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 more

Changes: I am one that believes that tubals interrupt some of the blood supply to each ovary which can change ovarian function.

It is treatable with the right physician. ...Read more

Having: Having hot flashes and night sweats for 7 years must be miserable. Please become established with a good family practice or internal medicine doctor in your area. You should have a medical workup. There are treatments that may help you, but it is important to closely establish with a good primary care doctor.

If it does end up being anxiety, there are treatments as well as medications that may help. ...Read more
I am on lo loestrin fe for premenopause but still experience hot flashes and night sweats. How long does it take for lo loestrin fe to help?
Menopause management: W/ Loestrin should reduce symptoms within the first pack. Birth control pills are dosed higher than most menopausal HRT so symptom relief should be quick. If not, then your symptoms may not be coming from an estrogen/progesterone imbalance. In my practice, I use sensitive salivary hormone testing to discover what is missing and replace only that. That seems to work best for my patients. ...Read more

Your gynecologist can prescribe a hormone replacement regimen that will lessen your symptoms considerably with minimum risk. ...Read more

Not necessarily.: If you handle menopause the same way as your family you may get the same result. Your endocrine (hormone), immune, and nervous systems are intimately related. If one is out of balance it can affect the others. Your hormones won't work well, despite adequate hormone replacement, if your adrenals and neurotransmitter (chemical messengers in the brain) levels are abnormal. ...Read more
