Has it been looked into if an abundance of vitamin K in the blood causes autism? I know the study was of a deficiency of the vitamin. Thank you.

Has it been looked into if an abundance of vitamin K in the blood causes autism? I know the study was of a deficiency of the vitamin.  Thank you.

How to say this...: I'm glad you asked the question here. In 2006, someone in the not-so-mainstream world of unproven " biomedical" cures for autism, like treating yeast , thought that giving vit k would be curative. Later, someone decided that vitamin k shots given to newborns since i-don't- know-when were a cause of autism , claiming they were dissolved in a base..Or an acid..Or both..

29 yr male.Sr creatinine 0.9 last yr.Now 1.1.UrineAnalysis normal.ultrasound fine.BUN12.No bp/diabetes.had vitd&b12 deficiency(3mnths).Y this increase?

Insignificant: This is normal lab variation. Repeat it and you're likely to see it fluctuate around 1.0 +/- 0.2. It reflects your state of hydration at the moment of the test and normal variation in the laboratory performing the test. Serum creatinine does not have the precision of an atomic clock! BTW both of your numbers reflect NORMAL glomerular filtration rate which is what creatinine approximates. ...Read more

My vitamin d level is 12. My face is bloated since a few years. My thryoid, creatinine,cortisol etc are fine. Is the swelling due to my deficiency?I

My vitamin d level is 12. My face is bloated since a few years. My thryoid, creatinine,cortisol etc are fine. Is the swelling due to my deficiency?I

One way to find out: Low Vit. D causes many imbalances.
Face bloating isn't a classic symptom of low D, but it's possible it's connected. Whether it is or not, it's important to correct this for your overall health. When your D levels normalize you will see if your bloating improves. Most adults need 5-8000 iu of D3/day. Aim for levels of 50-80.
