What will happen to vitamin D when medullary sponge kidney disease occur? The kidneys make the active form of vitamin D, but may not be able to do when diseased. That is, low vitamin D will occur in medullary sponge kidney disease.
Vitamin D and the kidneys
The normal calcium level in the blood is 8.2 to 10.2 mg/dL. When the calcium level is low, the parathyroid gland secretes parathyroid hormone to the bones, which then release calcium. The kidneys absorb more calcium and also convert the inactive form of vitamin D into the active form. The active form signals the intestines to absorb more calcium. A kidney damage caused by medullary sponge kidney disease may not be able to make the active form of the vitamin.
How to normalize vitamin D in medullary sponge kidney disease?
In kidney disease, the kidney loses the ability to make vitamin D active. Supplementation with special active vitamin D is determined by calcium, phosphorus and PTH levels and available only by prescription.
Additionally, Chinese medicines are most effective to repair injured kidneys and improve kidney function. When kidney function is improved, it can make active vitamin D. On the basis of traditional Chinese medicines, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is created but used externally, which can avoid the bitterness and stimulating the gastrointestinal tract. The active ingredients can come to kidney lesion directly via an osmosis device. Through dilating blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing necessary nutrients, damaged kidneys can be repaired and gradually kidney function will be improved.
