However, many recent studies have show that level to be the AVERAGE level for 1,25(OH)2D. Additionally, high levels of
1,25(OH)2D can be indicative of
a lack of
calcium, which is more common than most people think. One study from 2007 concluded that only 40% of the people in the US are getting the recommended amount of calcium. A deficiency of calcium can result in increased levels of 1,25(OH)2D. Decreased calcium absorption can also result from a digestive disorder.
