Alaskan with Vit D Deficiency
by Alaskan who misses the sun
(Elmendorf AFB, AK)
I am military and moved to alaska 18 months ago. I had my vit d levels checked due to extreme exhaustion to the point I've been laying in bed 3 weeks. It was 16. I was given 50000 iu once a week for 12 weeks. Also I went to the er 3 weeks ago with extreme anxiety and constant heart palpitations. My potassium, magnesium and calcium were all low and blood glucose was elevated. I know now that they go together with vit d deficiency.
My question is this....right now im taking the 50000iu on mondays, a multivit with 600 iu of vit d
250 mg magmagnesium
500 mg of calcium
And also am taking a calcium carbonate pill with 600 mg calcium and 400 iu D3.
In your opinion is another magnesium supplement recommended due to the fact that it was clinically low and that I have vitamin d def already? I have been eating potassium and magnesium rich foods as much as I can.
Im only on day 3 of the 50000iu of vit d but I feel horrible. I can't leave the bed or couch, can't think clearly, can't function. I feel like im dying but my docs just say to only take the 50000ius of D and wait it out. My research says more magnesium....id appreciate your opinion. Thanks so much.
