A study, published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, warns about the most common symptoms of vitamin D toxicity (VDT).

Vitamin D plays a vital role in keeping your body’s cells healthy and functioning the way they should. Most people don’t get enough or required doses of vitamin D, so supplements are common.

Sometimes, it’s also possible for this vitamin to build up and reach toxic levels in your body which is known as vitamin D toxicity.

In a study published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, vitamin D toxicity was further investigated.

The study noted:

Although vitamin D toxicity is rare, the health effects can be serious if it is not promptly identified.

Confusion, apathy, recurrent vomiting, abdominal pain, polyuria, polydipsia, and dehydration are the most often noted clinical symptoms of vitamin D toxicity.

In healthy individuals, exogenous vitamin D toxicity is usually caused by prolonged use (months) of vitamin D mega doses, but not by the abnormally high exposure of skin to the sun or by eating a diversified diet.

Symptoms of VDT may be similar to those of other hypercalcaemic states and include neuropsychiatric manifestations, such as difficulty in concentration, confusion, apathy, drowsiness, depression, psychosis, and in extreme cases, a stupor and coma.

The gastrointestinal symptoms of VDT include recurrent vomiting, abdominal pain, polydipsia, anorexia, constipation, peptic ulcers, and pancreatitis.

Other signs you may have too much vitamin D intake include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Frequent urination
  • Appetite loss
  • Thirst
  • Dehydration
  • Constipation
  • Muscle weakness
