Vitamin D Is Saving Us, And Making Us Miserable
Vitamin D can treat the most common ailments that afflict people such as diabetes and depression. But it's a double edge sword. It can also cause some serious problems if you get too much of it.
There are a lot of papers about Vitamin D that will be presented at this year's meeting of the Endocrine Society. Vitamin D, is a big topic among endocrinologists.
In the discussion of vitamin D versus depression, a handful of women saw significant improvements when they were tested for concurrent vitamin d deficiency. According to Snoal Pathak, MD:
"Vitamin D may have an as-yet-unproven effect on mood, and its deficiency may exacerbate depression,"
"If this association is confirmed, it may improve how we treat depression."
Vitamin D deficiency has also been linked to an
increased risk of Type 2 diabetes
But too much of it isn't good right? Many doctors will tell you that supplements are a good idea, especially when paired with calcium, but it also looks like that duo might also lead to trouble.
When combining vitamin D and calcium could lead to increased risk of hypercalcemia and hypercalciuria, which means more calcium in the blood and urine, plus kidney stones.
The solution? In moderation is always the best.
