Low Vitamin D
by: Rivki

My vitamin D Level last year was at a 28 and my doctor was quite concerned with it being so low. I had been taking 6,000 IU a day and was not absorbing it.

My doctor had pointed out to me that there was a correlation with having low vitamin D levels and not being able to have wheat and gluten. What she had explained to me when you have wheat and gluten intolerance it prevents the absorption of vitamin D. I went on wheat and gluten free diet for 3 months and took Vitamin D3 of 50,000 three times a week and following a strict diet as well.

I had my levels checked after 3 months of being on this diet and it had gone up to a 92. I continue to follow a Gluten Intolerance Diet which is what works for me to keep my vitamin D levels up. I have not had a problem with my vitamin D levels since then and they continue to be normal and as a result I have had many positive changes in my life as a result.

My Vit D level has always been in the tens,I taken 50.000 twice a week for over three yrs, and still can't maintain my level.& my 30yrs daughter has just been told her Vit D level is 8 so now she is taking 50.000 I think it maybe hereditary,I have very bad back & muscle pains,I do not test positive for Gluten intolerance but,I think of trying the Diet for a while.

And it's not lack of Sun because I live in sunny Florida and I adore the Sun, but some of my pills warn me not to go out in the sun to often. Sometimes you just can't win it seems.So keep your chin up and join the club!!:-)

It may not have gone down..

It may not have gone down at all. I suspect that one of those levels is an 'outlier' a stastically insignificant level that is just an aberration- meaning that it's likely that the lab made an error on one of them.

Just get your level checked again to confirm that it truly is 11 ng/ml and that the 11 was not a lab error.

Depending upon where you live and what your sun habits are and what symptoms you are experiencing and your medical history, you may have actually been much lower in December and the 50,000 slightly raised your levels or maintained them at the low level it was in December. If you live in the Northern part of the Northern Hemisphere or the southern part of the Southern Hemisphere and don't take supplements and you have health problems, I wouldn't have expected your levels to be as high as they were and a level of 6 or 7 would have probably been more accurate.

But I don't know your situation to be able to speculate much...
