I m having vitamin d deficiency , high uric acid level usually. I feel pain in my legs, arms and in my lower back right side also.What should I do?

Pain: First off, high uric acid doesn't mean gout. A lot of folks have high uric acid but no gout. Gout is usually seen at an older age than yours, so i cannot tell you based on your presentation what the cause of your pain is.

Ana (Definition)

An "ana" is a blood test used to screen a person for the possibility of several autoimmune diseases.

If a patient had vitamin d deficiency for years will other blood results such as calcium show high or low levels?

If a patient had vitamin d deficiency for years will other blood results such as calcium show high or low levels?

Likely normal or low: Prolonged vitamin d deficiency can be associated with low circulating levels of calcium. Often, though if there is adequate dietary calcium intake and even occasional vitamin d intake through diet or production through sun exposure, circulating calcium levels can be normal (although other lab values such as parathyroid hormone (PTH) or alkaline phosphatase will be high and serum phosphate low). ...Read more

Is it possible for elevated bilirubin levels and being vitamin d deficiency to have anything to do with each other?

Is it possible for elevated bilirubin levels and being vitamin d deficiency to have anything to do with each other?

Doubtful: I highly doubt any relationship between elevated bilirubin and vitamin D deficiency in adults. Given the epidemic of vitamin D deficiency, physicians would see thousands more patients with elevated bilirubin if there was a relationship between the two. That being said, a 2013 study from Asia suggests low vitamin D may be associated with elevated bilirubin in neonates. ...Read more

Could a severe vitamin d deficiency mask primary hyperparathyroidism by lowering serum calcium levels? [would u see low-normal calcium and high pth?]

Could a severe vitamin d deficiency mask primary hyperparathyroidism by lowering serum calcium levels? [would u see low-normal calcium and high pth?]

Primary hyperpara: Low vit d is common in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. Although it is possible that it can mask the hypercalcemia, usually it does not. If your d is low, and you have hyperpara, you will likely still have a high ca. The low d may make the PTH level even higher, and vit d supplements should be given and they will not exacerbate the high calcium. This is complex. See endocrinologist. ...Read more
