Hi JL,

Here's some more info that may be helpful for folks. The conversion factor for vitamin D3 units in ng/mL to nmol/L is roughly 2.6 so 125-150 nmol/L = 48-58 ng/mL.

hey NHE! :D

actually i think 2.6 is for the 1,25 metabolite.

for 25(OH)D3 it's 2.496 according to the site i tend to use,
http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/units/scale ... _data.html
so 40 works out to the 100 cut-off.

and yes, higher than 40 if you're going for 125-150 nmol/L

the upper cutoff of 250 nmol/L works out to 100 ng/mL

hope that helps, bill!

Thanks for checking on that. The web page you referenced was also incorrect. The 1,25 should be 2.400. The following figure is from a vitamin D review published in the American Journal of Physiology. I have added the molecular weights as well as the conversion factors.

cool! at least there's agreement on the 2.496 then :)

Hey
Just found something that might help your wife:

Inositol and B1 are what helps me the most...But I would definitely get checked for lyme disease with an LLMD, bartonella and borreliosis can definitely cause nerve pain and mimic MS...
