Help! Need to know if there's any effect of vitamin d deficiency on the risk of developing thyroid eye disease?
What are the symptoms of vitamin d deficiency? I have ongoing neck/shoulder pain, weak legs, fatigue and dizziness. Are these due to the deficiency?
Pain in ribs, legs,back, front bone in neck, hips,not able to sleep, and bones popping is it vitamin d deficiency related or symptoms of arthritis?
Could a severe vitamin d deficiency mask primary hyperparathyroidism by lowering serum calcium levels? [would u see low-normal calcium and high pth?]
Masking: Masking of hyperpara with low D is unusual. 40% of hyperpara patients present with vitamin D deficiency. It is important to get all labs checked at the same time (blood draw) to prevent confounding results from tine of day or day to day changes. The labs I check are: total calcium, ionized calcium, 25 OH vitamin D, magnesium, phosphorus, creatinine, chloride, and intact PTH. ...Read more
What could cause a persistently elevated serum calcium (10.4), vitamin d deficiency (19.7), but low pth (12)?
Vitamin D: Of 19.7 is a disaster since it should be between 60 and 80. I suspect that is the bottom line cause. ...Read more
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
What causes irregular menstrual cycles, vitamin D deficiency, peripheral neuropathy, gluten intolerance, high cholesterol, fatigue, low BBT?
There are many causes of irregular menses and you should see a Gynecologist about this.
Vitamin D deficiency is unnecessary. Over the counter bottles with 1000 mg daily should be enough.
Gluten intolerance is telling you to slow down taking any gluten.
High cholesterol can be treated and your doctor will assist you.

Could my severe vitamin d deficiency be the cause of my extremely high complement ch50 level? C3 and C4 are normal.

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 as well. 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. Vitamin d deficiency is often asymptomatic and is not manifested with pain. ...Read more
And your question?:
I'm not sure what you are asking. Yes, vit d deficiency can cause fatigue. It is easy to correct with 5-8000 iu of d3/day. B12 deficiency can be serious too- try 1000 mcg of sublingual b12/day ; if that does not help try injections. See http://bit. Ly/1fnt3ox ; http://bit. Ly/1607tg3
if fatigue persists after correcting then see a good doc to explore the many other possible causes of fatigue. ...Read more
I'm sixteen and have a vitamin D deficiency issue since I was young and high alkaline phosphatase level at 222 u\L could i have my second growth spurt?
I recently had a fasting blood test and was told I had a low white blood cell count. I also had a vitamin d deficiency. What does this mean?
See answer: A low white blood cell count(leukopenia) may or may not be significant. People of African ancestry can normally have a reduced WBC. A diet deficient in Vitamin D and/or lack adequate exposure to sunlight can lead to Vitamin D deficiency. Taking Vitamin D3 600-800 units daily is recommended. Higher doses may be needed.

Seek cause: Vitamin d deficiency is very common today & may explain the high alk phos in an adult; it's usually due to misguided "healthy" lifestyles avoiding sunlight and vitamin-d enriched dairy products. Anemia is more worrisome and always requires a real medical workup; nutritional iron deficiency is rampant in our world but other causes must be sought as well. Good luck & stay proactive. ...Read more

What are things you should know if you have an elevated pth, normal calcium level and vitamin d deficiency?
Correct D deficiency: Vitamin d deficiency reduces intestinal calcium absorption and stimulates parathyroid hormone secretion which maintains the blood calcium in the normal range until it is so severe that a low blood calcium develops. Correction of d deficiency restores the parathyroid hormone and calcium to normal. ...Read more
What are the typical symptoms of someone who has a vitamin d deficiency i also suffer from low iron can the two go hand in hand?.
All gradual: The symptoms tend to be gradual as in the case of osteoporosis.

Another reported noted reduced response to inhaled steroid in children with asthma when vit d3 is low. ...Read more

I have low vit d(18), ldl(158). Is there a possibility that vitamin d deficiency raise LDL levels? If so 60, 000iu per week dosage reduce LDL levels.
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 more
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
Yes: Severe Vitamin D deficiency(rarely seen in developed countries) can cause hypocalcemia. 25(OH)- D levels of 4.4 ng/ml (11 mol/L) or lower can cause hypocalcemia. Some of other causes of hypocalcemia include intestinal malabsorption, alcoholism, CKD, diuretics and hypoparathyroidism. Check ionized calcium level to confirm it is low. ...Read more
