Found out why I prolly developed that kidney stone. Doc did a blood test and found my Vit D level too high. I've been taking a lot lately (for the past year or so). I took 6 pills per day totaling 6000 IU's and I found out that taking too much can cause kidney stones so there ya go. I heard that living here in the Pacific Northwest we don't always have a lot of sun and that most people are lacking in Vit D.so I thought I'd make sure I was getting enough. Well I guess I wasn't low in the first place so I lived and learned a lesson. Get your counts checked before prescribing your own vitamin regime. Too much Vit D can cause serious problems in the long run and not just kidney stones. It can calcify in your arteries etc. ex[medic]

I had heard it could cause problems but didn't know what.
