Stop Taking Vitamin D
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Mary,

What was your neurologist thinking?! Are you sure that you got the dosage correct because 32 is not that low of a dose and 20,000 IU's per DAY is far far too much to take for 4 months. Are you sure that he didn't want you taking 20,000 IU's per WEEK instead?

Unfortunately, there is no other way to bring your vitamin d level down except to stop taking it and being sure to avoid any sun.

As far as your symptoms, vitamin d toxicity is defined by high levels with a high calcium level, so if your calcium level is normal than you are NOT toxic. If you didn't have a calcium level, then you may want to ask your doctor for a calcium level since you are having symptoms.

But your symptoms sound more like Signs of Magnesium Deficiency, which is why I always recommend that everyone take Magnesium and Vitamin D together and to never take high dose vitamin d like that by itself.

Unfortunately, if you only have one kidney, you absolutely MUST speak to your nephrologist before taking any magnesium- and while it's unlikely that you have kidney damage from the high vitamin d levels, you'll have to speak to your nephrologist about that as the only way to know for sure is on lab tests.

High Vitamin D3 levels may cause magnesium deficiency
by: Colleen hamson

Too often doctors know too little about proper vitamin balance. When taking D3 you should also be taking magnesium as D3 is known to deplete it. Studies show D3 should be taken with magnesium and calcium at a 1 to 1 ratio.

Yes, many websites will say 2 to 1. However, I prefer the latest finding.
