BACKGROUND Now emerging as an important risk factor for type 1 diabetes, vitamin D deficiency is also associated with obesity, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes and has been identified as a potential cardiometabolic risk factor. A simple, accurate screening test for 25-hydroxy vitamin D [25(OH)D] deficiency is needed. We developed a liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry assay for 25-hydroxy vitamin D(2) [25(OH)D(2)] and 25-hydroxy vitamin D(3) [25(OH)D(3)] in dried blood spots… CONTINUE READING
