From a recent update by Consumerslab.com:

"Women taking a daily calcium (1,000 mg) and vitamin D (400 IU) supplement showed a 17% increase in kidney stones compared to women who did not receive the supplement (Wallace, Am J Clin Nutr 2011). The increased risk, however, is small, as only 0.35% of the women taking the calcium/vitamin D supplement reported kidney stones, compared to 0.30% of the women in the control group. A similar (17% to 20%) increase in kidney stones has been reported in studies with calcium supplementation alone, suggesting that calcium, rather than vitamin D, is the causative factor. The increased risk of kidney stones in women has been observed with calcium from supplements but not with calcium from dietary sources."

My D is around 60 and holding steady there for over 6 months.  Why take the mag so high?  FWIW, my dietary calcium is fairly low.
