Re: Osteoporosis, medication and vitamin D levels
Yes, you can get osteoporosis with a normal Vit d level. It's the calcium being sucked out of your bones that causes osteo. I tell every woman that will listen. I just recently had a parathyroid tumor removed. How did I find out I had it? The "biggie" is a calcium level anywhere in the 10+ range (docs don't know this), an elevated PTH level, and losing calcium in my bones (as it happens my D was low, too--that is needed to absorb calcium properly). The parathyroid is what directs our calcium to the right & wrong place! IF YOU NEVER PAY ATTENTION TO ANOTHER BLOG, THEN PLEASE LET IT BE THIS ONE! Sent with only the best regards!
