What Causes Calcium Build Up In The Body
If D3 is to help body absorbs calcium, why they say taking large values of D3 supplements can cause calcium build up I n the artery.?
CA+ HAS MANY FORMS: Calcium your body absorbs from diet is not the same as that found in plaque. While organic calcium is necessary for many cellular processes, inorganic calcium is a hardening agent that is deposited from end stage disease or stress. While it is true that excess calcium may be deposited in kidneys or joints, calcium in plaque is usually a response to free radical damage to arteries needing repair. ...Read more
Calculus: Is the term for a harder (than plaque) deposit that many people get on their teeth. This should be scraped off in periodic dental cleanings. The cause is the continual accumulation of minerals from saliva on plaque on the teeth. Its rough surface provides an ideal medium for further plaque formation, threatening the health of the gingiva (gums). ...Read more
Band keratopathy: Calcium deposition in the eye occurs primarily in the cornea leading to a condition called band kerstopathy. Usually a result of chronic inflammation, repeated injury, chronic glaucoma, complicated surgical repairs as in retinal reattachment surgery using silicone oil. Fewer cases involve abnormalities of calcium-phosphorous metabolic disorders, multiple myeloma, & other. Treat: tears ; chelation. ...Read more

Kidney stones: Most often renal (kidney) stones are the result of dehydration. However, some people are more prone to form stones than others. I would recommend seeing a urologist who can do a complete metabolic workup of your stones, urine and bloodwork. With that info- you and your doctor will have a better idea of why you form stones and how to prevent them in the future. ...Read more

Depends: Many people make innumerable tiny crystals that continually pass out in the urine. If they stick together, the conglomerate becomes a kidney or ureteral stone. If it isn't too large (generally up to 5mm), it may pass with urine. If it does not, or if it is large, a procedure may be necessary. Stone formers are best served by preventing more stones by hydration +/- medication. ...Read more

2 ys ago, I had extreme pain in l hand, X-ray showed calcium build-up, acc to physician. A year later X-ray showed it was gone. What could cause it?
Calcific tendonitis can occur in any tendon in the body, but is common seen along the wrist main flexor and extensor tendons as well as the rotator cuff muscles.
We are not sure what causes it, but when the initial inflammation and pain resolves many times the calcium will be resorbed over months to years.
Treatment is splinting/nsaids/steroid injections and rarely surgery. ...Read more
My hole body cracks when I move is this caused by a lack of calcium? Could this also have to do with back injuries?
Llow calcium, or hypocalcemia, can produce tingling (pins/needles), usually in the face/lips, hands and feet. It can also cause tetany (delayed but persisting spasm) especially of facial muscles but does not cause widespread muscle or joint pain.
More importantly, it can cause cardiac arrhythmia (which can kill you). ...Read more

Can spinal cord injury (no known trauma) cause twitching through out the body? MRI of brain normal. Take magnesium, calcium, D3, but no help.
Unlikely: What type of spinal cord injury might you be referring to if you are saying there is no trauma in the history? In addition, for twitching throughout the entire body to be related to spinal cord damage that would imply that virtually the entire spinal cord itself would have to have been affected and that is highly improbable. Bottom line-spinal cord injury not responsible for body twitching. ...Read more
Yes and no: Plaque build up within arteries can be "soft" meaning that it is recent in orgin. This is the most unstable form of plaque in arteries and most likely to rupture and cause a problem. Plaque that has been present for a longer period of time becomes calcified and is more stable. There are often no symptoms associated with soft plaque. Calcified plaque in coronaries can lead to chest pain. ...Read more
Interested in the benefits of vitamin D combined with Vitamin K2. Especially with respect to minimising further calcium build up in arterial arteries.
I advise my patients to take 5-8000 iu of D3/day (esp. Fall and winter) and to take at least 150 mcg of K2/day though up to 15 mg/day is reasonable. See http://tinyurl. Com/2chkcer for more on D, http://www. Needs. Com/product/NDNL-0802-01/a_Vitamin_K about Vit K,

Not exactly: You don't exactly want to build up calcium. I think you're trying to build stronger bones. That takes work, i.e. Weight bearing exercise. Just eating calcium rich foods, antacids or calcium supplements without exercise, which forces your body to build and remodel bones, is like topping off your gas tank without driving your car. There are side effects from high calcium and vitamin d levels. ...Read more
Few theories: Calcific tendonitis most commonly involves shoulder. Three main theories: reactive calcification; endochondral ossification with tendon cells converting to cartilage cells to form bone; ectopic bone formation with change of mesenchymal stem cells into osteogenic cells (bone forming cells). Tendintis usually deposits of hydroxyapatite (a crystalline calcium phosphate) in any tendon of the body. ...Read more
