Low Vitamin D And Iron - Nausea Connection?
0

9 posts in this topic

I have been feeling nauseous for awhile. I found out today I have low Vitamin D. I took some D3 and my nausea went away. I haven't found nausea listed as a symptom of low Vitamin D anywhere.

My ferritin is on the low end of normal so I'm supplementing with iron too. Just took that. I took the two of them separately in case they bothered my tummy.

Did anyone else have nausea with either of these being low? I want the nausea to go away! I hate it.

(I'm not getting glutened. I have zero gluten in my house including my soaps and shampoos, etc. )

My morning nausea has improved, nearly subsided since supplementing Vitamin D3 after a low lab result in Vit. D. I like the drops, BTW. You just stick a drop on a teaspoon and lick it off, or you can stick a drop in any liquid you have in the morning.

I've never seen medical articles correlating nausea & Vitamin D defficiency though.

I get a bout of C when I supplement iron, had to go with iron free multivitamin. Good luck, sandsurf! I hate nausea too, but I've always been prone to it, even before having an issue with gluten.

I had nausea after STARTING iron and D (I am low on both) but it has subsided.

My doc is prescribing Vitamin D in a high dose for 4 weeks. The nausea has been pretty mild until Sunday. There's a virus going around, so I'm wondering if I got mildly sick. I've been tired and feeling blah, plus the bad nausea. I am testing for Cushings now and there is a tumor on my adrenal gland that may need surgery. So that complicates things too.

Thanks Marilyn. This is such a difficult time for me. Today was particularly bad because I felt so sick and a very close friend died yesterday unexpectedly. Almost 2 years ago I got diagnosed celiac and was sick for 6 months before I started really feeling good. I had a good run and then about 7 weeks ago got very sick because my hormones were out of whack. Spent 10 days in the hospital and they found which hormones were wacky and the adrenal tumor. I want off this roller coaster!

I'm glad to hear Vitamin D can help with nausea. It seemed to help earlier and the nausea came back tonight. Maybe the high dose prescription one will be better when I take it tomorrow.

I have seen medical studies linking nausea and low Vitamin D, I know someone after nausea for months, they found her level was only 0.17 the lowest they could read in the range!

I was found to be severly deficient in April, and it took me a solid 2 weeks of 70,000 units a week before I started to feel serious relief from my symptoms (extreme fatigue). I also dropped 9 pounds like it was nothing, after struggling with weight loss! Good Luck! I know even now if I stop supplementing for 1 week the fatigue creeps back. But am now just starting the gluten free diet also.

Dear Sandsurf,

Sorry I haven't checked this thread for a few days. So sorry to learn of your loss.

I just wanted to mention that from what I've researched, Vitamin D1 doesn't really help, but D3 does. Some old school doctors prescribe D1. I thought I'd mention that...and hope you're feeling betting soon.

Hugs! (( ))

I've been on doctor prescribed vitamin D and iron pills for a while. I get nauseous after I get glutened. I wonder if it's because my body can't absorb the supplements because of the gluten? I don't know. But the Vitamin D and iron have really helped with my fatigue and my mood.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Hives can be caused by so many things but primarily, it's either allergy related or autoimmune related.  You can have autoimmune hives which can result from having one or more AI diseases.  I get hives but mine pop when it gets warm and wet......I am severely allergic to molds. They just about appear and disappear quickly, if the weather goes from wet to dry. I use Benadryl to keep them from getting too bad, when needed. I also use children's Benadryl because it works just as well as the adult formula but makes me less drowsy. You can be more susceptible to environmental allergies when you have Celiac.  Is this a problem for you and your sister? 
    • Gluten withdrawals/legs welling/bloating
      Welcome to then forum, Mona! No swelling for me but I can encourage you to read our Newbie 101 section under "Coping".  Learning how to be gluten free takes time.  Withdrawal affects some of us, but not all.  Remember this is an autoimmune disorder that is triggered by gluten (unlike MS or lupus where the trigger is unknown).  But when triggered the autoimmune response (aka "flare up") can last for days, weeks or months.  So, please give yourself time.  Try to rest and put up your feet after work.  Hopefully, others here will have good tips for your specific complaint -- swelling. Read through the forum.  Ask questions.  We are here to help.  Like you, my GI just gave me a list of gluten-free restaurants.  Really!   Take care!  You will get better!  
    • Eating food cooked on a grill (eg, quesadillas, fish)
      If you have Celiac, you would want a clean grill or piece of foil.  Pieces of flour tortilla will stick to the grill and then transfer onto your corn tortilla.  Same with grilled sandwiches.  
    • 9 year Old going through testing
      The clues keep mounting, don't they?  If more docs paid attention to all this, they wouldn't be complaining about how many people go undiagnosed!  Part of the problem is the medical attitude.
    • TTg IAG > 100 but also Hasimoto's
      Although Hashi's can raise tTg levels, usually it's a lesser increase than a 124.  I have both Celiac and Hashi's.  So...it would not be a false positive at all.  You either just have Hashi's or you have both Celiac and Hashi's. Seeing as Hashi's occurs frequently with Celiac, you need to eat that awful gluten for testing.  Also, Synthroid may not be the best choice for treatment with someone who has autoimmune thyroid disease.  Very often, many find that treating with both T3 and T4 hormone works the best at taming down those symptoms.  If you are still symptomatic after treatment, they need to test you for your thyroid hormones, T3 and T4..which very often they do not.  They go by the TSH, which is not the best choice for monitoring your levels. You could also have celiac and not be absorbing your meds well. Something to keep in mind.......good luck with testing!

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
