Vitamin D on blood test order

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi guys, sorry if this has been posted before but was just wondering if anyone knows what his means.

On my blood test order (suspected rheumatoid arthritis) the vitamin D test has extra writing with it, it goes : Vitamin D (25-Hydroxy) (GP) (considered at risk= Yes , High dose treatment cons = Yes) what on earth is this at risk/cons thing about? Never seen it before. I've already had the blood test, been waiting 2 weeks for results, they've said they might be available tomorrow so was curious as to what this means 

Thanks in advance! x
