Reply To: I have unexplained excessive Vitamin D, yet I never see any articles about excessive issues. I have been told by doctor's that it is rare, and while they are concerned, they don't know what to do. Last test result was 119. Any suggestions?
Just double checking but this was a 25OHD vitamin D test and not a 1.25OH test?
I was looking for “high” calcium levels and you said low. So I found this interesting from “labtestsonline”. “If magnesium levels are low, they can cause a low calcium level that is resistant to vitamin D and parathyroid hormone regulation.” “It may be necessary to supplement both magnesium and calcium to regain normal function.”
So before I found that, I was going to ask if you take any magnesium and if so how much a day? The recommendation from the VDC is 500mg a day for women. (Any type of magnesium accept oxide will do.) You really cannot rely on the standard magnesium test that they do to know if you are deficient. My doctor presently does the magnesium RBC and expects my levels to be at the “upper end” or he is not happy. Try lots of magnesium and see if that changes anything.
