Vitamin D and Renal Disease - Mayo Clinic
A commentary by Mayo Clinic Nephrologist Rajiv Kumar, M.D., in the current issue of the journal Kidney International suggests that Vitamin D may improve the treatment of renal disease. Dr. Kumar says that while larger clinical trials are needed, he believes doctors should start treating patients with diabetes who have low serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin (the active form of vitamin D) with vitamin D3 to help slow down the progression of kidney damage. Dr. Kumar cautions that more research is needed and that patients should always consult their doctors before consuming vitamin D supplements on their own.

What dose of Vitamin D does not affect kidneys? - Dr. Vidyashankar Panchangam
The current dose of Vitamin D is, always it can be treated on estimation on the Vitamin D levels. The normal dosage is, it has to be between 60,000 International Units, weekly once for 8 weeks. This has to be repeated for once in 6 months based on the Vitamin D level. There can be tendency for Vitamin D toxicity. That can also lead to high calcium and kidney issues. So whenever you take Vitamin D, always see that your calcium levels are checked. It should not be taken more because the active Vitamin D, it will cause more calcium in the blood that causes kidney failure. So the Vitamin D toxicity can be found in terms of high calcium and kidney failure. So it has to be taken carefully.

7 Best Herbs for Kidney Cleansing
Your kidneys are organs that are shaped like a bean. They are located at the backside of your abdomen. They provide your body with very important functions. Particularly, they are primarily responsible for filtering waste and toxins from your bloodstream. They also release important hormones into your body: erythropoietin, renin, and calcitriol. Those hormones are extremely important to your overall health. Your kidneys are constantly working, along with your other organs, in order to keep your blood pressure under control, produce red blood cells and to create Vitamin D. Kidneys are organs that essentially cleanse themselves. However, to help them do this, you must drink enough fluids and remain hydrated. You can also help to achieve this by eating certain fruits and vegetables, as well as drinking water. When your kidneys cleanse themselves, they are not only removing toxins from your body, but also help to keep your blood pressure under control, help the function of your urinary tract and help the function of your bladder. If you are feeling symptoms of kidney trouble, you may need some extra help in cleansing your kidneys. These symptoms can include: feeling fatigued, feeling moody, feeling pain in your kidneys after eating, eczema of the skin, feeling boated, sudden weight gain, kidney stones, or urinary tract infections. You can help your kidneys along by maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regime. It is essential that you keep your body hydrated, as well. However, if you feel that you need a little extra help in cleansing your kidneys, you can turn to some herbs. It is important that you consult your doctor before adding any herbs into your daily regime. They may not be suitable for those with pre-existing kidney disease, or other medical conditions. The herbs may also interact with certain medications. Here is a list of the top “super herbs” to cleanse your kidneys: 1. Parsley Parsley is an herb that contains apiol and myristicin, which makes it a natural diuretic. That means that parsley helps to cleanse your kidneys and get rid of excess water within your body. Parsley can also help with your urination. Increased urination can help flush out toxins and germs out of your kidneys. 2. Dandelion Root Dandelion root is also a diuretic that helps to keep both your kidneys and your liver free of toxins. Dandelion root also removes any excess water from your body and prevents any irritation in the urinary tract. 3. Marshmallow Another herb that is also a diuretic is marshmallow root. Marshmallow root can help your body to keep your kidneys, urinary tract and bladder clean and free of infections. 4. Ginger Another effective tool for cleansing your kidneys is ginger. Ginger provides many benefits to your body, including helping to clean your body of toxins, cleanse your liver, and help with your digestion. 5. Turmeric Another herb that helps to cleanse your body is turmeric. Turmeric can help clean out kidneys, detoxify your liver and purify your blood. It also is able to prevent kidney inflammation and infections. 6. Celery Celery is another product that is a natural diuretic. It helps to remove harmful toxins and chemicals from your body. Celery also has natural nutrients that increase your kidneys’ performance. Consuming celery on a regular basis can help your body to prevent kidney stones and kidney infections. 7. Corn Silk Another natural diuretic is corn silk. This product helps your body to produce more urine, which in turn causes your body to get rid of waste and toxins. It can be used to treat bladder infections, kidney stones and urinary tract infections. Be sure to drink plenty of other fluids when you use corn silk to cleanse your kidneys and other organs. Additional Tips: - Do not smoke, use tobacco products, or consume an excessive amount of alcohol and caffeine. - Maintain normal blood pressure and blood sugar levels. - Keep your cholesterol levels under control. - Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water throughout the day. - If you are overweight, try to lose weight and maintain a healthy body weight. - Avoid fried foods and excessive salt. - Follow a diet rich in fruits, green vegetables, and whole-grain foods.

Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms [2018]
Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms, Effects, and Treatment What is your vitamin D level? You don't know. Could you have vitamin D deficiency? Subscribe so you’ll never miss my latest videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBve_ppCNE67fs3MsIocitg?sub_confirmation=1 Be sure to follow me on: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dr.frita/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Dr.Frita Vitamin D, vitamin D, vitamin D. Everyone seems to be talking about vitamin D lately. But what's the big deal? Why should you care about vitamin D? Well, I'll tell you why, because there are many, many consequences of vitamin D deficiency. One consequence, having a poor immune system or being sickly. You can also have muscle weakness with vitamin D deficiency. And, of course, you can have weak bones if your vitamin D is deficient. There are some observational studies that show that vitamin D deficiency may be associated with fatigue, poor wound healing, hair loss. What is vitamin D? Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is important in your body's absorption of calcium and phosphorus, which are both essential for bone health. But beyond being essential for bone health, vitamin D is also important for your immune system and for muscle strength. How do you get vitamin D in your system? Well, one way is through sun exposure. Yes, on a beautiful sunny day like today your skin can actually synthesize vitamin D from the sunlight. You can also get vitamin D through your diet, through foods like fatty fish, cod liver oil, cow's milk, and some vitamin D can be found in eggs, and then, of course, you can take vitamin D supplements. Who is at risk for vitamin D deficiency? People who don't have enough sun exposure are at risk. So if you are a person who wears a lot of sunscreens, or if you always carry an umbrella to prevent sun exposure, then you could be at risk for vitamin D deficiency, or people with darker skin with a lot of melanin in the skin are also at risk for vitamin D deficiency. Also, if you are a person who is homebound, or bed bound like a nursing home patient, you are at risk, and people who live in cold climates where they are essentially indoors during all the winter months, and not out getting sun exposure. These people are also at risk for vitamin D deficiency. You are also at risk if you have an inadequate dietary intake of vitamin D. What happens if you don't eat fatty fish, if you don't eat eggs, if you don't drink a cow's milk, and if you don't supplement your diet with vitamin D? Then certainly you can have vitamin D deficiency. You are also at risk for vitamin D deficiency if you are unable to absorb the vitamin D in your intestines properly. If you have Crohn's disease, then you are at risk, and if you have had a gastric bypass surgery, you can also be at risk for vitamin D deficiency. Patients with kidney or liver disease are at risk for vitamin D deficiency as well. Here's why. Both the liver and the kidney have enzymes which help to transform vitamin D into a biologically active form, so if you have kidney disease or liver disease, then make sure you check with your doctor for your vitamin D level, because you are definitely at risk for vitamin D deficiency. So how can you be diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency? Well, you simply go to your physician and ask for a blood test, your vitamin D level. A normal vitamin D level is at very least 30 nanograms per milliliter, but we actually prefer your vitamin D level to be greater than 50. You have vitamin D insufficiency if your vitamin D level is less than 30, and you have frank vitamin D deficiency if your vitamin D level is less than 20. So what is the treatment for vitamin D deficiency? Well, in addition to sun exposure, and to increasing vitamin D in your diet, you can get vitamin D supplementation. The two most commonly used vitamin D supplements are vitamin D2, or ergocalciferol, and vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol. I actually use both of these types of vitamin D when I treat my patients in my practice with vitamin D deficiency. This ends my overview of vitamin D deficiency symptoms, effects, and treatment. Let me know other topics you'd like for me to discuss. Also, share my video, like my video. Please hit the subscribe button. I want you to please prioritize yourself. Be selfish sometimes. Take care of you, and do your best to live your healthiest, happiest life.

