Background:

VDI’s Calcemia Panel is a three biomarker panel for the determination of root-cause of abnormal calcium levels. Unlike other similar panels, VDI offers gold-standard test for PTH and Vitamin D, that are not currently available through other laboratories.  VDI graphs the results in a visual way that helps for quick result interpretation.

VDI utilizes the gold-standard in Parathyroid Hormone testing: PTH 1-84. Unlike intact PTH (iPTH), VDI measures the entire PTH sequence (84 amino acids) with no fragment interference that is common with intact PTH; particularly the 7-34 fragment which often accumulates in renal disease.

Magnesium is a critical cofactor in hundreds of enzymatic processes in the body.  Normal magnesium levels ensure these process run efficiently and effectively.

VDI provides patient-specific dosing guidelines for Vitamin D and Magnesium when levels are insufficient.
