Kidney stones in vitamin d

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones in vitamin d


Avatar n tn They do cause kidney stones in very high mega doses. With vitamin D, you can sit by a sunny window a number of times a week which will help the body get vitamin D with less supplementation.
Avatar f tn Vitamin A (not betacarotene) promotes healthy functioning of the urinary tract, if you're deficient in it sometimes kidney stones can form. You’ll find vitamin A in most good general multiple vitamin and mineral supple- ments. Magnesium helps the body dissolve calcium if you’re deficient in this mineral it can cause calcium to accumulate into deposits, which increases your risk of forming kidney stones.
Avatar f tn I'm not a doctor, but do have too much experience with kidney stones. For me, I'd get pings and pangs in my kidney as well as microhematuria (blood you cannot see by eye) in my urine when I have stones. I've also had the flank pain you describe .. for me it's been in the lower back. I hope with lots of water your stones move out for you uneveventfully. Please keep in touch. From what I've read stones <5.0mm usually move out on their own with a high % of non-complications, etc.
541196 tn?1293556536 Is it possible to have my problem with Vitamin D be not completely caused by my thryroid? Maybe malabsorbtion or kidney problems? I have had two tests show I have protien in urine. I have flank pain periodically. I have high blood pressure, diabetes, high triglycerides and low HDL, and swelling of ankles and hands. I often have stomach aches with multiple loose stools a day...
Avatar f tn As it is a fat soluble vitamin, hypervitaminosis can occur, the symptoms of which are, vomiting, polyuria (frequent urination), weight loss, poor appetite, constipation, weakness, heart rhythm abnormalities and kidney stones Treatment of vitamin D toxicity includes stopping vitamin D supplements and restricting calcium intake, as well as taking medication. But it is unlikely in your case, as you have a deficiency of the vitamin. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Other websites say Vitamin D increases calcium in the blood and the symptoms I'm having could be related to too much calcium absorption due to the increased Vitamin D. Should I be concerned? Will these symptoms gradually go away?
Avatar f tn Keep in mind that milk, and many other products also contain vitamin D. Too much vitamin D can cause kidney stones, which is almost as painful as having a baby. Otherwise... it's up to you...

Avatar n tn I have kidney stones. I was told that the kidney stones are a result of a high para thyoid level . and a low Vitamin D level. Has anyone ever gone through this ? It's all brand new information to me -- and I don't know what to think.
167 tn?1374177417 the baby does not receive enough vitamin d or vitamin C through breast milk. dd LOVES her vitamins. we put it in one of her feeds, but she would just as happily lap it up off the dropper. then again, she also loves tylenol.
Avatar f tn pong, I take vitamin d to strengthen bones because of my history with kidney stones and taking a calcium supplement isn't good for me because one of the main things that make up my kidney stones is calcium. As a result, I can't take calcium supplements and don't. I guess to answer your question, one would have to know how your body handles calcium. Does it throw the excess of it off and out of your system or does that excess help make stones in your body.
Avatar m tn Hi there, Kidney problems and kidney stones can lead to erectile dysfunction. Only a complete medical evaluation can confirm whether this erectile dysfunction is due to kidney stones or not. Drink plenty of water and take adequate treatment for your kidney stones.