How to Dissolve Kidney Stones (Part 1)
I recommend using this electrolyte powder to spike your potassium citrate and magnesium citrate: https://shop.drberg.com/electrolyte-powder-regular Take Dr. Berg's Advanced Evaluation Quiz: http://bit.ly/EvalQuiz Your report will then be sent via email analyzing 104 potential symptoms, giving you a much deeper insight into the cause-effect relationship of your body issues. It's free and very enlightening. Dr. Berg talks about dissolving kidney stones. Most stones are calcium oxalate stones. This is different than gallbladder stones. You need to consume lower oxalate in your diet. You also need to increase citrates in the diet. Citrates combine with stones. 1. The best way to do this is with lemon juice and potassium citrate. Magnesium is another good mineral, but take in citrate form https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-1-4614-9575-8_4 2. Avoid oxalates (see below) 3. Avoid calcium from supplements, but dietary calcium is okay, since it can bind with calcium before it turns into stones. However, there is also mixed reviews on this and some say that taking calcium would be okay. 4. Of course if you have a kidney stone, adding more water will help, however, drinking excessive water in general without electrolytes will not prevent kidney stones. The key is drinking adequate amounts of fluid. Sometimes when I tell people not to drink excessive amounts, they interpret this as to avoid drinking water - no, just drink when you are thirsty and if you have a stone or develop stones easily, drink more. 5. Vitamin D most likely will help prevent kidney stones. This is an excellent read: http://oxvox.com/the-importance-of-vitamin-d-in-the-low-oxalate-diet/ https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/10/131017173352.htm 6. Vitamin K2 helps keep calcium out of the soft tissues of the body and this is a must. 7. There are mixed reviews on vitamin C (specifically ascorbic acid) on if it contributes to stone formation. 8. Too much sodium could contribute to stone formation in some people. HIGH OXALATE FOODS: Spinach Avocado Dates Grapefruit Potato Wheat Beans Canned pineapple FOOD LOW IN OXALATE Kale Cabbage Bok Choy Cauliflower Cucumber For Uric Acid Stones This can be triggered from higher amounts of insulin or sugar intake. It can also be triggered from ketosis. Potassium citrate will help this.

Vitamin D - Synthesis and Roles in the Body
This is a brief overview of how Vitamin D is synthesised in the body, how it acts on the vitamin D receptor and what effects it has on the body. Vitamin D can be made in the skin when it's exposed to sunlight. First cholesterol is turned into 7 dehydrocholesterol by an enzyme called dhcr7. UVB radiation from the sun, then turns this into previtamin D, which spontaneously transforms into vitamin D at body temperature. This actually means that because Vitamin D can be made by the body, it's technically not a vitamin, since a vitamin by definition is something that can't be made by the body. There are 5 forms of vitamin D found in nature, but the body only makes one, Vitamin D3, also called cholecalciferol. Even when vitamin D has been synthesised from cholesterol, it is still not active, and there are two more steps needed until it becomes active. The first step is the conversion to calcidiol, which happens in the liver. Calcidiol is then converted to calcitriol which is the active form of vitamin D. This step happens primarily in the kidney and is controlled by parathyroid hormone, calcium and phosophate concentrations in the blood, and the concentration of calcitriol in the blood. Now that our vitamin D is finally active it circulates in the blood and acts like a hormone. When it reaches the cell, it binds to the vitamin D receptor also called the calcitriol receptor. This whole thing then forms a big complex with the retinoid X receptor, or RXR receptor. Finally the RXR receptor needs to be bound by Vitamin A, making a big structure composed of calcitriol, the vitamin D receptor, the RXR receptor and vitamin A. This complex won't be active until Vitamin A is present, which effectively means that Vitamin D is useless unless Vitamin A is also available in the cell. When activated, this complex binds specific areas of DNA and increases transcription of some dna and decreases transcription of other dna. functions of vitamin D Probably the most famous role of vitamin D is to increase the level of calcium in the blood. it does this by Promoting absorption of calcium from the gastrointestinal tract, meaning that we get more calcium from the food that we eat Reducing the amount of calcium that is lost in the urine, by Increasing reabsorption in the kidneys stimulating calcium release from bone by activating osteoclast cells Vitamin D also has effects on the parathyroid gland. It acts to stop parathyroid cells from proliferating too much. when the parathyroid gland becomes vitamin D deficient, it starts to grow to a bigger size than it is meant to and secretes too much parathyroid hormone, resulting in hyperparathyroidism. Vitamin D stops parathyroid cells from proliferating too much Vitamin D also has a role in the immune system with vitamin D deficiency and excess both having negative effects. Macrophages, dendritic cells, B cells and T cells can respond to and synthesise calcitriol. Earlier I said that the conversion of calcidiol to calcitriol happens primarily in the kidney but another place that this can happen is in immune cells. Vitamin D can also lead to the production of antibacterial peptides such as cathelicidin and beta defensin 4. These work by disrupting the cell membranes of bacteria, causing them to die. Summary So, in summary, the skin produces vitamin D from cholesterol when exposed to UVB sunlight. Vitamin D is converted to Calcitriol and is then active The most well known role of calcitriol is in calcium metabolism, but it has many other effects, such as in the immune system and on the parathyroid gland Future videos are going to look the roles of vitamin D in more detail, the amount of vitamin D that humans need and how the recommended daily allowance has been determined, the studies that have been done on vitamin D supplementation, what happens in deficiency and excess, and how prevalent vitamin D deficiency is.

