-===== Abstract =====

-Recent research has implicated vitamin D deficiency (serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D <​50nmol/​L) with a number of chronic conditions including autoimmune conditions such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, psoriasis and chronic conditions such as osteoporosis,​ osteoarthritis,​ metabolic syndrome, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. It has been assumed that low levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-D) accurately indicate vitamin D storage and vitamin D receptor (VDR) mediated control of calcium metabolism and innate immunity. To evaluate this assumption, 25-D and 1,​25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25-D) levels were measured in 100 Canadian patients with these conditions. Additionally,​ other inflammatory markers (CK, CRP) were measured. Results showed a strong positive association between these autoimmune conditions and levels of 1,25-D >110 pmol/L. However, there was little association with vitamin D deficiency or the other inflammatory markers. These findings support the use of 1,25-D as a clinical marker in autoimmune conditions. It also suggests either a disruption of the controlling cytochrome P450 enzymes and/or reduced VDR responsiveness in these conditions. Finally, the results challenge the assumption that measurement of 25-D is an accurate index of vitamin D metabolism.
