Vit D, Calcium,and Magnesium... OH MY!!
I am a 39 year old mother of two, and I feel like I'm falling apart. I have had many symptoms for years and wonder how it all fits together. I have been diagnosed with Vitamin d deficiency (11),high serum calcium levels (10.6,11,10.8)ionized calcium (5.8, 5.6,6) with normal to high PTH (high 50s to low 60s).
I suffer from kidney stones and also dexa bone scan shows oteoporosis. I have significant low back pain and hip pain. Sestamibi scan for parathyroid adenoma was inconclusive. It did show small amount of reuptake on left side.
Endocronologist is not convinced of hyperparathyroid disease because of PTH levels being normal. For the last 2 months I have been taking 10,000iu of vit d3 3xwk and my levels have gone up to 47 but calcium is unchanged. I suffer from anxiety and depression and have for many years. Could all of these symptoms be linked?
I have been doing alot of research and now I am finding out how Magnesium plays an important role in absorbing calcium and vit d. I am so confused and tired of doctors who just want to keep throwing me prescriptions for things that are unrelated.
Is the vit d deficiency the cause of the calcium levels, or vise versa and could all of it be caused by Magnesium deficiency?
Thanks in advance!