Note: thinking positive however sure won’t hurt, in fact it will go along way; your mindset is the single biggest determining factor on how quickly you heal. … So in tune with today’s theme of simplicity, I would like to share with you 10 effortless tips that can be applied immediately to help your kidney function http://bit.ly/2ovicDZ, no need to leave home, and no need to spend a dime. How To Improve Kidney Function In 10 Easy Steps OK, let’s begin shall we? 1. The Water Hydration Technique: You know how most of us generally go for long periods without water, become thirsty (and dehydrated) and scull the next available glass in about 30 seconds? Have you ever thought what this does to your body? No? I don’t blame you. The actual fact of the matter is that every time you a drink a glass of water (or any fluid) in a hurry, you are placing pressure on kidney function. How? Well, seeing as one of the functions of the kidneys is to keep the fluid levels in the blood stream balanced, by drinking a full glass of water at once you are essentially dumping a large amount of water into the blood stream, which the kidneys now need to balance out (i.e. increase urine production). By drinking slowly, a mouthful at a time, you reduce the pressure on the kidneys and increase hydration. Sound too simple to do any good? Good. Now try it. 2. Sunshine: As you are probably aware, when sunlight touches the skin, light sensitive receptor cells are activated to produce the active form of vitamin D. Vitamin D has many benefits in the body, the main benefits being: cancer prevention, immune system enhancement, bone health, and regulation of phosphorus and calcium levels (which is important in kidney disease). Did you know then that one of the key functions of kidneys is to active vitamin D too? True. By spending just 15 mins a day under the light of the sun, you can let the sun and your skin do all the work. Your kidneys will be saved the extra work, and at the same time you get to enjoy the open air. The other important thing to note is that if your kidney function has deteriorated too far, then your kidneys will not be able to produce enough active vitamin D anyway, making sunshine all the more necessary. Low levels have been linked to diabetes, kidney disease, cancer, and heart disease. People experiencing kidney disease, coupled with low vitamin D levels, have a 26 percent greater risk of dying than those with sufficient levels of vitamin D. Have your vitamin D levels tested with your next visit at your doctors: Optimal reference range for healthy individuals: – US measurement: 50 to 70 ng/mL – World measurement: 125 to 175 nmol/L Optimal reference range for treating heart disease, cancer, and kidney disease: – US measurement:70 to 80 ng/mL – World measurement: 175 to 200 nmol/L Is the sun shining where you are right now? If yes, jump outside! 3. Juicing: Juicing is a favourite kidney function treatment of mine; it’s cheap, and it is easy to do. Vegetables just like herbs contain not only vitamin and minerals that we are all familiar with, but also contain nutrients known as phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are simply ‘nutrients’ (chemical compounds) derived from plants that are produced by the plant to aid in its survival, including: chemical messengers, structure, protection from harmful organisms, protection from insects, or even attracting pollinating insects. The interesting thing with phytonutrients however, is that although these chemicals were made specific for the plant, by some miraculous way, these natural chemicals lend themselves perfectly to other organisms e.g. Humans.

