Usually: Physicians put patients with pain or bone loss and Vitamin D deficiency on huge doses once a week or for one week then drop it down to a lower dose. It is true that some find that to cause bone pain and GI upset. In that case you may want to try 4000 units a day for a few weeks and then go back down to 2000 units a day and have your blood levels rechecked at three months. Also use D3, not D2. ...Read more

Frequent urination and vitamin d deficiency. Is there a connection?

No known connection: The institute of medicine recently lowered the threshold for a vitamin d deficiency from 30ng/ml to 20 ng/ml so the probability of you even having a vitamin d deficiency is very low. If you are concerned, have a doctor do a simple blood test to check your levels. Frequent urination, associated with increased thirst, may indicate elevated blood sugar. Again, if so, see a doctor to be tested. ...Read more

I was told I had low vitamin d, blood trace in my urine and protein in my liver. What are the possibilities and what is most likely?

Low vit D: Is now known to be responsible for a lot of serious disease. It is not just a "bone vitamin" and affects every cell in the body. You need heavy replacement and as soon as the sun is ready for sun bathing start slowly to get a tan. You make your own vit d from the action of sunlight on skin. ...Read more

What does vitamin d deficiency indicate? Does it have anything to do with protein & epi in urine?

What does vitamin d deficiency indicate? Does it have anything to do with protein & epi in urine?

Risk factor: Vitamin d deficiency is a hot topic in medicine because not only contributes to bone loss and osteoporosis but also servers as a marker of increased cardiovascular risk just as a high cholesterol.
Studies in kidney disorders with protein in the urine show that replacing it helps reduce the protein losses.
Your level should 30 or greater. ...Read more

My 13year old sister is at the ER and is now told her vitamin d is only at 27&large amount of protein in her urine. She is not preg. What could be wrong?

My 13year old sister is at the ER and is now told her vitamin d is only at 27&large amount of protein in her urine. She is not preg. What could be wrong?

Minimal change dz: "large amount of protein" in the urine of a 13-year-old may be suggestive of minimal change disease, a nephrotic syndrome with relatively good prognosis. The required tests to make this diagnosis are not made in an er setting, unless its a concierge sort of er. Need a 24-hour urine collection or a spot prot/cr ration. Low vit d level is not an emergency. (good luck with your sister). ...Read more

Blood in urine, very low vitamin d levels, chronic fatigue. What could this be?

Microhematuria: Not sure of connection among these conditions. But when there is blood in the urine (Hematuria), we must check for infection, stone disease, renal diseases and urinary cancer. I would recommend seeing a urologist for cystoscopy ...Read more

Blood calcium's been high & normal, Vitamin D low, PTH-40.TSH 1.2 & 2.5.My urine calcium 625. Doc thinks I tampered w/it. Far from true. What is going on?

I suspect...: High urine calcium is from primary Hyperparathyroidism. I don't know your calcium but your PTH should be lower than 40 if your calcium is high. I would consider an evaluation by an endocrinologist with Hyperparathyroidism experience. ...Read more

Crp was high now normal. Sed rate elevated. Ana+w/speck pattern. Thyroid ok. Metabilic and CBC and urine ok. Little low vitamin d... Any idea?

Crp was high now normal. Sed rate elevated. Ana+w/speck pattern. Thyroid ok. Metabilic and CBC and urine ok. Little low vitamin d... Any idea?

Labs mean little: CRP and sed rate vary greatly for no obvious reason frmo day to day. A majority of americans run a low vitamin d due to our diets & habits. My one concern is if the ANA is at a high-titer, which warns of lupus or a variety of other possibilities, but labs mean nothing apart from the history and physical exam. ...Read more

I had regular check up done, cbc, liver, kidney, lipid, urine all normal. Should I test for Vitamin D deficiency? I read online that men should test.

Don't think so: There is no clear guideline regarding Vitamin D in younger people, the only solid recommendation is for older people with history of fall. ...Read more
