Hi All,

I had a review appointment with my consultant and I have been working on raising my Vit D to minimum of 150 to max of 225. The highest recorded level I have got to is 146 and at my latest review it went down to 91. I was dissappointed it had gone down but I had lowered my dose thinking I would still be high. I told my consultant that I am going to up my dose to get my levels up. My consultant said that my ideal dose is 75-150, I am happy to ignore this advice as I believe in the OMS programme, however When I went on to explain that I would continue to work to improve my levels he said that he was concerned that I could develop renal stones.

Has anyone else been told this?? my intention is to continue with higher doses anyway but is this a concern that any one else has been told??
Vit D is connected to calcium absorption in the body, in recent studies it has been shown that Vit D deficiency is more prevalent in stone formers than in controls, 56% of those with stones were deficient, compared with 44% in the control group.

My read on this is that low Vit D is more of a problem than higher Vit D.

I agree with Farrier.
I'm more scared of being low in vitamin D and having an attack that may be bad.
I try to keep my level at 200 nmol/L
I had a result of 299 and figured I only needed 8000iu a day. 8 months later my level was 79.
So I mega dosed and hope my next level is in the high range again.
HI there,
below is a reply from Profssor Jelinek to another member with concerns about high vitamin d3 levels.
I understand you don't have concerns, but that your Doc does.Maybe it is worth asking him where is the evidence that it causes renal stones!
Good luck
Rose

Hi Judy

You need to have a conversation with your doctor. 200nmol/L is within the normal range, that's right, the NORMAL range! That means many people who don't take supplements have a level of 200, and some higher, mostly those living in the tropics. There is no documented toxicity associated with that dose. More importantly, a high normal vitamin D level is one of the key ingredients for MS recovery.

Another conversation is in order. Ask to see the evidence suggesting toxicity at that vitamin D level.

Be well

George
Thank you Rose, Blueberry and Farrier - really appreciate your responses