Rickets is a childhood disorder that causes bones to become softer, and it brings about terrible deformities. Researchers then discovered that vitamin D can protect against rickets altogether. Supplementation can additionally prevent an adult form of the disorder called osteomalacia. Unfortunately, vitamin D deficiency is once more becoming progressively prevalent. The number of individuals with vitamin D deficiency is reportedly around one billion, but many are convinced this is a very conservative number. While the human body can produce its own vitamin D when skin is subjected to UVB light rays from the sun, people today generally don't spend plenty of time in the sun to get the vitamin D that they need. For that reason, lots of individuals are relying on vitamin D health supplements. Supplements are particularly safe and beneficial but there are some points to consider: Vitamin D Side Effects Hardly any consumers experience negative effects from vitamin D health supplements, nevertheless it can happen. The most common side effects are: - Reduced hunger - Queasiness - Vomiting In spite of vitamin D being safe dietary supplement, it is worth noting that in extreme scenarios, a vitamin d overdose can happen. Being a fat soluble vitamin, it is normally stored in fatty tissues, and can accumulate over time. This means that vitamin D levels may vary from one day to the next. If taking health supplements, it's essential that you don't go beyond the recommended daily vitamin D dosage. High dose vitamin D taken over a prolonged period of time can cause vitamin D toxicity. Nevertheless, according to the Mayo Clinic internet site, toxicity is only likely to happen in people who have been having a daily dosage of around 50,000 IU for many months. Such elevated doses can result in a number of problems, including: - Lethargy - Exhaustion - Frequent urination - Kidney problems What Exactly Is The Ideal Vitamin D3 Dosage? How much vitamin D you should take is dependent upon a number of things. Your location; diet plan; skin color and weight are just a few things that will influence your vitamin D needs. The United States Food and Drug Administration advocate a daily dosage of 600 IU, while the upper limit put forth by the authorities is 10,000 IU/day. Lots of individuals are reluctant to begin taking vitamin D3 health supplements because they are anxious about vitamin D side effects, or perhaps a vitamin D3 overdose. No sensible supplement supplier is going to suggest a daily vitamin D dosage that surpasses the official upper limit. Reliable suppliers observe internationally recognized vitamin D guidelines since they want their customers to experience only the best vitamin d effects.

Vitamin D - No Help for Dialysis Patients
www.dailyrxnews.com Vitamin D may be great, but it's no cure-all. Vitamin D supplements likely have no role in treating anemia, or low red blood cell levels, in patients on hemodialysis, a new study found. "While the study was not designed to examine all the [benefits] that nutritional vitamin D might have, the study design was sufficient for us to conclude that there is no role for nutritional vitamin D in the management of anemia in patients on hemodialysis," wrote lead study author Dana C. Miskulin, MD, an associate professor of nephrology at Tufts, and colleagues. When the kidneys are healthy, they perform the essential function of removing waste products from the blood and regulating fluid levels in the body. They also make hormones that keep bones strong and blood healthy. When the kidneys stop working, harmful wastes can build up in the body and cause life-threatening complications. Without a kidney transplant, patients need a treatment called dialysis.

