Too high vitamin D levels? Why?

I just got test results back from my GP. Turns out my vit D levels are 122 nmol/L, which seems like a lot?

I don't take any supplements, and don't spend much time in the sun. I did get sunburned earlier this year though.

My GP didn't test my calcium, PTH og blood cell levels.. And he's closed at the moment.

What could cause this? Makes my really anxious.

Hello~I did some research on this, and it seems that the level you have is not dangerous, in fact, the author goes on to say that even above 150 nmol/l is not dangerous. It seems that being exposed to large amounts of sun in the past can also cause a rise in the levels, such as the sunburn you got earlier in the year.

I would certainly tell your GP that you want your calcium levels checked as high levels can cause high levels of Vitamin D as well. But, in the meantime, try not to worry, your numbers are fine.

I agree.  The times in which there is toxicity of Vitamin D which is called hypervitaminosis D happens almost exclusively as a result of over supplementation.  To the numbers of 60,000 mg a day for months.  Your numbers seem fine and I personally would not worry.  :>))
