Hi i am 14 weeks pregnant. My vitamin D3 level is higher than the reference range. So i want to know that should I take calcium tablet with Vitamin D3 or plain calcium tablet?



Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hello...
Did you took higher dose of vit-d supplement... as it is very rare case... Some prescription medications used to treat high blood pressure (thiazide diuretics) and heart diseases (digoxin) can cause an increase in vitamin D in the blood.
Estrogen therapy, taking antacids for a long time, and isoniazide, an antituberculosis medication, can also cause elevated levels of vitamin D..
stop taking vitamin D and calcium supplements immediately. usually doctors recommend  to reduce the amount of calcium in your diet temporarily. In some cases, corticosteroids or bisphosphonates may suppress the release of calcium from your bones. please monitor your vitamin D levels frequently until they return to normal. take your doctor's opinion too... May suggest for urine test to check for excessive amounts of calcium in the urine.. To ingest vitamin D naturally, you can eat foods that are rich in it, including- cod liver oil, fatty fish, beef, cheese, egg yolks, mushrooms..