Eight Common Diseases Linked to Vitamin D Deficiency
Eight Common Diseases Linked to Vitamin D Deficiency Sometimes, the remedy for a certain serious and common health condition may be in the simple correction of the deficiency of some mineral or vitamin. Vitamin D deficiency affects millions of Westerners and causes various health issues. The following 8 common diseases have been scientifically related to the chronic deficiency of vitamin D: 1. Type-2 Diabetes The journal AIDS published a study conducted in 2011 which found that the lack of this vitamin worsens the symptoms of metabolic syndrome in the case of HIV. Researchers also discovered that maintaining increased levels of vitamin D via sunlight exposure or supplementation lowers the risk of type-2 diabetes in general. 2. Hypertension The Journal of Investigative Medicine published a study which showed that people with hypertension fared better in the case of increased vitamin D levels. Also, elevated blood serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), which is a marker of vitamin D, aid to modulate vascular inflammation and other high blood pressure indicators 3. Rheumatoid arthritis One recent Canadian study has found a “considerably strong association” between vitamin D deficiency and rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers said that subjects with the lowest blood plasma levels of 25(OH)D were up to 5 times more prone to RA-related diseases than others. 4. Asthma Newest scientific research assumes that vitamin D, and especially its deficiency, is the major factor in the asthma prevalence. Especially in the case of children, this vitamin lowers the intensity of the asthma symptoms and also relieves the inflammation which restricts the airways and causes breathing difficulties. 5. Influenza The influenza rates are the highest in winter when the exposure to during the ultraviolet B rays is minimal. Research has also shown that vitamin D strengthens the immune system, so maintaining it in optimal levels will fight flu and its symptoms. 6. Dental cavities At least from the mid-1800s, experts suspected that the lack of natural sunlight exposure is the greatest reason for poor health. The lack of this vitamin has also been related to poor dental health recently, as scientists found that optimal levels of vitamin D support the healthy calcification of teeth, while its deficiency leads to dental cavities. 7. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Studies conducted in India, Europe, and the United States found a relation between reduced levels of vitamin D and increased rates of ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and other forms of IBD. Research has also shown that populations where there is an increased natural sunlight exposure have reduced rates of IBD and vice versa. 8. Cancer It has been shown that people deficient in vitamin D are more susceptible to cancers of all types, including gastric, breast, renal, prostate, cervical, ovarian, colorectal, esophageal, endometrial. On the other hand, people who maintain this vitamin in high levels in the body are less prone to developing cancer.

Vitamin D . Rickets - Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video explains about the Importance of vitamin D for bone health. Vitamin D is an essential vitamin needed for normal calcium and phosphate homeostasis. Unfortunately, over 100 million Americans including children have a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is important for proper maturation and development of bone. The importance of vitamin D is also discussed in immunity, cancer and other conditions. Some people claim vitamin D to be a miracle hormone. vitamin D is essential for strong bones, because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. The man action of vitamin D is absorption of calcium and phosphate from the intestine. Where does vitamin D come from? vitamin D comes from diet and exposure to the sun. vitamin D is naturally found in fish. Both vitamin D from diet and converted by sunlight are not biologically active and needs to be activated before achieving all of its functions. What foods are rich in vitamin D? 1-cod liver oil, best source but it tastes bad. 2-Fish such as salmon, tuna, swordfish, and oysters (need to eat a lot to meet the required amount) 3-Ham, salami, sausages 4-Fortified cereals 5-Mushrooms 6-Eggs 7-Dairy products such as milk and cheese (not a lot of vitamin D) 8-Supplements •Cod liver oil (3.5 oz): 8500 international units (very good source) •Raw herring (3.5 oz ): 900 international units •Salmon (3.5 oz) : 600 international units •Multivitamin: 400 international units •Milk ( 1cup): 100 international units (not a very good source) How about the sun? known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is produced by the body in response to skin exposed to sunlight. Cholesterol derived precursor ( pro-vitamin D3) is formed in the liver and stored in the skin. Provitamin D is activated by ultraviolet light yet it still requires more steps for activation. 10-15 minutes per day is enough exposure for light skinned individuals and darker skinned people need more exposure. If you are in the sun for 15 minutes, you may get about 10,000 units of vitamin D. How does metabolic activation occur? Metabolic activation occurs by adding two hydroxyl groups. One is at he carbon 25 in the liver and one at the carbon 1 in the kidney. Hydroxylation to 25 vitamin D3 occurs in the liver. The big organ takes the big number-25 25 (OH)- vitamin D3. Another hydroxylation occurs in the kidneys. The small organ takes the small number -1. The result will be 1,25 (OH)2- vitamin D3. This is the active form vitamin D and works mainly on the intestines and bones. Activation of vitamin D is controlled by the PTH hormone (Parathyroid hormone) any problem with this activation process of vitamin D will lead to deficiency due to an insufficient diet, lack of sun exposure, liver or kidney disease. Dilantin impairs the metabolism of vitamin D in the liver. Once the vitamin D is activated in the kidneys, it is then carried by a carrier with vitamin D binding protein to its target tissue. The target cells have receptors and vitamin D is bound to these receptors which lead to conformational changes in the nucleus. The receptors are found in the intestines, the bones and maybe the kidneys. The primary function of vitamin D is absorption of calcium and phosphates from the intestines. vitamin D influences activity of the cells that remodel and build the bone. 1,25 dihydroxy vitamin D stimulates RANKL expression. RANKL (ligand) is secreted by osteoblasts and binds to the RANK receptor on osteoclast precursor and mature osteoclast cells. Osteoclast activation stimulates bone reabsorption. In the kidneys, vitamin D helps in regulation of calcium absorption in the tubules. The parathyroid glands are on the back side of the thyroid gland. Elevated vitamin D decreases the formation of parathyroid hormone. Parathyroid hormone stimulates the conversion of 25 vitamin D3 to 1,25 hydroxyvitamin D in the proximal tubules of the kidneys by stimulating 1 alpha hydroxylase enzymes. Receptors are also found in the cardiovascular and immune systems. What are the stimuli for the release of 1,25 vitamin D? •Low serum calcium concentration •Low serum phosphate concentration •Elevated PTH levels. What are the factors that inhibit the production of vitamin D3? •Decreased parathyroid hormones •Elevated serum calcium and elevated serum phosphate. What are the net effects of vitamin D on plasma calcium and phosphate concentration •Increased plasma calcium •Increased plasma phosphate. There are three types of rickets related to vitamin D: •Vitamin D deficient •Vitamin D dependent •Vitamin D resistant.

