Vitamin D

Recommended Posts

Hi - Wondering if anyone else has had to do this. I had my one year celiac check up and my CBC and Thyroid tests were all great, etc...however my vitamin D is still low (I consume barely any calcium, besides being celiac). My doc put me on prescription vitamin D capsules once per week 50,000 IU for the next 6 months (then I have to keep getting my levels checked...)

Anyone else deal with this - I've tried being out in the sun, but live up north so it's hard in the winter.

Thank you.

A

No, but I have a son we adopted from Russia and he had rickets. It's important, so do what you can. I've read that even sitting in a sunny window is better than nothing. You need to let the sun hit as much of your body as you can, especially your chest. Whenever the weather is nice enough, I sit outside in a sheltered area so it feels warmer. Of course, it's getting too cold to do this now. In the summer I try to get out in a bathing suit at least 20 minutes per day without sunscreen in the morning or late afternoon. We've been made so paraniod about sun exposure being bad that we've overcompensated.

I just had test done for Vit D, 24 hr calcium and thyroid, should have results and I will let you know if she puts me on something. She wants to see how much I am absorbing ? Not sure. <_<
