Vitamin D and Low Potassium Levels
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen

Hi Sondra,

Wow. It sounds like you are having some serious problems and that you need to take some aggressive action and FAST if you don't want to let yourself continue to deteriorate!!

First of all, a Vitamin D Level of 8.1 is a VERY SEVERE Vitamin D Deficiency and you need to be treated VERY AGGRESSIVELY for this at doses that may seem VERY HIGH for a few months and Get Your Vitamin D Level Checked again in 2 to 3 months to see if you are getting up into the 50 to 80 ng/ml 'optimal' range.

Also, if you are having a potassium deficiency, joint and muscle pain and difficulty walking, please read my page on What Causes Low Potassium since you need to understand that low potassium levels are actually CAUSED by low magnesium levels regardless of whether your magnesium level was low or not.

Next, with all of these problems, just taking some vitamin d or a couple of vitamins is NOT going to be of much benefit. You are going to need to change your lifestyle COMPLETELY and Quickly!!!

Get an OK from your doctor to start diet and exercise changes and immediately:

1) Stop eating all processed foods
2) Stop eating sugar in any form
3) Stop any caffeine intake
4) Do a 2 month trial of a Gluten Intolerance Diet. This is probably going to be one of the MOST important things that you can do, so don't skip over this.
5) Start eating ONLY Organic foods
6) Base your diet almost ENTIRELY on organic fruits, vegetables, legumes with small frequent amounts of organic free range animal protein.
7) Expose your skin to the sun regularly on a daily basis and/or get regular sunlight exposure

Sondra, these are only a FEW suggestions to get you started. There are many more changes that you need to get started on now to avoid some serious problems.
