Q:

Are there risks from taking too much Vitamin D?

A:

If you take Vitamin D in excess you may interfere with the calcium absorption in your body, driving your calcium levels up as well. This can lead to an increased chance of kidney stones, and there is no benefit to the extra Vitamin D that is weighing out this health risk. Your physician can help you determine your Vitamin D and supplementation needs.

Q:

What medications do I need for my rheumatoid arthritis?

A:

Common medications that are prescribed for rheumatoid arthritis include a group of drugs called NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories). Well-known NSAIDs include Aspirin and Ibuprofin, but there are several others you may be prescribed if appropriate. Your rheumatologist or physician will determine which medications are best for you as soon as your symptoms are diagnosed.

Q:

Will I be able to move my foot normally after healing from a broken bone?

A:

How well your foot recovers from a broken bone will depend on the nature of the injury, as well as how serious your foot has been affected. The goal of recovery is to return your foot to its usual range of motion, and sometimes surgery is necessary to correct the bones. In a very serious break, there may be a need to fuse the bones in your foot together to stabilize the joint.
