17306 25-dehydroxyvitamin D
serum 25-OH vitamin D concentrations provide a good index of circulating
vitamin D activity in patients not suffering from renal disease. Lower
than normal 25-OH vitamin D levels can result from a dietary deficiency,
poor absorption of the vitamin or impaired metabolism of the sterol in
the liver. A 25-OH vitamin D deficiency can lead to bone diseases such
as rickets and osteomalacia.

the relatively small elevations of CRP that are associated with
increased cardiovascular risk.
