Hi.  Yes!  As I recall, it was a Nephrologist who first ran the Vit D blood test.  She said that this is not Vit D exactly like is in milk but is actually referred to as Vitamin D2.  If I remember correctly, she told me that it would be referred that any renal patient be on the higher end of "normal" which would be around 50.  The range is 30-50.  Mine came back at 4!  I was prescribed the 50,000 units three times a week for a year.  The Nephrologist also informed me that this test is only recently being conducted and that most general practitioners are not really doing it yet.

Hope you find that helpful.
