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?

    First of all is the 119 measured as ng/ml or nmol/l? Does this mean you do not take any Vitamin D supplements? Do you take any supplements that might have Vitamin D in them that you hadn’t noticed until now? Where do you live (state and or country) and do you go outside a lot? Are your calcium levels normal?

    Thanks, I live in east Tennessee. I do not spend much time outside, and I have not taken anything that includes vitamin d in three and a half years when I was first diagnosed. I gave up all dairy and avoid foods containing vitamin d. The results of bloodwork were measured by ng/ml units. I am 60 years old, female, and my calcium was slightly low at last testing in late December.

    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.
