No Risk That Vitamin D Causes Kidney Stones

October 17, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Despite findings from earlier studies, vitamin D supplementation does not increase the risk of developing kidney stones, according to a U.S. study. Researchers looked at data collected from 2,012 participants of all ages over 19 months. The news should come as a relief for many patients because evidence is growing that a vitamin D serum level in the therapeutic range of 40 to 50 ng/mL reduces the risk of many diseases, including breast and colorectal cancer. The study did show that older males with higher body mass index were more likely to develop kidney stones.
