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
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.

No Relationship: No relationship has been shown between low vitamin d and high ldl. However, studies do show patients with low vitamin d may not tolerate statins well due to muscle aches, pain or weakness. Limited data also suggest that supplementing with vitamin d3 can improve tolerance to statins. Due to poor absorption of high doses many physicians recommend 5, 000 - 10, 000 iu daily instead of 50, 000 iu weekly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
