Hello
I have been feeling VERY achey for the last couple weeks. I went in and spoke with my doctor and told her my concern about my vitamin levels. She warned me that my complaints sounded like I was being cc. She did run my vitamin levels. My B was fine. She just emailed yesterday my D was low normal at 31 with the reference range being 30-80. She suggested increasing my d supplement. But now I am left wondering if I am so achey because of my d? Is that level low enough to cause aches and pain and fatigue?

Whether or not the low Vitamin D level is causing your aches, you should start supplementing soon because Vitamin D is a very important nutrient for keeping you well and protecting you from certain cancers. For people with celiac, it's advised at conferences that we take Country Life Natural Vitamin D, which contains Vitamin A (you need to take a proper ratio of Vitamin D to A because there are twice as many A receptors on our cells as D receptors) as well medium-chain triglycerides, which help people with celiac to absorb both the D and A. This is important! Otherwise, you may supplement with just Vitamin D....and very little will happen to your level.

Regarding your aches and pains, have you been tested for thyroid problems? Achy joints and tendinitis-like pains can occur when your thyroid is even a little bit "off." This is always the first symptom I get when I begin to go either hypo- or hyperthyroid. I have Hashimoto's, which has been under control for a few years, but occasionally my level tips one way or the other. Another way to tell if it's your thyroid is if you're becoming somewhat constipated, you may be becoming hypothyroid; conversely, if your stools have suddenly become more frequent and loose, you may be becoming hyperthyroid. Also, you may suffer from foggy thinking and memory problems or fatigue.

Lastly, the aching may be due to your ingestion of the wrong ratio of Omega 6s to 3s. If you take 1/2 teaspoon of organic flaxseed oil with 3/4 teaspoon of organic safflower oil mixed into a smoothie or a glass of juice each day, you may get some relief within a few days if this is what's causing your pain.
