Sudden tooth problems - estrogen or vitamin D excess?
I've never had major dental issues until recently. Suddenly I am seeing tiny cavities inside my top and bottom back teeth and a few tiny spots forming inbetween teeth!!!
This has happened quickly over the past 6 months. I clean them religiously as I always have and it's not due to excess sugar. In fact I ate a worse diet when I had zero tooth issues in younger years!
I've only noticed this since starting the progesterone. I feel like all I'm doing is stimulating estrogen (and testosterone) as I can not help my symptoms. Using more just makes me lose hair too. So I'm just wondering if this extra stimulated estrogen can be affecting my teeth like this.
I've also been on high doses of vitamin d for almost a year and a half. I started at 20,000iu then stuck to 10,000. I can't afford to check my level again. Can vitamin d excess affect teeth like this? Does anyone know?
I just read some disturbing things about too much vitamin d. One was a study on cats that have 30 times the amount of vitamin d from their food as they don't make it in their skin, and their teeth issues are terrible! It includes resorption - I am experiencing this!
I am terrified as I have no money for the dentist. I don't want to lose my teeth as well as my hair.
I also took vitamin k on and off in phases, maybe I need more of this?
I'm terrified I have screwed with hormones too much and am going to lose all my teeth as well as my hair.
Does anyone know anything about teeth in relation to hormones and excess vitamin d, or anything else? Or has anyone experienced anything similar.
I must need 8 fillings and I only had 2 done in the past 10 plus years!
I have no idea what I'm going to do or how to explain this to my partner. (In my thirties btw)
