with as yet under-recognized wider effects

Soft-Tissue Mineralization of Bullfrog Larvae (Rana Catesbeiana) at a Wastewater Treatment Facility
http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10. ... 1002200430
Bullfrog tadpoles (Rana catesbeiana) from a wastewater treatment facility were identified with severe lesions consisting of large, up to 1-cm in diameter, mineralized nodules protruding from the tail or gular region. ... The nodules consisted entirely of calcium phosphate, and the lesions appeared to be novel. Total serum calcium concentrations of tadpoles and calcium concentrations in water samples did not differ significantly with increasing distance from the discharge site. Affected tadpoles had elevated cholecalciferol (25-OH-vitamin D3) levels. ... To date, the primary cause of elevated cholecalciferol is undetermined, but it appears to be remediated by passage of water through the wetlands.

yes... it's a real mystery... :S
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
