The blood levels of the active metabolites of vitamin D3 25-hydroxycholecalciferol [25(OH)D3], 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol [1,25(OH)2D3], and 24,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol [24,25(OH)2D3] were determined in 27 patients suffering from arthrosis of the knee, including 4 patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. The blood level of 24,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol was found to be significantly lower in patients with gonarthrosis than in patients with coxarthrosis. With the exclusion of the diabetic patients, the mean value for this metabolite was lower than in the coxarthrosis group, but the difference was not significant statistically.
