Vitamin D consumers don’t need to worry about kidney stones

Taking vitamin D does not increase the risk for kidney stones, the study found. People’s age, gender and weight, however, may play a role in developing the condition.

…The new study used data on more than 2,000 adults of all ages. After following the participants for 19 months, researchers found that only 13 people reported being diagnosed with a kidney stone during that time

…Men also are at greater risk for kidney stones than women, the study found. But vitamin D users are not, it suggested.

As a comment, I’ve been taking high dose D for about seven years now and have never had an episode of kidney stones.
