
