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. [FONT=Geneva][SIZE=7]lospa@earthlink.net

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.
