Why are you even getting injections?
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Jan,

I don't understand why you would be getting injections in the first place anyway. Please read my pages on Vitamin D Injections

and my page on Vitamin D Therapy for what your doctor SHOULD be doing instead of injections.

So, unless you are unable to swallow because of a serious medical condition, getting injections of vitamin d is completely and totally unnecessary.

what are you suppose to do when you have chronic kidney disease and the drs say your vitamin D needs to be higher but your stomach can't handle it by mouth.

Stomach can't handle it? Why?

Try the following:

1) Switching to a 'no oil' brand
2) Take it with your evening meal, making sure you have fat in it
4) Get sun
5) Use a vitamin d producing tanning bed
6) Solve the problem that is making your stomach not able to tolerate a supplement that almost everyone can easily tolerate. For instance, maybe you do not have enough stomach acid. So, increasing your stomach acid might be one solution

It is not uncommon to feel pain initially as your body absorbs D3. Once you get your levels up your pain will be gone.
