16 year old golfer with sports injury in his back in May 2016, re-injured July 2016 playing squash, 2 MRI's done. What might cause ongoing pain......?
Is there instability?: One consideration is to do flexing and extending xrays. If there is motion that would explain the persistent pain. The MRI can show a stress fracture but sometimes it is hard to tell due to motion artifact. Given the lack of agreement I would bite the bullet and get a SPECT bone scan. If negative then push forward with core strengthening with a physiatrist and physical therapist. If it is a stress fracture and it is not healing you could consider a bone stimulator as an off label treatment. I published one case where this was done successfully in a 17 year old elite gymnast. ...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)?

Had 2 blood panels done 45 days apart. My calcium went from 9.0 - 10.1. Started 2000iu of vitamin D recently. Could that be the cause? Should I worry?
No concern usually: It's possible that the Vitamin D may have caused the elevation, particularly if you had significant vitamin D deficiency. 2000 units of Vitamin D is a relatively small dose and should not cause hypercalcemia (unless you had a co-existing primary hyperparathyroidism in which case hypercalcemia could develop with vitamin D repletion). ...Read more

Gentle sunlight exposure + dietary sources are best. ...Read more

Hi I have a problem of vitamin D. How can I increase my Vitamin D? I tried too much but nothing works on me
Oral d therapy: You can take oral vitamin d 250h. The amount one needs for repletion depends how low your d level is. If oral 25ohd does not work then there may be a malabsorption issue. You should discuss that with your doctor. We aim for 25ohd level to be above 30. Also sun exposure increases d level quite well. ...Read more

My vitamin d level has been very low & have taken 50, 000units twice a week for 2 1/2 years. Current level is 8.4. What health issues could this cause?
Quite unusual: Agree with dr. Garnier. You are on a high dose and been on it for a very long time. If your level is still 8.4, you are not absorbing it and you need to know why. In the meantime, try vitamin d3 instead and go with different route: sublingual/drops and see if it will make a different. Good luck. ...Read more
