Low vitamin D levels and Multiple sclerosis

I know they are looking at low Vitamin levels and the correlation with getting MS.


I have MS and have a level of 16. What is the relationship with being an MS patient and having current low vit D levels?

Multiple Sclerosis and Vitamin D
by: Kerri Knox, RN-The Immune Health Queen!

Wow! You have Multiple Sclerosis and you have only heard that they have 'connected' the two. This is a shame that this information is not out into the general public. Please read my page on MS and Vitamin D

There have been several studies showing a decreased incidence of flare ups of symptoms in those with Multiple Sclerosis who were taking VERY HIGH doses of vitamin D and getting their vitamin D levels quite high.

It's really a shame that your doctor has let you actually get diagnosed with vitamin D without having had a Vitamin D Level BEFORE being diagnosed. In my opinion, no one should EVER be diagnosed with any chronic degenerative disease without first testing and treating:

Vitamin D Deficiency
Vitamin B12 Deficiency and
Celiac Disease/Gluten Sensitivity

These three things can mimic and/or exacerbate these types of conditions so much that it is imperative that they be considered before a diagnosis is ever made.


But here we are and you have already been diagnosed with MS and you are just now finding out about your vitamin D deficiency. It's very sad.


But you need to DEFINITELY get your vitamin D deficiency treated and you need to read the page that I already wrote about MS and Vitamin D. Insist on aggressive treatment and having your vitamin D Levels checked every 3 months until your levels are within the 'optimum' range of between 40 to 80 ng/ml.

Also, I would highly suggest getting the book The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions. It was written by an MD who reversed her MS after western medicine failed her.
