Elevated Vit. A And K Levels?

Recommended Posts

My PCP just called...the nurse actually, and my A and K levels were REALLY high from the blood they drew. Anyone know why that would be? I would have thought them to be low.

He's faxing the results to my GI. Wonder what he will say or do?

just found this online....

Some of the most common signs and symptoms of vitamin A toxicity, which usually fall under the condition of hypervitaminosis A, include fatigue; headaches; muscle, joint and bone pain; dry, flaking skin; alopecia; amenorrhea; gastrointestinal problems, including nausea and vomiting; pruritus; and weight loss. Other problems that vitamin A overdose can cause include hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, liver damage, and a condition known as pseudotumor cerebri.1,2,3,4

Did you take a big ol multi-vitamin before the test?

Are you taking cod liver oil?

Eat a lot of liver?

Tons of green leafy vegetables till they are coming out your ears?

If you took a multi with Vit A and K before the test...it could skew it. You should stop taking your multi and retest in a few weeks.

Do you take vitamins at all, and if so, what do you take?

neesee

I take a double dose of Calcium every day...Everyday Calcium with Enzymes from Rainbow Light. Occasionally I take Rainbow Light's Women's Nutritional System Multi+Daily Program. I'm supposed to take 4 of those a day, but I can only get them down on a good day. They stink and taste like they smell and if I'm the least bit queasy, they ain't going no where!

I take other meds too, for high blood pressure, anxiety and Restless Leg Syndrome.