535882 tn?1396580285 supplementation over that may cause a risk for toxicity (weak muscles, weak bones, excessive bleeding, and kidney stones). Vitamin D is available through our foods - Fortified milk, breakfast cereals, egg yolks, fatty fish, fish oils, and the sun, as you mentioned.
Avatar f tn You should not go over that amount in supplementation, 2000 IU is the tolerable upper intake level for adults and can be at risk for toxicity (weak muscles, weak bones, excessive bleeding, and kidney stones) with higher amounts. Vitamin D is available through our foods - Fortified milk, breakfast cereals, egg yolks, fatty fish, fish oils, and the sun.
Avatar f tn 2 level of vitamin D which from what my doctor said is quite low. I live in Florida and spend what I feel is a normal amount of time daily in the sunshine. When I asked him what would cause this he said that it happens as people get older (I am showing no signs of menopause). The lab results say that 35 - 100 was normal. The Dr. put me on 8,000 "whatever they are called" of Vitamin D3 a day and calcium w/D and to retest in 3 months.
3177740 tn?1374678957 has any of your MS specialists said what is a recommended level of Vitamin D and B12? My first Vitamin D test I had my levels were at 24..........My B12 was 400 something.
Avatar m tn My employer's wellness program is now offering free vitamin D testing to employees, and I want to make sure the test is accurate. Should I discontinue taking vitamin D supplements in preparation for a vitamin D test? If so, how long before the test?
Avatar n tn supplementation over that may cause a risk for toxicity (weak muscles, weak bones, excessive bleeding, and kidney stones). Vitamin D is available through our foods - Fortified milk, breakfast cereals, egg yolks, fatty fish, and fish oils. Sit at a window with the sun shining in for about 1/2 hour (few times a week) and that will help you get enough Vitamin D. You did not mention your Calcium levels and suggest getting it checked, too.
173939 tn?1333221450 Even though not medically confirmed, we believe there is heredetary vitamin D and calcium malabsorption in play. My ancestors are Czech and Norwegian where some of those heredetary problems seem to occur more often. Sorry this is so long. My question is how can I further improve my son`s chances to get strong bones and teeth? I have started giving him the vitamin D drops that infants are supposed to take about a year and a half ago and have him eat dairy products whenever possible.
Avatar m tn I understand that the issue may not be my parathyroid but I walk an hour a day so I am in the sun and I take 2K IU of D when I am not taking the mega dose. Within two weeks of stopping the mega dose of D and going back to maintenance I feel terrible again. Recently we found out that my son is copper deficient, I haven't been tested for that. Do you have any suggestions?
Avatar m tn Sitting by a window, in the sun will not give you the amounts of vitamin D as if you were in the sun without the window, however, the combination of eating Vitamin D rich foods and sitting by a window (about 1/2 hour few times a week) will give you the Vitamin D your body needs. People who do not get outside or unable to go outdoors, a sunny window is the next best thing for them. It is better than not at all. Hoped this helped you.
5817099 tn?1376924181 Vit D, why isn't it a standard test? Hi, 2 years ago I was diagnosed with NO vitamin D in my system at all even though I had been taking multi vitamins with a total of over 1000 ui daily of vit D for many years in a tablet form. The reason for the test: memory loss, fatigue, speech, swelling, pain, vision, weight gain, numbness, hair falling out, bone loss, etc for over 4 years that no doctor could figure out what was wrong with me & I finally asked for the actual vit D test..
Avatar f tn In the last month I was found with hematuria blood in urine and low vit. D I was put on 50,000 units of vit d weekly. UA again in 3 months. I have aches/pains that come and go in limbs and fingers. I was very tired but seem to be getting that under control. I did loose 15 pds but now my weight is steady. Praise. I do have stomach pain too that comes and goes. I have had multiple blood work everything came back fine except the vit d.
Avatar f tn Toxicity causes absorption of too much calcium resulting in kidney stones, kidney failure and calcification of the arteries. The above recommendation is well within the safe range.
Avatar m tn If you live in the north, it’s impossible to get enough D from sunlight, November to February. Vitamin D helps in the absorption of calcium and phosphorous. Vitamin D prevents rickets. Adults can develop a similar condition — osteomalacia where slight bone softening causes a pain mistaken for fibromyalgia. Low D can increase the risk of cancers colon, breast and prostate. Vitamin D inhibits the cell growth typical of cancer in most tissues of the body.
Avatar f tn In studies of immune cells, vitamin D shows anti-inflammatoryeffects. In an animal model of MS, vitamin D supplementation reduced disease severity and vitamin D deficiency worsened it. Additionally, a large, ten-year study found that women who took vitamin D supplements were 40% less likely to develop MS. However, since this was not a placebo-controlled study, the decrease in MS risk may have involved many other factors.
Avatar m tn First the liver must convert vitamin D to 25-hydroxy vitamin D. The second conversion takes place in the kidney when the 25-hydroxy form is further converted to 1-25-hydroxy vitamin D. THIS is the active form. I am not surprised those with Hep C, a disease that affects the liver, are so prone to low 25-hydroxy vitamin D. In these people the liver is not at it's best so is it any surprise to the first step of the vitamin's conversion to be reduced??
Avatar n tn Only this time they found that I had NO vitamin D in my system. They started me on Vitamin D and I have been doing great ever since. I don't take it in the summer. Every Fall I go have my levels checked. If they are low I take a Vitmain D. What a difference it made in my life. I honestly thought I was dying. I couldn't function. I couldn't even fold laundry. My muscles, bones and joints hurt. I had problems breathing,walking,thinking,etc....
