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

      Sorry I couldn't be of more help on this one.  That is very odd.  I never heard of it before either.  What's also odd, is that you have been waiting 2 weeks for blood work results.  Usually it's only a few days.

      It was such a long wait, was beginning to think they'd lost them, Im in the UK though so the NHS can take a while but usually a week at most. 

      got the results today and they said everything came back normal smile
