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

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

I had blood work done to test for a vitamin D deficiency and they made me take a urine test too. What reason did I have to do that?

I had blood work done to test for a vitamin D deficiency and they made me take a urine test too. What reason did I have to do that?

Who is they?: A laboratory will only do tests ordered by your doctor. Vitamin D level requires a blood sample, not urine. Your doctor may have ordered a urine examination, otherwise the laboratory would have no reason to collect urine.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

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

As we all know vitamin d is taken from sun how could we have much of it if at the same time sun have uva and uvb (which cause cancerous problems)?

Two effects: Ultraviolet light from the sun has both the helpful effect of producing vitamin d, and the unhealthy effect of causing cancer. Races originating near the equator have darker skin to protect from skin cancer and are at extra risk for rickets especially in higher latitudes. Races from higher latitudes lost the pigment to protect from rickets, and are more risk for skin cancer. ...Read more
