Dr. Spry, can Vitamin D help improve kidney function? Does Vitamin D help the kidneys?

Vitamin D is sometimes used to treat the complications of chronic kidney disease (CKD) such as secondary hyperparathyroidism with bone and mineral disease.  The vitamin D is not used to increase kidney function or treat the CKD.
