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.

895634 tn?1283992810 •Other substances also can form stones including the medications acyclovir, indinavir, and triamterene. The biggest risk factor for kidney stones is not drinking enough fluids. Kidney stones are more likely to occur if you make less than 1 liter of urine a day. That's slightly more than a quart. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001493/ I have had chronic kidney stones since my early 20's so I am familiar with the pain involved, not very pleasent.
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 m tn Can Kidney stones lead to weak erections? I'm a healthy enough 20 year old male who's had no problems with the little guy saluting me before, but I've noticed recently it's becoming a nuisance. I didn't think anything of it at the time, but the doctor asked if I'd noticed anything going on or weakening of my erections, but now it's got me thinking twice. I've got a stone in each kidney they say, and they basically told me good luck and to wait it out hoping for the best.
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 f tn vitamin c, acidophilis, apple cider vinegar & cranberry capsules. Would these be helpful?
Avatar m tn When you urinate, catch it into a see through glass jar so that you can look at it to see if any sediment or stones are being passed out, you will experience pain when this happens. Once you have kidney stones, unfortunately when the stone is gone, you will be at a higher risk of getting stones again, so it is important to make sure you drink plenty of water and do not get dehydrated.
Avatar n tn Hi, Causes other than a UTI than can cause blood in urine include, kidney stones, underlying kidney disease, STDs that are not detected on routine urinalysis (chlamydia and mycoplasma infections), increased blood pressure, exercise-induced bleeding, general bleeding disorders, etc. Kidney stones up to 5 mm in size can pass through the urinary tract, though with significant discomfort.
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.
Avatar m tn Has anyone here with kidney stones tried vitamin B6 and magnesium to prevent new stones from forming? I read a study that concluded that taking 50 mg of B6 daily with 300 mg of magnesium oxide (one of the least absorbable forms of magnesium) will prevent future kidney stones. I also read that potassium and B6 does the same. Perhaps the magnesium works because potassium is better absorbed if there is sufficient magnesium.
Avatar n tn Hi, Lower back pain on one side that increases on resuming activity after one has been lying down for a while and pain radiating down one lower limb, mainly the inner side of the thigh and the back of the knee has been associated with kidney stones or ureteral stones. Bladder infection is usually characterized by increased frequency of urination, pain or burning sensation during urination, lower abdominal pain of a dull. cramping type, and some amount of back pain, and blood in the urine.
Avatar m tn Is there anyway that these symptoms might be connected? Also, could my kidney stones be the cause of my infections? In a recent (a few months ago) ER CT scan, it was determined that I had 11 stones in one kidney (the side that I experience the most pain on) and 4 in the other.
Avatar f tn Constantly losing blood in the urine can cause anemia, even if it is occult. Stones can sometimes cause kidney failure. Chronic kidney failure can cause anemia. This is due to a decreased secretion of the hormone erythropoietin. This hormone is a necessary stimulus for normal bone marrow to produce red blood cells. Just cautioning you. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
452063 tn?1324078516 I have seen at least a dozen posts with kidney stones. There has to be some correlation between opiate use and kidney stones. My surgeon showed me mine on the CT scan and it's a white circle as big as a golfball. He feels it might be from chemicals but said that it's probably from my chemo. I keep thinking that he is gonna pull out a big white opiate that either says Endo or Watson on it lol. Just wondering if anyone else was told theirs was from chemicals?
Avatar m tn After being diagnosed with a kidney stones of 3mm more than a week ago, I still haven't passed it but I passed 7 other stones a little bit smaller. I keep them all. My right side of back, my abdomen and grion hurt still even with the pain meds prescribed to me. Why is it taking so long to pass?
Avatar n tn Magnesium helps the body dissolve calcium if you’re deficient in this it can cause calcium to accumulate into deposits, which increases your risk of forming kidney stones. Harvard researchers found that taking magnesium along with vitamin B6 can reduce calcium oxalate stone formation. Vegetarians actually tend to form significantly fewer calcium oxalate kidney stones than meat eaters. Vegetarian diets include more bulk and fiber, which lowers calcium output.
Avatar f tn Found out I have kidney stones. Now suffering from kidney stones, mental confusion, lack of motivation (mild depression), heart palpitations, dizziness/faint feeling. My urine calcium is 416, my blood calcium is 10.2, and my PTH is 23. Wondering if I have hyperparathyroidism? My urologist put me on thiazide and wants me to watch sodium intake-I'm not a salt person anyway so this is easy. My blood pressure seems to be creeping up a bit as well. I would appreciate any help!

Avatar n tn I'm also taking I believe 250mg of verapamil a day, and I've heard that can cause kidney stones. Is that true? And if so, does that plus this B2 make the risk higher or am I just over thinking this?
Avatar f tn His pain returned and he again had blood in his urine (this time he also had crystals in urine) and a sono showed multiple kidney stones, measuring a bit bigger than his last ones. His doctors are insistent that his stones are not the cause of his pain. They also say that this is not a ureteral spasm and they have checked him for various kidney and metabolic disorders and found nothing.
541196 tn?1293556536 I take a multivitamin daily with 800 iu of Vitamin D. I also recently added 4 gummy vitamin D's that total an addition 1200. I have been hovering with a deficiancy of around 19... today I got the labs back and now I am down to 14. My dr. said she needed me to add 50,000 iu weekly and then after a month go to doing the 50,000 iu once a month in addition to my normal daily 2,000. I am frustrated. I have hashimotos. I was just increased from 88 to 100 mcg of Synthroid this week.
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 n tn If a person takes very high doses of vitamin C, kidney stones have been known to develop. To help prevent possible kidney stones is to drink the daily-recommended fluid amounts of 8+ glasses (8oz or more) of water so your body is properly hydrated. Your sister needs to see her MD to be treated for the existing kidney stones. Best of luck.
Avatar f tn I am taking 50,000 IUs of Vitamin D once a week. I just started taking it 2 days ago and have been extremely fatigued and sleepy, not normal for me. I also have had some bone and joint pain, which I've never had before. Some place online say this is a symptoms of an overdose. 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?
Avatar f tn A Multi-vitamin, 1000 mg.Vitamin C, 1000 IU Vitamin D, Calcium Citrate consisting of 200 IU of calcium and 315mg. of Vitamin D, and 1000mg.Omega 3 Fish Oil, 2-3 times/day, and 1000mg Echinacea. Is there a problem taking these daily and should I take anything else? Because of my FMS I'm not as active as I should be that's why I try to take various supplemants. There is a natural product for FMS called Fibrosense I am considering trying now but will take any vitamins that might help as well.
Avatar f tn The D will help you hold onto calcium, and keep your teeth and bones strong. The only reason this can backfire is if you have a kidney insufficiency, kidney stones, or an overactive parathyroid. In those cases taking D can actually cause kidney stones, strokes and more. So the main thing is to make sure you need the vitamin by having a blood test done to check both the D level, and your calcium level.
