Is Being Thirsty A Symptom of Vitamin D Deficiency?

Is Being Thirsty A Symptom of Vitamin D Deficiency?

I am a 52 year old male and just been told by my doctor that my Vitamin D levels are down via a vitamin d serum blood test. All my other tests are good.

Maybe this can explain why I have felt rotten for the past couple of years!

I have read many of your comments... a little confused on symptoms though.

I certainly have the muscle, joint aches, and fatigue.

Could you explain BRAINFOG? I suffer from very dull headaches and easily confused. Is this brainfog?

Being an engineer, this is very frustrating. Thinking at times becomes very difficult.
I also am very thirsty at times. Is this a symptom of Vitamin D Deficiency?

Could you give me any more symptoms that I might expect and the recommended dosage to rectify this problem?

Thank you

Hi Scott,

Well, as far as the dosage for treatment of your vitamin d deficiency is concerned, I would need

More About Vitamin D

to know what your vitamin d serum level is in order to be able to help you with that. It would also depend upon whether you have any other medical conditions and whether your calcium level is elevated- as that changes everything.

So, if all is otherwise normal, the 'usual' dosage for treatment of vitamin d deficiency is about 50,000 IU's per week for 6 to 12 weeks and then Check Your Vitamin D Level again.

Yes, your muscle aches and pains COULD be due to vitamin d deficiency- although until you get your levels up to within the 'optimal' range of 40 to 60, you won't know for sure.

'Brain fog' is simply a term used by many people for the feeling that they have of not being able to think sharply.

Brain fog COULD have many different causes. Among the reasons that people in my practice get brain fog are:

Vitamin B12 Deficiency
H Pylori Bacteria
Candida Overgrowth infection
Parasitic Infections
Gluten Sensitivity

So, while getting your vitamin D deficiency treated is GREAT, it certainly might not solve all of your problems. But treating your Vitamin D Deficiency is getting off to a good start.

In so much pain right now with lower back muscles.

I had my doctor do a blood test because It had been a while and I thought my thyroid was not acting right.. Well that test for TSH came back all right. I asked her to do the vitamin d test. IT is not run with the regular blood work usually.

I see everything I was complaining of fits into the signs of low vitamin D. Well it came back with a 12.5 reading.Very Low. I have been going to her for 5 years with all the same symptoms and it could have been tested a long time ago.

I am now taking 10,000 a day until the 3rd of the month when I get my check, then I will get the 50,000 to do once a week for a while. So ask for a vitamin d test if you feel bad with muscle aches and depression and the other symptoms you see in here for the low vitamin D.
