Vitamin D Deficiency and MS
I am 36 yrs old and just had bloodwork done w/ a gastroenterologist due to chronic constipation. The bloodwork was normal with the exception of a very low Vitamin D level. The doctor wants me to take 2,000 IU's of Vitamin D. for 8 weeks and then get rechecked. My question is that my sister who is 48 has M.S. and I've read there is a link for M.S. and low vitamin D. Should I be worried?
I am otherwise healthy, never smoked, just had a healthy first baby 8 months ago. I have had pain in my ankles since September, but otherwise feel good. Doctors do not know what is causing the pain.
Thanks for any insight.
