vitamin D sumpplementsA new study has shown that vitamin D supplements do not have any relevant association with kidney stones. The new study debunks a previously held belief that vitamin D supplements could increase the risk of developing kidney stones.

The study was led by Cedric F. Garland from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine where in they used data from the nonprofit health promotion organisation Grassroots Health to follow more than 2,000 men and women of all age groups for 19 months.

The study showed that only about 13 individuals reported a kidney stone diagnosis.

Garland said, "Mounting evidence indicates that a Vitamin D serum level in the therapeutic range of 40 to 50 ng per mL is needed for substantial reduction in risk of many diseases, including breast and colorectal cancer.”

He further added that the serum level is generally only achieved by taking the vitamin supplements. The research showed that this result could lessen the concerns by individuals regarding the intake of vitamin D supplements as there is no link that could be seen between such supplementation and an increased risk for kidney stones.
