GDen, Abreu is not being very clear, here.
Surely she knows what any decent endocrinologist knows, namely that a vitamin D deficiency (meaning that your storage form of the vitamin is low) tends to CAUSE high levels of circulating vitamin D.
Why? Because when your storage form of vitamin D is too low, this somehow signals the PTH (parathyroid gland) to kick in, in order to INCREASE circulating vitamin D, even to an unhealthy level...to ensure the level of calcium in your bloodstream is adequate. Unfortunately, the PTH can get exhausted and the circulating D can leach calcium from bones to maintain calcium in the bloodstream.
When my daughter was diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency, she took vit D supplements and voila! The PTH settled down and the circulating vitamin D also settled down.
Ever since I read Abreu's research, years ago, I've wondered, "Does she not understand the vitamin D/PTH connection?"
Her advice to get tested sounds fine - but check the whole story: storage D, circulating D, and PTH levels.
