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. 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.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