Preventing and Reversing Chronic Kidney Disease: The hidden epidemic
This is session #8 of Dr. Wes Youngberg's "12 Weeks to Wellness & Optimal Health" series. "Preventing and Reversing Chronic Kidney Disease: The hidden epidemic!" Most of us don't think much about our kidneys and yet when healthy they filter and detoxify all of our blood more than 20 times each day! New studies show that 6 out of 10 American's will develop kidney disease. The good news is that the majority of kidney disease can be prevented and often reversed by paying attention to the factors that gradually damage the functions of the kidneys. Even mild kidney damage increases our risk of a heart attack or stroke. Carefully evaluating kidney function with blood and urine testing is valuable for early detection of kidney dysfunction and therefore changing our risk for many health complications. Suboptimal kidney function can promote weight gain, diabetes, cancer and much more. In this session we will learn the powerful influence of Vitamin D in reversing chronic kidney disease and how the normal process of detoxification by the kidneys protect us from autoimmune disease and heart disease. Case studies and proper applications of lab testing recommendations will be discussed.

Phosphorus and kidney disease - American Kidney Fund
Phosphorus is a mineral found in almost all foods. It works with calcium and vitamin D to keep your bones healthy. Healthy kidneys keep the right amount of phosphorus in your body. When your kidneys are not working well, phosphorus can build up in your blood. Too much phosphorus in your blood can lead to weak bones that break easily. Many people with kidney disease need to limit phosphorus. Depending on your stage of kidney disease, your doctor may also prescribe a medicine called a phosphate binder. This helps to keep phosphorus from building up in your blood. A phosphate binder can be helpful, but you will still need to watch how much phosphorus you eat. Ask your doctor if a phosphate binder is right for you.

Phosphorus is a mineral found in many foods. It works with calcium and vitamin D in your body to keep your bones healthy and strong. Healthy kidneys keep the right amount of phosphorus in your body, but when your kidneys are not working well, phosphorus can build up to dangerous levels in your blood. Many people with kidney disease need to limit the amount of phosphorus they eat. Depending on your stage of kidney disease, your doctor may also prescribe a medicine called a phosphate binder. Phosphate binders help to keep phosphorus from building up in your blood. Although phosphate binders help control the amount of phosphorus in your body, you will still need to watch how much phosphorus you eat.
