The patient age range was start from (5 month up to 62 years). Each sample was examined by the technique of (ECL) which is electrochemiluminescence (Cobas e 411 analyzer, Roche Company, Germany). The study shown that there are 83%patients were having abnormal level; while 17%patient was normal or sufficient. 82% of patients had a low level of vitamin D, only 1% of patients had a very high level of vitamin (toxic).There are 63% out of 82% had insufficiency and abider 19% had deficiency. The normal level of Vitamin D must be acquire any number between ( 30 – 80 ) ng/mL is and essential to keep a healthy body between (10-30) ng/mL is consider insufficiency, below (10) ng/mL is deficient. The increase of Vitamin D level over (80) ng/mL is poison. The deficiency of Vitamin D level detailed the highest rate (6) cases in age (20 – 29), and age (40-49) years. Both ages in (1 day-9) years and (60-and over) does not having any deficiency, whereas a highest rate (18) cases in age (20-29) years was insufficiency in vitamin D level, one cases in age (60 and over) was the lowest.
