    Learning Objectives:

    • Recognize the physiological differences between 25-OH-vitamin D and 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D including the medical indications for ordering each.
    • Identify the clinical scenarios where precise 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D measurement supports both diagnosis and treatment.
    • Understand the value in serial measurement of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D status in sarcoidosis.
    • Participants will also recognize the emerging literature  which supports the use of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D analogues and thus the value in precise measurements to guide therapy.
