Vitamin K Indications -Tx of Blood clotting d/o, reverse coumadin overdose -Pvx/Tx of osteoporosis -Atherosclerosis (red. CAD)
Vitamin K Dietary Sources + Dosages -Sources: turnip greens, broccoli, dark/leafy veggies, beef liver, oats, cheese, green tea. -K2 synthesized in LI by bacteria -Dosage: 100-1000mcg/day
Vitamin K Interactions -contraindicated w/ Warfarin -food sources should be monitored during anti-coagulant therapies
Vitamin K Deficiency Hemorrhagic Dz of the newborn, Easy bleeding
Vitamin K Toxicity None reported, although adverse effects seen w/ precursor menadione and water soluble derivative menadiol (both no longer used)
Calcium Biochemistry Major extracellular cation. Main constituent of bone. In intestinal lumen, binds and precipitates bile acids.
Calcium Indications Osteoporosis, Leg cramps, Cancer Pvx, Preeclampsia pvx, HTN, Hypertriglyceridemia/cholesterolemia, Wt loss (fat oxidation), PMS
Calcium Dietary Sources + Dosages Dairy, fortified fruit juice, fortified soy, green leafy veggies (not spinach) -Dosage: supplementation 600-1200mg/day where diet provides 400-1000 mg/day.
Calcium Interactions Glucocorticoids deplete Ca, Inhibits Antibiotics, bisphonates, aluminium absorption, and thiazide diuretics may cause hypercalcemia
Calcium Testing Serum

Calcium Toxicity Constipation, Hypochlorhydria, Hypercalcemia, Inc. MI
Magnesium Biochemistry important intracellular cation, necessary for proper function of muscle tissue and the nervous system and cofactor in a large number of enzymes.
Magnesium Indications Mitral Valve prolapse sxs, CVD (MI, CHF), Asthma, Mg Deficiency Sxs, Diabetes (improve insulin resistance), HTN (hypotensive), Osteoporosis,
Magnesium Dietary Sources/Dosages Sources:whole grains, nuts, legumes, dark green vegetables, fish, and meat. -Dosages:Supplemental 200-600mg/day, RDA range: 80-420mg/day
Magnesium Interactions Diuretics/Platinum/B agonists/laxatives (deplete),
Magnesium Toxicities Diarrhea and IV form (cautions: hypotension, bradycardia, or respiratory depression (avoid in those w/ recent heart attack)
Magnesium Deficiencies fatigue, depression, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, hyperventilation, muscle spasms and fasciculations, chest tightness, confusion, and memory loss.
Magnesium Testing Serum levels not predictive of stores (RBC and WBC forms better), 24 hr urine test best.
