Vitamin D

4 posts in this topic

Recently I when to see a doctor for my Osteoporosis Treatment, the doctor I saw

was a Meabolic Bone Disease doctor. She had me take a blood test for my vitamin

levels. The results warranted a 24 hour urine test to see how I am absorbing vitamin D,

the results where I had a vitamin D defecincy and put me on 50,000 units of

vitamin D and due to my allergy to the soy in the vitamins I had a problem

with bloating and it caused constant coughing. I also found a connection to my

vaginal yeast infection due my Lichen Scoliosis (associated with my Thyroid

Diease/Sjorgens Disease) caused by eating sugar and or the vitamin D?.

Anyone with simular problems, reactions or can help please connact me.

I take a vitamin D supplement and a multivitamin with vitamin D in it every day. I also drink boost sometimes as well. Vitamin D is not naturally in most foods (it is fortified in milk) and if you don't get much sun it is easy to become deficient.

due to my allergy to the soy in the vitamins I had a problem

with bloating and it caused constant coughing

Maybe ask your pharmacist or doctor for a soy free and gluten free vitamin D supplement, or ask if boost or any other vitamin drinks are soy and gluten free. Or if you're not allergic to dairy just drink tons of milk!

This is very interesting information. I recently talked to my alt. M.D. and he was telling me the Vit D RDA was 400 but should be 4,000 I.U.!!

I assume you won't be on the 50,000 I.U.'s for too long as it is fat soluble and can build up in your system...

I am very sensitive to soy and have Hashi's thyroiditis so shouldn't have it anyway... Soy is one of the top three food allergens and I think we are going to see more and more people becoming allergic to it because it is in everything..even infant's formula!

I use Dry D which has no soy, and Cod liver oil which also has Vit. D, but no soy. All the other fish oils I've found use soy..and there is no reason to do so other than it is cheap!!

Is Boost dairy and soy free besides being gluten-free?

I don't need it unless I used it as a meal replacement.....could stand to loose 15 - 20 as it is.

As far as I know, all flavours of boost are gluten and lactose free except chocolate malt which is only lactose free. I am unsure if boost or certain kinds of boost are soy free.

Boost also has vitamin D, but only like 25% or so of your daily intake.

    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!
    • gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old
      Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      The bloating has, if anything, got worse. It seems better when I'm lay down, when I stand it gets worse. Although the lymph swelling has gone down so maybe I'm through the worst. Hope so anyway... I never used to get a great deal of GI symptoms. Certainly not so serious as the other stuff. It's making me wonder if I just react differently now having been gluten-free for some time. I've noticed lot's of you saying that reactions seem to change over time. Of course its possible the other stuff was masking the GI things. I almost dont trust my memory of those times anymore because a whole chunk of my life seems to have been lived through a brain fog. Tomorrow I'm thinking of going away for a couple of days, maybe just taking some ultra simple food with me so I can try and settle my stomach by boring it into submission

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it. Thank You,
