Specializes in Nephrology and Dialysis

Crackling sound from the joints, especially the knees, is usually benign and less likely due to high calcium. However, your underlying conditions such as high calcium, kidney issue and osteopenia are of concerns. Furthermore, why do you take more vitamin D if your calcium is high. You need to be evaluated and followed by a nephrologist. Good luck.
