Vitamin D And Kidney Function And Creatinine
Ionized Calcium 4.65, PTH 133, Calcium 10.3, Vitamin D 7, Phosphorus 4.9, recurrent Kidney stones. Thyroid lobe, two parathyroids removed in 2004.
Uncertain: These test results don't add up to a straight forward answer. However, I would be concerned about the possibility of recurrent primary hyperparathyroidism. You should take Vit D to eliminate Vit D deficiency as a cause for high PTH levels. Once this is done, if you still have high PTH with high calcium levels, you have recurrent primary HPTH and will need surgery again. ...Read more

Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more

But bottom line is that HYPERcalcemia at this level must be investigated soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
They do not extract: The liver and kidneys do not extract vitamin d, they activate it into forms that are usable by the body. Native vitamin d has no effect until it is activated.

Conversion to active Vitamin D: Vitamin d whether obtained from diet or from sun exposure must be metabolized first by the liver and secondly by the kidneys from a relatively inactive prohormone to the active form of vitamin d that is primarily responsible for its metabolic effects. In particular, the kidneys take 25 hydroxy vitamin d to 125 hydroxy vitamin d. ...Read more
Likely need Vit. D: At 65, you likely have basic labs performed, and hopefully on a routine basis. Typical labs will give a basic exam on electrolytes and waste products. A Complete Metabolic Panel and thyroid test will give a view of organ function. Vitamin D has a large therapeutic index and the likelihood of it being low increases with age. B12 also follows this pattern. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I already take 3700 iu of vitamin d, why does it keep showing up that I am deficient? My thyroid and kidneys are fine.
Not enough D: It sounds like you are taking enough vitamin d to maintain healthy levels, but not enough to raise deficient levels into the healthy range. You may need to take very high doses of vitamin d for 3 months or more to get your levels into a healthy range. Other possibilities might include poor absorption of fat and fat-soluble vitamins like vitamin d, or taking steroids. Work w/ your doc on this. ...Read more
I get kidney stones but I am also very low on active vitamin d. Will taking active vitamin d cause an increase in calcium thus more stones?
D3 and stones: Vitamin D3, when activated by the liver and kidney, does enhance calcium absorption across the intestine. So, your kidney's excretion of calcium may increase. It is essential to know why you form stones. The standard prevention is high intake of citrate and fluids - get citrate from ReaLemon extract, 5 tblspn / day - and drink 4 liters fluid per day, avoid salt, reduce meat. Add 1000 IU D3/day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Vit D toxicity: If you take a lot of Vit D, and I mean A LOT for a prolonged period of time, you can get vit D toxicity, which can raise blood calcium and potentially cause kidney stones. A normal daily supplement is not a problem. The treatment regimens typically used to treat low Vit D are not a problem. ...Read more

Magnesium, Vitamin K: Magnesium has been proven to dramatically reduce recurrence of kidney stones- research shows that taking magnesium reduces incidence of kidney stones 90-92%- it probably works best combined with vit b6 try about 600 mg of magnesium as glycerinate, citrate or taurate and 50-75 mg of b6. I feel everyone taking d should also take vit k, at least 1 mg/day- vit k makes sure calcium goes to your bones. ...Read more
