Avatar f 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, 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.

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.
Avatar m tn It's estimated to affect half the planet has vitamin D deficiency. Considering that anything from cold to cancer is linked to vitamin D deficiency this is not surprising. Magnesium is the boss of all the major minerals (calcium, sodium, potassium) and the powerful steroid hormone that was misnamed a vitamin - vitamin D. Don't mess with the boss or you will see you are still vitamin D deficient after all that supplementation. Bonus tip: fat doesn't make you fat but high insulin does.
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 n tn Can a Vitamin D deficiency cause this much pain? Went to the doc for muscle pain & weakness with increasing shooting pains to the point of affecting everyday functioning. Blood test came back low in Vitamin D. Result was 11, (should be 26 to 55). Other results OK. Cervical Spine & lower back MRI OK. Treatment is 50,000 units of D per week for 4 weeks and thereafter once a month. Been on it for 4 months. Feel at times like I was in accident.

There is also an external link to a presentation made by Dr. Holick to the European Calcified Tissue Council that is very entertaining to watch and includes the most incredible information.

Avatar n tn supplementation over that may cause a risk for toxicity (increased calcium, weak muscles, weak bones, excessive bleeding, severe headaches, 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. Since you have been taking vitamin D supplementation for awhile, suggest getting retested.
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 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...
167 tn?1374177417 It stated that formula has Vitamin D added but that breastfed babies need to be given Vitamin D because breastmilk doesn't have Vitamin D. Do any of you breastfeeding mommies give your babies Vitamin D? I've never been told to do this.

Avatar m tn Uric stones are caused when there is too much uric acid in the urine with rheumatic conditions like gout. Calcium oxalate stones can from with too much protein in the diet, too much calcium and Vitamin D and through dehydration.
5817099 tn?1376924181 Unless you live in the Deep South, it’s impossible to get enough vitamin D from sunlight, November through February. Vitamin D and your bones Vitamin D improves our absorption of calcium and phosphorous, minerals essential for healthy bones. Low levels of vitamin D result in higher risk of fall and fractures. Children with low vitamin D develop rickets. This causes bowing of the legs.
Avatar f tn Testing for vitamin D Make sure your doctor checks your 25-hydroxy vitamin D. Levels below 20 are deficient, 20 - 30 borderline, and 30- 50 healthy. The best month to test? November. If you’re deficient then, you’ll be severely deficient at the end of winter. Vitamin D from the sun 10 minutes of direct sun on the face and arms 2 to 3 times a week is adequate, March through October (year round in the Deep South). Even an SPF 8 sun screen, however, will block vitamin D production by 90%.
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 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 f tn It took a while but the pain I was having was finally diagnosed as a kidney stone and I have another symptomatic one in the other kidney. But I wonder if kidney stones cause anemia because I suddenly became anemic just over a year ago and we have not been able to find a cause. Although I had occult blood in my urine due to the stone, it was not a lot. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this too or if anyone might know if stones can cause anemia?
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed 2004-ish. Reading the notes here it seems that it could be caused by a vitamin D deficiency. I wondered if anyone had been successfully treated (or at least the symptoms alleviated) with vitamin D and how long the treatment took before any effect was noticed? Thanks.
Avatar m tn Oops! I was so excited, I forgot to post the article. Excuse me for the multiple posts. Ev Long-term high dose vitamin D well tolerated A research letter published in the October 26, 2009 issue of the American Medical Association Journal Archives of Internal Medicine revealed that treatment with 50,000 international units (IU) of vitamin D per week was safe and effective over an 8 week period, and could also be safe to use every other week as maintenance.
535882 tn?1396580285 Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, which means the vitamin goes into our fat cells and the body does not excrete it. It is a required vitamin for our body to stay healthy as all the other vitamins and minerals are necessary. Vitamin D may decrease from certain medications such as certain anti-seizure, corticosteroids, heparin, certain antibiotics, mineral oil, and antacids; or certain disease states such as celiac disease, Crohn’s disease and Whipple’s disease.
168348 tn?1379360675 OK actually there are several reason why that could be happening,. According to the link above you sent it explains that Vit D from sun, food and supplements is processed two ways in the body, one is mainly in the liver and the other is mainly in the kidney. Those of us with MSK often have metabolic issues, I believe this has something to do with the defect itself and the way our kidney drain etc. I know that both my docs, Dr.
Avatar m tn Vitamin D may increase calcium levels and increase the risk of “hardening of the arteries” in people with serious kidney disease. This must be balanced with the need to prevent renal osteodystrophy, a bone disease that occurs when the kidneys fail to maintain the proper levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood. Calcium levels should be monitored carefully in people with kidney disease. High levels of calcium in the blood: Taking vitamin D could make this condition worse.
