Males red arrow is > 840 IU of vitamin D

Possible reason: high Calcium levels ==> Inflammation ==> Vitamin D used up

Some of the problems of excess Calcium (which causes inflammation) may be decreased by

  1. Magnesium
  2. Vitamin K
  3. Water
  4. Consuming Calcium from plants not rocks

Calcium bioavailability and how much to take has the following

There are indications that an increased intake of calcium has a vitamin D sparing effect, which might be explained by a decreased catabolism of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D). However, there are only a few studies where this has been examined.

In the seventh survey of the Tromsø study, serum 25(OH)D and parathyroid hormone were measured, and questionnaires on calcium and vitamin D intakes filled in.

There were significant interactions between sex, calcium and vitamin D intakes regarding serum 25(OH)D level. The analyses were therefore done stratified. In males there was, regardless of vitamin D intake, a significant decrease in serum 25(OH)D with increasing calcium intake. The difference in serum 25(OH)D between those with the highest and lowest calcium intakes was approximately 10%. In the females, there was in subjects with low vitamin D intake (< 7 μg/d) a significant increase in serum 25(OH)D with increasing calcium intake, which could not be explained by secondary hyperparathyroidism. In females with higher vitamin D intakes, increasing calcium intake was associated with lower serum 25(OH)D levels.

There is, at least in subjects with an adequate vitamin D intake, a negative association between calcium intake and serum 25(OH)D.
