Can Too Much Vitamin D Give You Hot Flashes And Night Sweats
No: Vitamin d regulates your body's absorption of calcium, so too much vitamin d will lead to hypercalcemia or too much calcium in your blood. Hypercalcemia typically manifests as constipation, nausea, polyuria (excess urination), and in severe/chronic cases, renal problems and cardiovascular issues. None of these issues would manifest as hot flashes or night sweats. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Vit d 6.84 ng/ml, can cause only legweaknes(on and off) low energy(on and off), hairloss. So low vit d causes any other symptoms? Is sunlight enough?
This level is low!: This vitamin d level is very low. Vitamin d not only helps your body absorb calcium much better, it also affects your muscle and core strength. We don't recommend spending too much time getting sunlight as as the primary source of vitamin d, due to the risk of skin cancer! see your doctor for a temporary high dose of vitamin d to 'catch you up', then take 1000-2000 units of vitamin d3 daily. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hormone balancing: Night sweats: there are many potential causes to sweating at night. The term night sweats generally refers to excessive sweating at night related to a hormone imbalance. There is no one answer to explain the origin of sweating at night. Some common causes are: infection, some cancers, several medications, low blood sugars and a host of other less common reasons. Were going to focus in on the hormone imbalance commonly seen in menopause, although by no means limited to menopause. We have seen a common night sweats picture in the men with prostate cancer with elevated estrogen levels. Swelling often starts around your neck We generally start with saliva testing which allows us to identify what the hormone imbalance actually is and treat accordingly. When we don't start with saliva testing we very often get very good success with progesterone cream in the form of wild yam cream. There are many different preparations of wild yam cream on the market and often the preparation does not have enough progesterone cream to be effective. The above is the simple answer the better answer is to work with a healthcare professional who has experiencing natural hormone therapy.
