As the authors of the article point out, “vitamin D hypervitaminosis” can cause many serious health problems. For example, a while ago, they had to hospitalize a middle-aged man for this reason. She complained to her doctor of recurrent vomiting, nausea, leg cramps, tinnitus, abdominal pain, dry mouth, diarrhea, weight loss (12.7 kg) and intense thirst. Moreover, all these symptoms did not disappear for almost three months, but these symptoms appeared about 30 days after the patient started taking vitamin supplements on the advice of a nutritionist.

It turned out that the man had many health problems. These are tuberculosis and inner ear tumor (which is why one ear is deaf) and fluid buildup in the brain and chronic sinusitis and bacterial meningitis.

The fact is that the patient took large doses of more than 20 over-the-counter nutritional supplements every day. These supplements include vitamin D (50,000 mg, daily requirement 600 mg), vitamin K2 (100 mg and daily requirement 100-300 mcg), vitamin C, vitamin B9, vitamin B2, etc.

Test results showed the man had extremely high calcium levels and slightly elevated magnesium levels after taking these supplements. In addition, the vitamin D in his blood was 7 times more than necessary.

It was also found that the man’s kidneys were not working as they should. In other words, there was acute renal failure.

The authors of the article emphasize that the symptoms of “vitamin D overdose” can last for several weeks. Other possible symptoms of vitamin D hypervitaminosis include lethargy, apathy, confusion, depression, psychosis, coma, stupor, anorexia, vomiting, abdominal pain, constipation, pancreatitis, peptic ulcer, pulse disorder, high blood pressure, kidney abnormalities, deafness, so-called specialists or hearing loss, joint stiffness, keratopathy.

News cannot be equated with a doctor’s prescription. Consult an expert before making a decision.
