The features of uremia include fatigue, lethargy, somnolence, coma, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, hematemesis, gastric ulcers, diarrhea, dysentery, cardiac failure, pericarditis, cardiomyopathy, edema, hypertension, pleuritis, pulmonary edema, pulmonary hemorrhage, anemia, thrombasthenia, purpura, rickets, osteomalacia, osteitis fibrosa, pruritis, and peripheral neuropathy.

High doses of calcitriol and maternal hypercalcemia have contributed to maternal hypercalciuria, nephrolithiasis, renal impairment, and neonatal seizures in addition to life-threatening complications (such as craniofacial abnormalities, supravalvular aortic stenosis, other fetal malformations, and even teratogenicity) in animal studies, secondary to suppression of fetal parathyroid glands whereas inadequate vitamin D supplementation has led to reactive fetal hyperparathyroidism with intracranial bleed, rickets, skeletal demineralization, subperiostal bone resorption, osteitis fibrosa cystica, and subsequent intrauterine fractures [1, 2, 5].
