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.

Avatar n tn The kidney stones may get worst with vitamin D supplementation. Suggest increasing the dose slowly and get monitored. Are you taking vitamin C and calcium supplements? 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 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.

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. Suggest you stop taking the vitamin D supplements, restrict your intake of calcium, and see your MD.
Avatar n tn Most experts agree 5,000 to 10,000 units a day are safe. 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. What Foods Have Vitamin D?
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...
Avatar f tn Calcium oxalate stones Calcium phosphate stones Cystine stones Uric acid stones Struvite stones I do not know the answer about the calcium.
Avatar n tn I have been reading many message boards and feel am self educated about kidney stones by my own body. Each kidney stone is unique in severity of pain. The bigger ones don't always have bigger pain. The largest I have passed was5 ml. I just dont know what to do anymore. Im tired of passing them, tired of being in pain, tired of missing work and could be in danger of loosing my job. The painkillers are great , but takes a day or so to get back into functioning mode after taking them.
Avatar f tn I am a 46 year old female and my blood test results came back with a 13.2 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.

Your body will get rid of what B12 you don't need, so that is a non-issue. I am taking 2000iu of D3 and 1000mcg of B12 daily based on my doctor recommend and my levels. Good luck with your appointment coming up!

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 m 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 There is a small increase in the risk of kidney stones. Other factors, including diet, medical history, and possible side effects should be balanced against the limitedevidence of benefit. All these issues should be discussed with a physician or health care professional.

I have not had time to get to the website to read the other 11 studies.

Avatar n tn i am not sure if it is the pleurisy or not but i know a friend who said she has it and she is having to take steroids for hers and the pain is worse than kidney stones, ( which i have had) and labor pain.. yes i have been in labor and oh yes i have had spinals and epidurals in the past..several times but am not sure if that is related or not.. nor am i sure if this is pleurisy but i think you and I both need to probably ask our doctor.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed the weekly vitamin D3 pills and just started yesterday. My D was at 19. I am hoping this will help me. I have had fatigue for years and was diagnosed with Idiopathic Hypersomnia after a sleep study didn't show anything wrong. My iron & B vitamins always come up normal, as does my thyroid. Still, I take iron and B6 and B12 pills daily & they help a little.

Avatar m tn Vitamin D, I have now started on Vitamin D, 4000 iu/day for 3 month. I take Vit D3 - is that the right one?
Avatar f tn I went in a few months ago for recently worsening problems of neck muscle spasms, constantly feeling tired, crabby, eating a lot because I was so tired. We tried vitamin D3 at 50,000 a week which after 2 weeks made me feel 99% better, amazing even. I noticed my muscles had been weak where before I thought I was just out of shape. It was amazing. After 1 month my neck spasms even went away.My appetite went back to normal, my headaches went away.

535882 tn?1396580285 When people are as severely vitamin D deficient as I was, they are prescribed a once weekly megadose of vitamin D 2. But, they are still told to take a daily dosage of vitamin D3 of 2,000 iu. The idea behind this is to not only boost with the megadose, but to maintain with the daily dose. It matters overall which form of vitamin D you supplement with. So long as you don't need to raise your vitamin D level, then you only need to supplement with natural D3.

Avatar f tn You only need a maximum of dietary and supplements of calcium of 1000mg a day or you can get kidney stones etc. The important thing is the vitamin D will help you absorb it correctly. Yes I only needed to take more vitamin D this year. But then I also got a bone density that showed I had osteoporosis in my hips. I am only 51 so the doctor really increased my dose in order to increase the calcium absorption. My main pain is from the osteoarthritis though (not the osteoporosis).
